REMEMBER TO PAY YOUR FITRAH

REMEMBER TO PAY YOUR FITRAH

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah

REMEMBER TO PAY YOUR FITRAH

Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah and Haakim have reported from Ibn Ab’bas radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam stipulated the Zakaat-ul-Fitr, (i.e. Fitrah) so that the fasts may be purified from shameless and vulgar words and so that the needy (Miskeen) may be fed.

Dailmi, Khateeb and Ibn Asaakir report from Anas radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘the fasts of a servant remains suspended between the skies and the earth, until he does not discharge the Sadaqa e Fitr.’

Law:  For Sadaqa e Fitr to become Waajib, fasting is not conditional.  If one did not fast due to some valid reason, or due to travelling, or due to an illness, or old-age or (Allah Forbid) if he left out the fast without a valid reason, then in all the said cases, the Sadaqa e Fitr is still Waajib.  [Raddul Muhtar]

Law:  If a person paid the Fitrah of his wife and his Baaligh children without their permission, it will be counted as being discharged, on condition that the children are from his Ay’yal.  In other words, the provisions etc. of those children are his responsibility.  Otherwise, it will not be regarded as discharged if he does so, on behalf of his children without their permission.  If the wife paid the Fitrah of her husband without his authority, it will not be discharged.  [Alamgiri vol.1 pg.193, Raddul Muhtar vol.2 pg.102/103 etc]

Pay your Zakaat and secure your Wealth

Pay your Zakaat and secure your Wealth

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

Abu Dawud report from Hasan Basri Radi Allahu anhu and Tabrani and Baihaqi have reported from a huge Jama’at of Sahaba-e-Kiraam Radi Allahu ta'aala Anhum that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Give your Zakaat and fortify your wealth in powerful fortresses, and treat your ill through Sadaqa, and when evil descends, then seek assistance in Dua (supplication) and lamentation.’

Law:  Making it Mubah (lawful) does not fulfil the Zakaat.  For example, if a Faqeer is fed some food with the Niyyat of Zakaat, the Zakaat has not been discharged, because in doing so the (condition) of making him the Maalik (Owner) is not existent.  If one gave him the food; in the sense that he may either eat it or take it with him, so in this case, it (Zakaat) has been discharged.  Similarly, if he gave (the Faqeer) a house to live in with the Niyyat of Zakaat, the Zakaat will not be discharged.  [Durr-e-Mukhtar vol.2 pg.3]

Law:  If one gave a Faqeer a house to live in, the Zakaat will not be discharged, because in doing so he has not given him any portion of the asset (i.e. in this case the property), but rather, he has simply made him the owner of the benefit.  [Durr-e-Mukhtar vol.2 pg.3]

Zakaat and its Rules and Regulations

Zakaat and its Rules and Regulations

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah
صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

Imam Ahmed reports from Asma bint Yazid on the merit of it being a Hasan narration, that she said, ‘my aunt and I presented ourselves before Nabi Kareem Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam, and we were wearing gold bangles (bracelets).  He Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam asked, ‘Have you paid its Zakaat?’  We said, ‘No’.  He Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Do you not fear that Almighty Allah will let you wear bangles of fire?  Pay its Zakaat!’’

Abu Dawud reported from Samurah bin Jundub that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam would command us to pay Zakaat for that which we have acquired for trade purposes.

Law:  If gold and silver have been mixed together, then in this case if the gold is more (in quantity), it will be regarded as gold.  Alternatively, if both are equal, and the gold reaches the standard Nisaab, either by itself or after being mixed with the silver, it will then still be regarded as gold.  If the (quantity of) silver is more, it will be regarded as silver, and if it reaches the Nisaab, Zakaat will be paid on it as silver.  However, if there is such an amount of gold in it which is more than the price (value) of the silver, then in this case, all of it will be counted as gold.  [Durr-e-Mukhtar, Raddul Muhtar vol.2 Pg.43]

Giving Sadaqa (Charity/Zakaat) does not lessen your wealth

Giving Sadaqa (Charity/Zakaat) does not lessen your wealth

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

Hazrat Abdullah ibn Mas’ud radi Allahu anhu says, ‘We have been commanded to perform Namaaz and give Zakaat, and the Namaaz of the one who does not pay his Zakaat, is not accepted.’

