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
صلٰى الله عليه و سلم

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]

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)

What is Zakat (Charity) and What are its conditions?

What is Zakat (Charity) and What are its conditions?

Q1) What are the conditions of Zakaat's being compulsory?

A. There are some conditions of Zakaat's being compulsory i.e.
(1). To be Muslim. Zakaat is not compulsory on unbelievers.
(2). Mature. Zakaat is not compulsory on immature.
(3). Sane. Zakaat is not compulsory on a mad,insane if he remains in this condition for whole year. However, in case of occasional recovery, Zakaat is obligatory.
4). Free. Zakaat is not compulsory on a slave even though his master has permitted him to do business.
(5). One-must be owner of "Nisaab"
  •     He must possess 7.5 tolas of gold [one tola is equal to 11.664 grams] or more
  •     He must own 52.5 tolas of silver or more
(6). One must be full owner i.e. in possession of Zakatable income,commodities.
(7). Nisaab must be free from "Dain" (debt,liability).
(8). Nisaab must be free from "Haajat-e-Asleeyah" (necessary expenses).
(9). Goods, commodities must be "Naamee" i.e. which increases practically or otherwise and
(10). Completion of full one year on Nisaab.

Q 2: What is meant by Nisaab's being free of "Daien"?
A. It means that one is the owner of Nisaab but is in debt and if he pays off the debt he is no more solvent or he is guardian of any debtor and if clears the debt he is no more solvent (as the creditor can demand of him to defray). In such situations, there is no Zakaat due on him.

Q 3: What does "Haajat-e-Asleeyah" mean?
A. "Haajat-e-Asleeyah" means those things which are essential for life. For example, a house for one's or family use, cloths for summer and winter seasons, other family necessaries, domestic animals or animals for riding, implements of skilled workers, necessary books of students or of the learned, eatable items stored for one's or family use and money for necessary expenses. There is no Zakaat due on all such things,items.

Q 4: What is meant by "Naamee" assets?
A. There are two kinds of assets i.e. gold,silver which have intrinsic power to purchase things and those assets which are shorn of such potentials but are used to buy things. All assets other than gold and silver are "Naamee" as they will increase by business i.e. productive assets. Zakaat is quite compulsory on gold and silver if equal to Nisaab irrespective of personal use or business and even on buried gold and silver. And on other assets Zakaat will be due only when dealt in. So is the case with the animals - camels, cows, buffaloes, oxen, goats, sheeps, rams etc. which are left to graze in the grazing fields. The injunction of gold and silver is also applicable to the currency to this effect.

Q 5: Which year is meant by completion of full one year on Nisaab?
A. Completion of full one year on Nisaab means the lunar year i.e. on whichever date and time of Arabic (lunar) month one becomes solvent the very date and time of the Arabic month (next year) is Zakaat year for him regardless of the beginning of financial or income year. Zakaat will be due on the Nisaab one is in possession of at the outset and end of the Zakaat year. Any decrease in Nisaab during the year will not relieve him of the obligation i.e. Zakaat will remain due.

Q 6: Will Zakaat be due on merchandise which is exchanged for other thing during the year?
A. Exchange of merchandise or gold or silver for the same kind like jewellery or for the other kind during the Zakaat year will not remit Zakaat but it will remain due.

Q 7: How should a solvent person calculate Zakaat if his goods,commodities increase during the year?
A. If a solvent person gets some more goods, commodities of the same kind during the Zakaat year of his Nisaab even a minute before the end of the year he will have to pay Zakaat on the whole. There will be no separate year for the new goods,commodities.

Q 8: Is intention must for Zakaat like that of prayer?
A. Yes, it is must for one to form "Niyat" (intention) at the time of paying Zakaat or reserving cash, commodities for Zakaat. Forming Niyat means one could tell pat, if asked, that this cash or these commodities are of Zakaat. If one gave cash or commodities in charity off and on round the year and now he intends that whatever charity he has given during the year is Zakaat, his such Niyat will not be credible and Zakaat will not be deemed to have been paid. It must be kept in mind that "Ikhlaas" (sincerity of intention) is as much conditional as is the intention for paying Zakaat. Without "Ikhlaas", payment of Zakaat will be meaningless. "Ikhlaas" means what one pays as Zakaat must be with the sole and pure intention of Zakaat, fulfillment of obligatory act and carrying out the command of Allah Almighty sans any other intention which is repugnant to the payment of Zakaat.

Q 9: Will Zakaat be deemed to have been paid or not if cash,commodities set aside for Zakaat are lost?
A. One is not relieved of the obligation by setting aside cash,commodities for Zakaat unless he gives it to the beggar,indigent. Loss of such cash,commodities will not withhold the obligation. But in case of death the heirs of the deceased will inherit these things.

Q10. Should Zakaat be given openly or secretly?
A. It is commendable to give Zakaat openly but doling out "Nafil Sadaqah" (charity) secretly is commendable act. Distribution of Zakaat openly is preferred because the secret distribution may cause misgiving(s) against the recipient and people might slander him. A Hadees stresses the believers to shun the places where people are slandered. Besides, open doling out of Zakaat may also motivate others to fulfill the obligation. But the payer of Zakaat must guard against show which will eliminate the reward. Pomp and show is sinful act that may render him culpable for chastisement.

Q11. Is it must to inform the indigent,poor that the cash, commodities being given to him are Zakaat?
A. It is not must that the indigent,poor is told that the cash,commodities being given to him are Zakaat. Mere intention is sufficient. Even if one gives cash, commodities to the poor as gift or loan and his real intention is to pay Zakaat, Zakaat will be deemed to have been paid. Likewise, giving ash as "Nazar", "Hadyah" (present) or for chewing "Paan" (betel leaf) or for sweets of children or as "Eidee" (Eid gift) to the poor will relieve one of the obligation of Zakaat. Some indigent, poor people who really deserve Zakaat do not want to get Zakaat money,commodities. If they are given anything mentioning the name of Zakaat they will not receive it. Therefore, their self-respect should not be hurt by disclosing the name of Zakaat.

Q12. Is it lawful or not to pay Zakaat in advance?
A. A solvent person can pay Zakaat in advance even of some years. It is better for one to keep paying Zakaat in parts (instalments) throughout the year and on the close of the Zakaat year calculate it to know as to how much payment has been paid. If over-paid, deduct from the payment of next year and in case of underpayment, pay the residual amount of money, commodities immediately in whole not in parts as delay in paying Zakaat is not fair, permissible.


Q13: What is wrong with paying Zakaat in parts after the end of the year?

A. It is unfair,impermissible to pay Zakaat in parts after the close of Zakaat year. It must be paid immediately in whole, for, procrastination is sinful and the one who procrastinates is "Mardoodush Shahaadah" (the one whose evidence is not acceptable). Delay in payment of Zakaat involves many misfortunes and mishaps. For instance, if one dies before paying the due Zakaat he will be sinner and will have to face chastisement in the hereafter. Likewise, one may fall victim to any financial or physical accident. Besides, "Nafs" (self) can not be relied upon! One is intent to pay Zakaat today but may go back on it tomorrow under the deception of Satan. Those who keep the Zakaat money,commodities with themselves (after the close of Zakaat year) with the intention of giving it to the poor,beggar who come begging off and on or want to pay bit by bit finding it difficult to pay in whole at a time, should pay Zakaat in advance. By this they will not only achieve their objective but will also save themselves from the clutches of Shari'ah. If they want more reward of Zakaat then they should pay it in the holy month of Ramadaan in which the reward of "Nafil" (supererogatory, optional act) is raised to the level of "Fard"(obligatory act) and Fard's reward is increased seventy-fold.
