There's a question that does a single mom

00:00:02 --> 00:00:03

mother with 2 children

00:00:04 --> 00:00:06

who is in debt to to the family,

00:00:08 --> 00:00:09

fall into the category

00:00:09 --> 00:00:11

00:00:11 --> 00:00:11

since

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

so

00:00:16 --> 00:00:16

basically

00:00:17 --> 00:00:19

may Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala grant her facilitation.

00:00:20 --> 00:00:22

A person is eligible for zakat if

00:00:26 --> 00:00:27

they if

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

upon deducting

00:00:28 --> 00:00:31

00:00:31 --> 00:00:32

and

00:00:33 --> 00:00:33

your

00:00:35 --> 00:00:37

debts that are due, you don't have enough

00:00:38 --> 00:00:38

to

00:00:39 --> 00:00:40

you don't have enough

00:00:41 --> 00:00:44

to cover the nisaab, the zakatibil minimum,

00:00:45 --> 00:00:47

which you can see online that what is

00:00:47 --> 00:00:49

the gold nisaab.

00:00:49 --> 00:00:50

Right? So someone,

00:00:51 --> 00:00:54

if you account for your immediate expenses

00:00:54 --> 00:00:55

and your

00:00:57 --> 00:00:59

upcoming debt payments, the next month of debt

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

payments, if you consider these two things and

00:01:01 --> 00:01:04

you don't have the zakat double minimum, then

00:01:04 --> 00:01:05

you are eligible for zakat.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

It is recommended to take the means not

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

to be in need.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:14

It's recommended

00:01:15 --> 00:01:16

to take the means not to be in

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

need. Right?

00:01:18 --> 00:01:21

Whoever we are, if to the extent facilitate.

00:01:21 --> 00:01:24

But if despite that, one is not able

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

to cover, then

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

charity is is mercy and facilitation.
