00:00:06--> 00:00:07

To proceed

00:00:08--> 00:00:14

now, the chapter on who may receive the cash register for security Lee

00:00:16--> 00:00:31

Kodama, Kamala said it was not the our eight categories of people, eight categories of people. There is one I am sort of the Toba that actually mentions the eight categories of eligible recipients of

00:00:34--> 00:01:03

kenema SOHCAHTOA. Pokhara masa Kini, la Molina, Allah. Allah Allah to coloboma for copy over Amina is a bit Illa weapon in Seville freedom in Allah. Allah wa de mon Hakeem nama sakaki fukuhara on Misaki what Amina La la la fecha coloboma, Federica Mogherini of Isabella weapon is be Fareed Amidala Allahu Allah de mon Hakeem

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

this ayah says here

00:01:11--> 00:01:37

mentions all the different types, where the development of Kodama will do here is basically shed some light on some of the regulations, technicalities that pertain to the eight different types of eligible recipients of zakat. He starts by saying, hello world for cara, the first eligible category of recipients is alpha cara,

00:01:39--> 00:01:45

poor people. He says what do you do in America among Korean men give at him because be whatever

00:01:46--> 00:01:58

they are those who cannot afford, what they need, whether it's through earnings, or otherwise, they just can't afford what they need. They can't afford anything. They're just like, really, really

00:01:59--> 00:02:45

poor, lacking of means there's a vokra That's why I lost started by them. They disagree over the Quran. Misaki who is poorer than who the majority certificado are poorer than the Misaki because Allah subhanaw taala one of the proofs they mentioned, is that the Prophet use the ask Allah to live as a miskeen and so on, but at the same time he used to seek refuge in Allah from fuck so miskeen is someone who's barely making it and sometimes he's short on you know, but the appeal is the one who doesn't have anything. So, the property is asked a lot delivers on the skin and 1000s of years directly within the psyche and and he used to seek refuge and a lot from poverty the use of the use

00:02:45--> 00:02:54

also the ion sort of gaff in which father said to Musa alayhis salam Rahman Safina to mechanically Misaki. Now Medina footbaww

00:02:55--> 00:03:29

for up to an eyebrow camera, medically bucola Safina in hospital. As for the ship, it used to belong to Mr. Keane, who used to like work on in sea. So I wanted to make a defect in it, because there was a kink behind them that was taken every ship. So I wanted to make it look defective to the king, so that he does not seize it from the so the fact that the ownership does not preclude them from being called the Misaki. The fact that the ownership does not preclude them from being called Masaki.

00:03:31--> 00:03:46

Therefore Misaki are not as poor as the Pokhara and that is the position that's chosen by the ham bellies and the majority for Cora would be poorer than the Misaki then he said was Danny and Misaki Norma la Vina

00:03:47--> 00:04:18

yagoona Valley Kuala junetta Memory Cafe. The second type is the needy, they are those who can afford the sum of their needs, but not all, they can afford some of their needs, but not all, let's say if appear is the one who gets like a monthly allowance or salary. That would be good for two three days. And the year the miskeen is the one who gets a monthly salary that would be good for about 25 days 27 days and then he has run out.

00:04:21--> 00:04:51

So that is the for pyramid scheme. In the hanafy method method. As we said before, you're not a pyramid scheme or if you have done asabe which was a cat koloff does a cat threshold. If you use silver it would be around $600 if you use gold that would be around 3000 or a little bit more than $3,000 the madikwe sapphires and and baddies said that you could still be a Peter miskeen while having this money or even more.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

If it does not remember what even said, you know, you could have like, herds of sheep

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

And cameras and so on and still be miskeen because whatever you have is not sufficient for your reasonable

00:05:09--> 00:05:15

lifestyle, the reasonable lifestyle is determined by your socioeconomic class your

00:05:16--> 00:05:29

neighborhood this this. So, whenever if if your means, do not suffice your reasonable lifestyle, then you are considering the miskeen how to humara

00:05:30--> 00:05:39

enabling him or her to attribute it to armor that he said, Give them even if they have the table, you know, go by them

00:05:41--> 00:05:50

you know, scores available go by the meaning that the owner love the owner laugh candles, so, so here

00:05:51--> 00:05:58

for beer and miskeen for beer is the one who does not afford anything. miskeen is the one who, you know, forwards like

00:06:00--> 00:06:17

most of his needs, but not all of his needs, you can have the cap threshold or more than the scout threshold, according to the majority and still considered needy, you know, someone who is who has like money and you know, can actually feed his kids, but maybe he can

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

send them to school.