It is in Bukhari and Muslim from Abu Hurairah radi Allahu anhu that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Giving Sadaqa (Charity/Zakaat) does not lessen your wealth; and if a servant forgives the shortcomings of someone, Allah Almighty will increase his honour; and one who shows humility for the sake of Allah, Allah will exalt him (i.e. grant him Excellence and Respect).’

Hazrat Jaabir radi Allahu anhu reported that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Verily Allah has removed harm (evil) from the wealth of one who has paid his Zakaat.’

Law:  If a person is Maalik-e-Nisaab, and in the middle of the year (i.e. in the course of the year) he acquired something of the same type (i.e. the same type of commodity), then the year for the new goods is not counted as a separate year, but the end of the year of the initial goods (or cash etc.) is the same year ending for this as well, even if it was acquired one minute before the year ended, and it does not matter whether this asset was attained by means of the same initial asset, or whether it was acquired by way of inheritance, or as Hibah (a gift), or by way of some other permissible means.  However, if it is of a different type, for example initially he had camels and now he acquired goats, then he will count a new year for that.  [Jauhira]

Information on Zakat - Punishments for not paying Zakat

Information on Zakat - Punishments for not paying Zakat

Allah's Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful

As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool'Allah
صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

The month of Ramadaan has arrived. One of our obligations is to discharge our Zakaat correctly. I will share with you a few verses of the Holy Qur’an and some Ahadith which speak about the catastrophic result of not paying Zakaat. Not paying Zakaat is one of the main reasons for the failure of a business or for loss of money and goods. It is also very important to make sure that you give your Zakaat to the proper recipients and appoint righteous ones to utilise your Zakaat for proper Deeni Reasons. The following discussion should prompt us to think carefully about the importance of paying our Zakaat correctly, and the importance of giving it in proper hands.

Almighty Allah says,

‘You can never reach true virtue until you do not spend the things most cherished to you, in the way of Allah; And Allah is (All) Aware of all which you spend.’  [Surah Aal Imraan, Verse 92]

Allah Says,

‘And those who are miserly in that, which Allah has bestowed upon them by His Grace, should never regard this as good for them; but it is bad for them.  Soon, that in which they were miserly will become the noose around their necks on the Day of Qiyaamat.’  [Surah Aal Imran, Verse 180]

Hazrat Abu Hurairah mentions, ‘The wealth for which the Zakaat was not discharged will appear on the day of Qiyaamat in the form of a bald-headed snake.  It will chase (pursue) its owner and he will flee (from it), until he thrusts his fingers into its mouth.’ [Musnad Imam Ahmad] i.e. It will attack him viciously.

Hazrat Farooq-e-Azam Radi Allahu anhu reported that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘That wealth which is ruined in dryness and wetness, is ruined due to not discharging Zakaat.’ [Tabrani reported in Awsat]

Hazrat Buraidah Radi Allahu anhu reported that Rasoolullah Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Allah will afflict a nation who does not pay its Zakaat, with drought.’ [Tabrani reported in Awsat]

It is reported from Ahnaf bin Qais that Sayyiduna Abu Zarr Radi Allahu anhu said, ‘An intensely hot stone from the fire of hell will be placed on the tip of their breasts (i.e. those who shirk Zakaat), which will break through the chest and exit from the shoulder, and it will (then) be placed on the shoulder bone, causing it to break through the bones and exit from the chest.’ [Bukhari, Muslim]

It is also mentioned in Sahih Muslim Shareef, that (Abu Zarr Radi Allahu anhu) says, I heard Nabi Kareem Sall Allahu alaihi wa Sallam saying, ‘It will break through the backbone and exit from the side, and it will break through the nape and exit from the forehead.’

