Is it better to give my Xikar in the month of Ramadan?
First things first, when a full history Islamic year has passed and the Xikar becomes due, it must be paint, unless it is this account of course of agricultural crops, which has to be paid on the day of harvesting because Allah Almighty said to hacker who Yamaha salty he paid to you on the day of the harvest. Putting that aside for a moment, it is not permissible to delay the paying of Zika after it has become due, unless you have a valid excuse. Although it's permissible to pay this account before it is due, by way of hastening it. It was narrated from Ali Robley Allahu anhu, that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked Allah bass to pay the cat two years in
advance, so that's okay. Secondly, it is true that giving charity in Ramadan
is better than doing so in any other month. If not best, he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most generous of people. And he was the most generous during Ramadan when you believe would meet him to teach him the Quran. So if a person is that care is due in Ramadan, or it's due after Ramadan, but he or she pays in advance during Ramadan, in order to make the most of the virtue of paying it in Ramadan, then there's nothing wrong with that. But if you're Zika is due before Ramadan, say in the month of Rajab and then you delay it, so that you pay it in the Ramadan for the virtue in that case is not permissible, because you have delayed the cat from when it needs
to be given.
Unless of course, as I said, there is a valid excuse. Thirdly, there may be some reasons why pays a cat at a time other than Ramadan may be more virtuous than paying in Ramadan.
such as for example, if there is a major disaster or famine in some Muslim country, in this case, paying it at a time other than Ramadan is preferable.