00:06:22--> 00:07:04

Now, if you say, you know, I'll take money to send my kids to college, that would be everybody, everybody needs money to send their kids to college. So that would not be to say someone who is unable to send his kids to school, or unable to send his kids to on Islamic school. And there is, you know, he fears for his kids, if he does not send them to an Islamic school that or he actually encountered difficulties, he already encountered problems with his kids not being an Islamic school. And he wants to pull them out, send them to an Islamic school. And he makes like a reasonable decent salary. But he's still unable to send this two or three kids that Islamic school is he miski. And

00:07:04--> 00:07:09

yes, according to the Hon buddies, it will, he will be Minsky

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

and according to the majority is Minsky

00:07:14--> 00:07:17

aztalan salami Luna LA, Casa de

00:07:18--> 00:07:45

la he woman you're here. The third type is the cat collectors, they are the people who collected and those who are needed for its collection called worker workers hired by the ASIC administration, in other words, and those people will take whatever, whatever compensation that suits their expertise. So you could be taking, like a,

00:07:46--> 00:07:51

like an annual salary of $300,000, from years of fun.

00:07:53--> 00:08:10

And I'm not saying to people to do that. But say, you really found like you have like a big organization. And you are you want some someone intelligent, educated as like a PhD in business administration or system management, whatever the

00:08:11--> 00:08:13

new names are for this stuff.

00:08:14--> 00:08:23

And then you want to get a like a grab a CEO from a different company, you think that a CEO from a different company would really do a good job.

00:08:25--> 00:08:34

for that organization, you could actually give them an annual salary of $300,000 from those account funds. Because

00:08:35--> 00:09:03

they are given the compensation that suits their expertise, it is a salary for them, it is not like they're given as a cap, they're given as a cap to be able to collect it and dispenses appropriately, particularly if you take in consideration the position of the people who said that the cap could be invested. And that is the position of Muslim African Islami the table masama though I see Islamic International Islamic

00:09:05--> 00:09:19

Academy, that may be invested after fulfilling the needs, you know, the symposium on Zika, the second symposium and set the conditions for his account to be invested is that to fulfill the immediate needs of the poor people.

00:09:21--> 00:09:28

People are investing in safe investments, the investment will be easily liquidated if the need arises,

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

you know, for people needed the money than the money could be quickly liquidated. And we serve as a safe investment, trustworthy people that are designated by the authorities to make that investment. Now, this is a very controversial issue. But what I you know, I'm not taking sides here, but I'm just telling you that there are a lot of contemporary Muslim scholars who said that there's a cap may be invested for an ongoing profit

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

Support while the deserving recipients long term.

00:10:07--> 00:10:53

And in this case, the second this is I got administration that will be also in charge of investment, the people who would run it, that they may be the, you know, you may need people that are extremely competent and qualified. And in this case, you will give them from this account money, whatever suits is commensurate with their expertise, it depends on their CV, it does not depend on their need. It's not like you're going to interview them in the in the in the interview, tell them how many kids do you have, you know, and Does your wife work? And so on. And to figure out their needs know, you will look at, you know, their CV and their degrees and their previous compensation from

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

the previous company that is working on silver square.

