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]