Law:  It is impermissible to give Zakaat to a Bud-Mazhab (deviants).  [Durr-e-Mukhtar Vol.2 Pg.96]  When this is the ruling concerning the Bud-Mazhabs, then what can be said about the wahabiya of this time, who commit blasphemy in the Court of Allah, and insult the station of the Beloved Rasool ﷺ and they even publish this.  They are those whom the Grand (Righteous) Ulama e Haramain Sharifain have unanimously decreed to be Kaafir (unbelievers) and Murtad (apostates), even though they may call themselves Muslims.  To give Zakaat to them is Haraam, and strictly Haraam, and if you did give it to them, then it has never been discharged at all.

I pray that this is not the case, but if any of us have not been paying our Zakaat or if we have been giving our Zakaat to the budmazhabs or through incorrect representation, read the above article many times over, and think about what will happen to us in our graves. If you are taking major losses in your successful business, go back and see if you have not gone wrong in your Zakaat or if you have paid it to bud-mazhabs.

Fast Breaking Alms ( Zakaatul Fitr Part 2)

Fast Breaking Alms ( Zakaatul Fitr Part 2)

 Allah has mandated the observation of fast breaking alms (Zakaatul fitr) at the end of Ramadan before Eid Prayer. Although this obligation was established by the Messenger (saas), it has the power of all the established commands of Al­lah, for the power to legislate and prescribe a rule has been granted to the Messenger of Allah, by Allah (SWT), Who states:

“He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah; but if any turn away, We have not sent thee to watch over their (evil) deeds.” (Al-Qur`an, 4:80)

Also, “If anyone contends with the Messenger, even after guidance has been plainly conveyed to him, and follows a path other than that becoming to men of faith...” (Al-Qur`an 4:115)

Also, “...So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you...” (Al-Qur`an, 59:7)

Eligibility

The giving of the fast breaking alms is mandatory on every Muslim, old, young, man and woman, etc. In a hadith related by Abdullah bin 'Umar (raa) he said: “The Messenger of Allah, has commanded the faster to observe Ramadan fast breaking alms, one Sa'a, (a beaker, a unit of measurement about two kilos and forty grams) of dates, on a bondsman, a freeman, on every
man and woman, young and old...”

This citation indicates that the eligible people who should give these alms, are virtually every living Muslim, provided he or she possesses more than the prescribed amount of provisions, in such a way that, after giving alms, there will remain enough food for him and his family for at least 24 hours.

However, there is no obligation of these alms on the unborn fetus, unless the parents or the guardian wants to give on its behalf voluntary alms. The Leader of the Faithful, `Umar (raa), gave for the unborn.

Thus, it is incumbent on every able believer to give for himself, and for those that he is responsible for; wife and children, and next of kin if they cannot give for themselves. If they can give, it is better that they do so, because every believer is com­manded to do so.
In the event that the person does not possess the amount, alms­giving is not mandatory. But, if he possesses half of the amount, it should be given.

Allah states: “So fear Allah as much as you can...” (Al-Qur`an 64:16)

And the Messenger of Allah said: “If I command you with something, do it as much as you
can.” (Agreed upon)

EXCELLENCE OF SPENDING AND GIVING SADAQA TO RELATIVES

EXCELLENCE OF SPENDING AND GIVING SADAQA TO RELATIVES

Anas reported that when this verse was revealed:" You will not attain righteousness till you give freely of what you love," Abu Talha said: I see that our Lord has demanded from us out of our property; so I make you a witness, Messenger of Allah. that I give my land known as Bairaha' for the sake of Allah. Upon this the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Give that to your relatives. So he gave it to Hassan b. Thabit and Ubayy b. Ka'b.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Zainab, the wife of 'Abdullah (b. Mas'ud ), reported that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: 0 women, give sadaqa even though it be some of your jewellery.