00:10:58--> 00:11:45

Okay. And so the people who run this kind of organizations, nowaday, whether it's the cat, this cat, that Islamic Relief, they can take from this money, certainly the overhead has to be reasonable, so that, you know, people don't lose trust in those organizations has to be reasonable and transparent transparency, and reason. These are the two qualities or two criteria that they must satisfy. So people don't lose trust in those organizations. But yes, those people who work in those organizations around those organizations do deserve to take money based on their expertise from those account funds. Otherwise, we will not find people to administer the collection and

00:11:45--> 00:12:32

distribution of those accounts competently, if we don't do that. Then the next one, he said we're Robin wonderful to kulu Masada motorhome fers at him, Allah denio Java Team islaam def Ansari m alcova to Imani him our therefore humanoid muslimeen our winner tomorrow after this academy man, Antonio home in the fire. The forest type consists of those whose hearts may be reconciled or to be reconciled. They are the authorities within their tribes whose conversion to Islam is hold, and those whose evil may be evaded. Or faith may be strengthened by giving them as a cat or it is hoped to prevent them from harming Muslims, or who may help Muslims collected as a guard from those who

00:12:32--> 00:13:03

are withholding it. So those people whose hearts are to be reconciled The only medic is 100, Betty said the Cat could be given to non Muslims whose hearts are to be reconciled all of them Maggie's honeyberries hana fees and Sharpies they say those whose are starting to be reconciled, applies the Muslims who live out the borders, we could we could be considered because Muslim minorities outside of the mainland of Islam could be considered more equitable.

00:13:05--> 00:13:21

Because you want to strengthen their face, Muslim, they also said Muslims that live at the borders of the Muslim state, you want to strengthen their faith they have exposure to non Muslims and they also protect the borders and things of that nature. So

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

it is true.

00:13:27--> 00:13:39

So the these are, these are by agreements, wonderful Padovan, the hearts are to be reconciled. We are afraid for their face, and we want to strengthen it. So new Muslims

00:13:40--> 00:13:52

and Muslims that are you know that they've the borders and things of that nature, they agreed that those people are, are to be sort of reconcile.

00:13:54--> 00:14:01

By the way, when it comes to the new Muslims, the idea of I don't use, I don't use converts, because someone who converted 15 years ago

00:14:02--> 00:14:08

is not any different from any Muslim. That's why I don't believe in the word converts per se or revert per se.

00:14:09--> 00:14:14

If you need like a term, a term to identify the needs of

00:14:15--> 00:14:32

new people that join newcomers just call them new Muslims and then after 25 years, why do you need a designation for them? Why do you need a qualifier for them after 25 years from being Muslims? Keep saying Converse, you know 25 years, you know,

00:14:33--> 00:14:49

the knees and they've been Muslim for 40 years. You don't need a designation for them. You don't need to tailor or customize any programs for their needs. But new Muslims Yes. And that is basically the way of the Prophet and the companions they have any words for convert.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

No. What did they use the who called people ask them they basically became Muslim accepted Islam they never said converted they said Aslam.

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

I

00:15:01--> 00:15:21

became Muslim. And then when he used the one that when there was a need to describe a particular phase of their, as them, they said how they didn't because they just move, you know, how does that mean? It means bottom line means new Muslims. They're new and Islam. And so I have them because they were recently non Muslims.

00:15:22--> 00:16:11

So, so that's it. But anyway, so in general, people that need to be their face need to be strengthened. Are people that should be given from the Zika? Does this applies to non Muslims, the Hannah and Belize and medic, he said, yes, it applies to non Muslims, and it will never be abrogated. And the Prophet says, I'm set to give money to non Muslims reconcile their hearts and it will never be abrogated as a marriage. He said he never did. And they argued about whether he did give them from visit cap money. Remember when he first said no, he did. But Homer then suspended that ruling, but almost suspended that ruling. Why? Because Omar did not feel the need to reconcile

00:16:11--> 00:16:20

anyone's heart he was able to record sort of the sort of, you know, he did not need to reconcile people's hearts he was like,

00:16:21--> 00:16:25

No, he Yeah, he was too powerful to need to reconcile anybody's heart

00:16:29--> 00:16:38

is so he did not need to reconcile people's hard get through money or charity, or gifts

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

of reconciliation.

00:16:42--> 00:16:47

Certainly, he was he, by the way, it was extremely merciful, kind and gentle

00:16:49--> 00:17:03

and affectionate, extremely, you know, but but he would do it this way, affectionately, compassionately. And if you don't behave, he would also be able to you know, do the other way to make you behave.

