Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters, how do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him like to know is he just compulsory for him, somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.
Brother, can you tell us some of the benefits of giving
the benefits of giving zakka are immense. If you see from the spiritual point of view zakka basically, as we mentioned, it takes you closer to Allah subhanaw taala. Because you grow spiritually, you purify yourself spiritually, you get closer to a lost penalty, because you follow and obey the command of Allah subhanaw taala. This is a spiritual benefit. This is a benefit which means or which should mean a lot to a believer. For him, the most pleasurable moment of his life should be that he should get closer to Allah subhanaw taala, he should be near to Allah subhanaw taala. And that's the effort that every Muslim every believer has to put. So he gets a spiritual
benefit, that he actually gains that momentum, that nearness to Allah subhanaw taala. Also, in this world, he will also have the benefit in his materialistic sense, as we have said, Who is the owner of the treasures, who owns the world, who owns the resources, who owns this money, who owns this rope, who owns this property, who owns the everything in the world, Allah, Allah owns everything. So when you commit, when you obey the command of Allah pantalla, you will see a materialistic growth as well. And economic growth as well, in your income, that it gets either increase, or they'll be a lot of burka, you get so surprised that you have only $100 to spend a week. But you will get so much
Baraka in that, that you are internally satisfied. You see, why do we own to satisfy ourselves and Allah subhanho wa Taala satisfied satisfies you, if you pays a car, and that satisfaction means a lot to us, a person might pay a billion dollar or million dollar, he will not get that satisfaction, if he pays any fee, even if he has less, he will be convinced with that, he will be absolutely satisfied with that. So he will gain in this dunya as well. The economic benefit from observing the command of Allah subhanaw taala to pay Sokka number three, as a responsible human being as a representative of Allah subhanaw taala, when you pays a car, you actually set up the system of
economic justice, which is lost almost here. That's the reason we are listening, we are hearing and we are facing credit crisis, credit crunch, economic imbalance, and so on and so forth. The people economists are in huge struggle in order to make economic balance in this world. But they would never be able to do that, if they don't follow the system prescribed by the Creator in this world.
The benefit that we gain if we pays a car, if we obey the commands of Allah subhanaw taala by beings occur is that we actually set up the system of economic justice, which is the actual essence of
the purpose of Zakah where in the society must be economically balanced, it should not be that only rich are living and the poor are suffering, it should be balanced. If riches are there, then they should be poor, but they should be served by these rich people, because they will gain what Allah subhanaw taala has given them. So these are the benefits that a person gains spiritually, he will gain emotionally he will gain physically he will gain economically. You see. So these are there is no act
The House of Islam which does not bring benefit, all these benefits are only
those benefits which comes from Allah subhanaw taala. And all these acts are commanded by a las panatela. So obviously, when Allah commands something, it is the benefit for the whole of humanity and it is the Act, which is engaging with all your society. It's not an individual act that you do. So these are the benefits that you actually get when you observe or when you pay or when you obey the commands of Allah subhanaw taala by paying Zakat of their ancestors
