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,

00:00:48--> 00:00:53

Salama Tila, um what is the importance of Zika as mentioned in the Quran, in

00:00:54--> 00:01:00

the importance of Zakah in the Quran, and Hadith is explicit,

00:01:01--> 00:01:54

or an being the source of final revelation, it's the source of salvation. It's the last and final revelation from Allah subhanaw taala. It commands us to play soccer. So first of all, why it is important, because it is the command of Allah subhanaw taala. Secondly, it is the pillar of Islam, it is just not a command. It is a pillar of Islam that is the reason it is very important. Number three, it is important because of the benefits that we gain from it, people generally have an understanding that if you pay, it will be reduced, it will decrease your income. You see, if you have $100 and you pay $50, you will remain with 50 only. But Zakah is such a beautiful, I bought off

00:01:54--> 00:02:03

the last panel today it's a beautiful charity that is commanded by a las panatela that when you pay, you actually grow,

00:02:04--> 00:02:18

you actually grow because it is Allah subhanaw taala who is the provider of everything you might pay $50 at one time, and on the other way you might get $50,000

00:02:20--> 00:03:15

The other aspect of of Zakat, why it is important because it purifies your wealth. You see it is important because Islam is a way of life, that you need to earn halaal income, permissible income and your income will become purified, which means there will be a lot of Baraka a lot of blessings within the income that you have. Suppose you have $100,000 and you pays a car, the burqa the element of Baraka, the element of blessing that is there in your income will be way high than the one who might earn $200,000 and does not pay soccer. So Allah subhanaw taala, he provides us the growth in our income if we pay in he also purifies our income. Now soccer just does not purify the income. It

00:03:15--> 00:04:17

also helps us as an important feature of Zika it also helps us to purify our heart. Why is it important because it purifies our heart. You see, man wealth is one of the weakest point of of the people, right, the money is the most important criteria for the people, if he gives that to someone who is deserving, to get that, then his heart becomes pure. Why? Because he is foregoing, he is sacrificing, he is paying that which he loves the most. A person loves his income his money the most, but he is ready he is prepared to give away that for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So his heart gets purified. That is why Zika is also important. Zakah is also important because it is a an

00:04:17--> 00:04:32

economic responsibility that every eligible Muslim has upon other people. It prevents you to become a selfish, if I have income if I have money if I have wealth, and others don't have

00:04:33--> 00:05:00

and if I don't give them I live a life of a selfish person. Islam This allows a person to be selfish. Islam says as mentioned in the Quran, that the well that Allah subhanaw taala provided you It must not just circulate among the rich. And this is the problem that we are facing. Though the richer is becoming more richer. The poor is becoming

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

More poorer. So, there is a clear and obvious imbalance of economic system in the world. czaka basically helps a person, a society, a country, a state to establish economic balance in their place. That is how important Zakah is that it becomes a tool or resource to establish economic justice.

00:05:30--> 00:06:12

That just just cannot be done. If a person is rich and does not pay others. What we need to also realize is what all we have it belongs to Allah subhanaw taala it comes from Allah so Allah commands what he has given to us to share it with others. Soccer is important because it develops the quality of training. You see if I have $100 I'll pay $2 to my other brother, Muslim, who does not have money, who does not have the substance. So these are the ways that we can understand and realize why zaca the pillar of Islam is important. Hope that answers