00:17:06--> 00:17:11

So, the hammer he sets in Samarra suspended it It continues to be suspended.

00:17:12--> 00:17:58

And ematic is a hammer and he said this is ongoing whenever we have circumstances that would require this then it is valid a valid concept to give the and the honeyberries are the most detailed, in fact, when it comes to the different types of non Muslims who will be deserving of the cat. So in in the Hanbury according to embedded principles, can you give us a cap to political campaigns? Absolutely, because these are the people that you want that that would be most capable of benefiting the community or protecting the community from harm. So it could be but having said that, the people who will do this because I love Apollo boom.

00:18:00--> 00:18:03

You cannot write a check to a political campaign from your cap money.

00:18:04--> 00:18:55

Because I love Apollo boom as a category as a category. We're not given money by individual Muslims individually as a cap givers contributors. It was the man who decided where that money goes. Therefore, at least if we don't have an Imam, we have organizations, you know, legitimate legitimate organizations, legitimate credible organizations, that we give them this money and they decide how to dispense of this money, how to dispense of this account money, but it is not for individual Muslims to make the decision. And this is bikin agreement of the forum as I have my love Apollo boom, to give to Mr. Love Apollo boom is not the prerogative of individuals. It is the prerogative

00:18:55--> 00:18:59

of the of the community. Now the community does not have the such

00:19:03--> 00:19:11

authorities. But but the organizations that collected his account should be entrusted with dispensing those accounts in

00:19:12--> 00:19:27

to those various categories, not individuals. But if you want to contribute to political campaigns, that's fine. You know, if you want as an individual to contribute to political campaigns from that your charity,

00:19:28--> 00:19:53

like your sadhaka or like a gift that is absolutely fine. But when it comes to the Zika, it is better that you give this a cap to the people that are clearly deserving recipients eligible deserving recipients that could receive money directly from individuals such as Cora and Misaki and those who are in that have been in Serbia the wayfare and so on.

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

But

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

not

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Those whose hearts are to be reconciled.

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

Some people are uncomfortable.

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

you're uncomfortable in the back

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

that fellow in the very corner.

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

That is, that is why you have to give it to credible, credible, legitimate organizations.

00:20:35--> 00:20:44

And then organizations over time develop a good or bad reputation, depending on the prudence or imprudence of their

00:20:46--> 00:21:05

basically administration of this account. As you know, at the end of the day we have, you also have to be pragmatic, you also have to deal with variability, you're going to have to trust the some people, the most trustworthy people, you trust them, until you find more trustworthy people to give them

00:21:06--> 00:21:19

the most trustworthy people that you have, because that idea that, you know, that paranoid idea that I don't trust any Muslim organizations, and I don't think it is, it is purely,

00:21:20--> 00:21:38

purely, has chauvinistic, egotistic arrogant attitude. Because you would only trust the organization that you are the head of your only trust, you will only trust the message that you are both the president and a member of.

00:21:39--> 00:21:53

But if you're the president, the message could be messed up because of the man. And if you're the man, the message is all messed up because of the President. But if you are the president than the man, then hopefully, you will not blame the mess on the congregation.

00:21:54--> 00:22:38

Because you could at the end of the day, you know, so we have to trust those people and they have to make the proper decisions and proper decisions means maybe that's what he wanted to point out. You know, proper decision means that the fukada and Ms. Akina are the most deserving. In fact, the economists again are the only ones that have been mentioned in the hadith of Mars falaknuma, longstone, dalim, Sokka tokens and evernia in for terracotta, and let them know that Allah made obligatory on them, a charity that will be taken from the rich and given to the poor, and many hobbies, the talk about South Africa, talk about it. Again, the eight categories are basically

00:22:40--> 00:23:04

when it comes to priorities for a second also came as the first two categories in the Quran. And Allah subhanaw taala made them two categories even though they are one category poor people, but Allah made them two categories started with them to say the emphasis should be on those people who are lacking the the, you know, the means support themselves, or have insufficient means

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

for their own support for Cara and Misaki.

