Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah but a cat. To me the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all. I'm Abdullah oduro. And welcome back. Where should one pays a cat

00:00:15--> 00:00:57

there is no particular place where one should pay as a cat in Islam, there is no particular holy place or area where one should pay as a cat. But primarily, it is important to know in your local area, if there are any organization, any organizations that take the cat money, or generally it is your local Masjid, that may take any general funds, you will see when you walk in the mosque, you'll see slots you'll see like a, you know, say soda color and then it'll say maybe Masjid project, then it will see one that says the cat ZK 18 that's where you can pay your zakat. And that's when the lunar year passes, you have that amount of money as we mentioned with gold, you can just go and put

00:00:57--> 00:01:34

the money in the slot no one has to know. And it's even better that no one knows. And as a side point, if you want to give it to the individual personally, this is preferable. The person that you're giving the cat to does not have to know that it's a cat, the individual can be a family member that is in need. So if you have family members that are in need, this is a great way for you to give Dawa and to let them know that you are a changed person. And that this money that you have received, you've changed your life. You've come into Islam, and you've received money now because you have a career or that you've had structure in your life which has Mashallah Allah has provided

00:01:34--> 00:02:09

you financially you can take from that money and give to those needy family members not displaying to them that I have to do this. Rather it is something that I love to do, because I want to help you. So where one gives a cat is not as much as a priority as opposed to when and what is the cattle in who are the cat recipients? May Allah subhanho wa Taala make use of those individuals that give us a cat on time, and may He make use of those that are diligent, and remember that this is a means of coming close to a low to other assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Thank you