She returned to 'Abdullah and said: You are a person with empty hands, whereas the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) has commanded us to give sadaqa, so better go to him and ask and if this will suffice for me; otherwise I shall give it to someone else.

Abdullah said to me (his wife): You better go yourself.

So I went and there was another woman of the Ansar at the door of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) having the same porpose as I had. Now Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was invested with awe (so we did not like to knock).

Then Bilal came out and we said to him: Go to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) and inform him that there are two women at the door asking him whether it will serve them to give sadaqa to their spouses and to orphans who are under their charge, but do not inform him who we are.

Bilal went to the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) and asked him (what these women had instructed him to ask).

The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) asked him who these women were. He (Bilal) said: They are women from Ansar and Zainab. Upon this the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Which of the Zainabs? He said: The wife of 'Abdullah. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: There are two rewards for them, the reward of kinship and the reward of Sadaqa.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

A hadith like this has been narrated on the authority of Zainab the wife of 'Abdullah, and she said: I was in the mosque and the Prophet of Allah (may peace be upon him) saw me and said: Give Sadaqa even though it is out of your jewellery. The rest of the hadith is the same.
SIN OF ONE WHO DOES NOT PAY ZAKAT

SIN OF ONE WHO DOES NOT PAY ZAKAT

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (way peace be upon him) as saying: If any owner of gold or silver does not pay what is due on him, when the Day of Resurrection would come, plates of fire would be beaten out for him; these would then be heated in the fire of Hell and his sides, his forehead and his back would be cauterized with them. Whenever these cool down, (the process is) repeated during a day the extent of which would be fifty thousand years, until judgment is pronounced among servants, and he sees whether his path is to take him to Paradise or to Hell.

It was said: Messenger of Allah, what about the camel?

He (the Holy Prophet) said: If any owner of the camel does not pay what is due on him, and of his due in that (camel) is (also) to milk it on the day when it comes down to water. When the Day of Resurrection comes a soft sandy plain would be set for him, as extensive as possible, (he will find) that not a single young one is missing, and they will trample him with their hoofs and bite him with their mouths. As often as the first of them passes him, the last of them would be made to return during a day the extent of which would be fifty thousand years, until judgment is pronounced among servants and he sees whether his path is to take him to Paradise or to Hell.

It was (again) said: Messenger of Allah, what about cows (cattle) and sheep?

He said: It any owner of the cattle and sheep does not pay what is due on them, when the Day of Resurrection comes a soft sandy plain would be spread for them, he will find none of them missing, with twisted horns, without horns or with a broken horn, and they will gore him with their horns and trample him with their hoofs. As often as the first of them passes him the last of them would be made to return to him during a day the extent of which would be fifty thousand years, until judgment would be pronounced among the servants. And he would be shown his path-path leading him to Paradise or to Hell.

It was said: Messenger of Allah, what about the horse?

Upon this he said: The horses are of three types. To one than (these are) a burden, and to another man (these are) a covering, and still to another man (these are) a source of reward. The one for whom these are a burden is the person who rears them in order to show off, for vainglory and for opposing the Muslims; so they are a burden for him. The one for whom these are a covering is the person who rears them for the sake of Allah but does not forget the right of Allah concerning their backs and their necks, and so they are a covering for him. As for those which bring reward (these refer to) the person who rears them for the sake of Allah to be used for Muslims and he puts them in meadow and field. And whatever thing do these eat from that meadow and field would be recorded on his behalf as good deeds, as would also the amount of their dung and urine. And these would not break their halter and prance a course or two without having got recorded the amount of their hoof marks and their dung as a good deed on his behalf (on behalf of their owner). And their master does not bring them past a river from which they drink, though he did not intend to quench their thirst, but Allah would record for him the amount of what they drink on his behalf as deeds.

It was said: Messenger of Allah, what about the asses?

Upon this he said: Nothing has been revealed to me in regard to the asses (in particular) except this one verse of a comprehensive nature:" He who does an atom's weight of good will see it, and he who does an atom's weight of evil will see it"