00:23:10--> 00:23:28

You know, now, so they get the first like priority, but then again, at the same time, there are different interests of the Muslim community that have to be actualized. And we have to trust the leaders of the community to make those decisions and hope that they make the proper decisions.

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

This ambiguous nation

00:23:32--> 00:23:32

okay.

00:23:38--> 00:24:02

No, there is no proportion email Mr. Ferrell used to say that you have to give the eight categories in equal proportions. The majority said you don't have to give it you can just give all of yours account to one person, one category, one person or you could divide the 100. He said that is preferred that you divided among the eight categories, but they also allowed you to give it to one category or one person.

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

Well, yeah, come on. Then he said.

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

So then who said that could be non Muslims,

00:24:13--> 00:24:33

berries and Maliki's who said they cannot be canopies and Sharpies and berries and medic, he still said that who who is going to do this for us? The leaders of the community that credible you know, leaders of the community are the ones who are going to determine how to spend the money in this category.

00:24:34--> 00:24:47

Then, the certainly when it comes to sadaqa charity as an individual you could you could give your charity to anyone Muslim or non Muslim. every living

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

creature as deserving of your kindness. Certainly humanity is most deserving of your kind kindness. People are most deserving of your kindness whether they are Muslim, or non Muslim, you could certainly go

00:25:00--> 00:25:41

Go ahead and give but when it comes to the obligatory is a car because this is part of a system that is meant to basically work within the oma a system that is meant to work for the oma within the home. If those people will have this obligation on them when they are rich, then they have this right when they are poor, because rights and obligations if this is a wedge upon them when they are rich, it is their right when they are poor, within the Ummah below. So this is basically the fact that we are not giving Zakat to non Muslims unless they are of the of the category of those whose hearts are to be reconciled, does not mean lack of kindness. Absolutely not. Because you're

00:25:41--> 00:26:01

encouraged to give them from yourself or confirm your charity. But when it comes to this obligatory system of charity, you're giving it to the people who will be obliged to pay it when they're rich. You're giving it to them when they're poor, because they are obliged to pay it when they're rich. This is basically a system that is

00:26:03--> 00:26:03

that is

00:26:04--> 00:26:08

sort of consistent system.

00:26:09--> 00:26:36

The fifth type he said that harm is a remarkable human Makati boon Well Dr. Rocky the fifth pipe consists of slaves and captives who are identity indentured indentured servants and for freeing slaves so the summer you know they extrapolate for extrapolate from this and they said and in somebody's mouth have also affected as here basically a release the captive, okay.

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

I actually included here, slaves and captives.

00:26:45--> 00:26:53

This is this honest because this is actually that's not the honest translation it only says repub, which would honestly mean

00:26:54--> 00:27:06

slaves. But since the in the Hanbury madhhab. It includes the captives. I also added the captives. So, but you know, it is correct somebody wise it is correct, but it is not the exact translation.

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

So it is the slaves and captives

00:27:13--> 00:27:18

that you basically elaborate or release using that money.

00:27:19--> 00:27:42

Number six is the McQuarrie moon six is the moon, a woman Medina is not in a full CMP MOBA. How will Islam benefit entertaining million Muslims in the sixth type includes those in that they are the debtors who borrowed money for themselves to pay for permissible things, or to reconcile to Muslim parties. So guardi mode,

00:27:44--> 00:27:57

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to kabisa in the this is not permissible except for Roger Min thalassa, one of three men, Roger and Pamela hemella, fidenza, Allah, Allah,

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

for jazak Allahu Allah,

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

Muhammad homina masala, Hatha Yoga, a man who took on a responsibility to call himself the responsibility basically, to fighting to disputants people to dispute and business partners. You came in and you said to them, what are you guys are disagreeing over the E value $50,000? And you say it on me? You know, don't worry about it. You don't have to argue.

00:28:30--> 00:28:34

You don't have to fight. And that would be a noble way no one is doing this anymore.

