Dear Brother/Sister,

[Quran 5:90] O you who believe! Khamr (INTOXICANTS), Maysir (GAMBLING), Ansab (DEDICATION OF STONES), and Azlam (DIVINATION BY ARROWS)are a Rijs (abomination) of Shaytan's handiwork. So avoid that in order that you may be successful.

[Quran 5:91] Shaytan wants only to excite enmity and hatred between you with Khamr (INTOXICANTS) and Maysir (GAMBLING), and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and from the Salah (PRAYER). So, will you not then abstain.

[Quran Surah Baqara 2:219] They ask you concerning Khamr (INTOXICANTS) and Maysir (GAMBLING). Say: "In them is great sin, and some profit, for men; but the sin is greater than the profit." They ask you how much they are to spend; Say: "What is beyond your needs." Thus does Allah/God Make clear to you His Signs: In order that you may consider-

As we all know that stock markets can be used as a legal gambling place. So if your earnings are from those gambling trade - then I am sorry its not worth it.

Muslim Book 013, Hadith Number 4005.
Chapter : What reward man gets after his death.

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: When a man dies, his acts come to an end, but three, recurring charity, or knowledge (by which people) benefit, or a pious son, who prays for him (for the deceased).

Abu Hurairah also reported, “The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, ‘The righteous works that continue to benefit a believer after his death include the knowledge that he taught and spread among others, a righteous son whom he leaves behind, or a copy of the Qur’an that he bequeaths to his inheritors, or a mosque that hebuilds, or a rest house that he builds for the wayfarers, or a canal of water that he digs for the benefit of others,or a charity that he gives out of his property during his life while he is sound of health. He will continue to receive reward for all these even after his death.’ (Ibn Majah)
