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.
For the people required to give Zika and eligible to receive Zika. Right. Now, there are two aspects of this question one, the one who is eligible to pay, not every Muslim has to pay soccer, we need to understand this fact, not every Muslim, individual Muslim has to pay soccer. Only those people who are financially stable, who are above the nisab level, who have a minimum of their wealth of their savings, be it in cash or kind, they are eligible to pay,
they are being commanded to pay. And a person has to check their own economic balance, their own financial stability, in terms of understanding whether he fits in this criteria in this eligibility or not. Every single individual has to study his own and see how much savings that he has every single year. And he has to perfectly count that and pay. So those people who have got the savings beyond or above the nisab level, they are eligible to pay Zakah. Now the second part on the aspect who are eligible to receive zakka now this is really, really very important. You can't give the car to whomever you want. When you do any bother any act of worship to Allah subhanaw taala as we
discussed, it should be done in the way of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon us. And Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him through the teachings of the Quran. And through his examples. He has taught us that there are nine kinds or categories of people that are mentioned in the Quran very clearly, who deserves to receive xhaka. And that nine category of people are mentioned in Surah, tauba surah, number nine, and number 16, in which when you list out these kinds of people who are eligible to receive Zakat, for example, sakara, the poor people who are not destitute, who are not extremely poor, but who are poor in general, who does not have the income beyond the sub level. So they are
also eligible to receive your soccer, number one, number two, the purse, the people who are masakan, which means absolutely poor, you call it destitute, those who are extremely poor, they are eligible to receive Zakah, the people the third category of people who are traveling and who take and collect xhaka, these people are also eligible to receive Zika, because they have invested their time, their efforts, their energy in collecting Zika in collecting these occur from the people. So this kind of people or category of people are also eligible to receive Zika.
Another kind of people are those who are the traveler, and back home, he might have the money, but he's a traveler, he becomes dependent on the Muslims. So Muslims have this economic responsibility towards each other. So he has to pay he can pay Zakah to this kind of people as well, whom he feels that they are genuine and eligible to receive Sokka also those people who whose hearts are inclined towards the truth towards Islam. And this we see those people who are very close to Islam, but they are very poor. You can adopt this kind of data as well, that you pay them. You pay them so that they get closer to Islam. They may understand that Islam is a total balanced, economically balanced way
of life. So when you
that you pay to these kind of people, obviously, they get closer to Islam. And when you pay them, tell them why you're paying because you're being commanded. And these kind of people are one of the categories of people who deserves to receive Zakah. So many more other kinds of people who are required to receive Zakat that is mentioned very clearly in Surah, tauba, surah, number nine, and number 60. These kinds of other categories of people who are eligible to receive Zakah and these kind of people are those people who actually deserves you see Allah subhanaw taala is an Hakim, he is the most wise he knows who deserves to get that he knows who is eligible to give that. So he has
given these criterias very clearly who is eligible to play soccer and who is eligible to receive soccer so that the economic balance the economic justice, which is almost lost in the current time can be established.
