REMEMBER TO PAY YOUR FITRAH

REMEMBER TO PAY YOUR FITRAH

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

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.