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

Everyone's doing it. Some people don't

00:28:40--> 00:29:07

know it, what do you say it's army, you are actually willing to take this on you, you know, here, take your money, take your money, I'll pay so that this is basically to reconcile, right, you know, settle a dispute conflict resolution. If so, the hammer Hamada, in this way took a responsibility on himself to reconcile they said that a conflict between two parties or three individuals, but because he did this,

00:29:08--> 00:29:27

he did this, we as a community should, you know, pat him on the shoulder and say to him, You did a good job, we will help you out. Even though you are rich, we will help you out. You don't have to be poor for this to be helped out. Because you did such a good job. We will help you out we'll pay with you.

00:29:28--> 00:29:52

Or we will share some of that responsibility. And that is the basically the person who incur the debt for like, like this noble cause of settling disputes between two parties. But then what about the one who incurred the debt for their own benefit for their own interest if this debt was incurred for haram?

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

haram and you did not repent? We don't pay you. If it is incurred before MOBA something

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

permissable we pay you

00:30:04--> 00:30:26

even if that debt was incurred for something that is not a necessity not essential. So you incur that, that, you know for something that is not essential, that is not a necessity. But now it is overwhelming to you, you're unable to pay it off, and then we pay you so that we relieve you from the distress of debt relieve you from the distress of debt.

00:30:27--> 00:31:17

Now, if you incur the debt for something that is harder, you know, really harder. But now you are indebted and you already repented, should we pay you the Hungary say, yes, pay him, even though that was originally incurred to pay for this haram thing. But the guy who repented or the lady repent? Why Why should? Why should you not relieve them from the distress of that when they already repented? So if they repented, you pay them, you pay on their behalf? Now when it comes to that, in particular, can you go to the creditor and pay them without even asking the debtor? Because the one of the conditions of his account to be valid is called the league which is transfer of ownership.

00:31:17--> 00:31:41

transfer of ownership is particularly important for the first four types for Cara Misaki saqqaq collectors and Liverpool boom, those whose hearts are to be reconciled? Because the answer is this little camera when Misaki Lee to you know, so transfer of ownership. But when the Quran mentions the other four types, the Quran says what,

00:31:43--> 00:32:28

what Federica what fee not Lee will Federica in a cop will Academy and those who are in the office of Isla Vista be the cause of Allah subhanaw taala and the wayfare which means what it is not transfer of ownership, it is for this particular purpose, particular purpose, what is the purpose, you know, released from captivity, emancipation, that's the purpose. So you don't have to give the money to the person, you just pay the money, emancipate them release them from captivity, while they mean, those who are in debt, you don't have to give the money to the person in that you could give the money to the person and that way they're dead. But you could also, you know, bypass the person

00:32:28--> 00:32:49

and that, particularly if you don't trust the person, and so people get themselves in debt all the time. And then you give them the money, and then they spend it on whatever, and they don't pay off their debt and they continue to be in debt. So you can bypass them and give the money to the creditor, you know, to the you know, the loaner that the person who gave them the money.

00:32:51--> 00:32:52

So,

00:32:53--> 00:33:11

that is particularly also any Serbian it is for the purpose, you could like buy a ticket for them to go back home. If he said he didn't light is the purposes, he is so supportive of their mission, their main military expedition, so you buy them something for the support of their military expedition.

00:33:12--> 00:33:27

Or you buy books, for instance, if he's a builder or something of that nature, you know, so you don't this is not the league, this is not transfer of ownership, but rather for the particular purpose that is mentioned. But the first four types it is transfer of ownership. Okay.

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

Then he said,

00:33:32--> 00:33:45

A several feasibility La Casa La Vina la de when alone, the seventh type isn't the cause of a law and they are the fighters who are unpaid, not being part of an organized army unit, not being

00:33:48--> 00:33:51

part of an organized army unit.

00:33:52--> 00:34:31

And that tells you like a lot about, you know, the particularly the time of the Sahaba and famine today, they were not fighting as mercenaries. They were spending their own money to go out and fight for the cause of Allah subhanaw taala Abu Bakr Ansari after he died at the borders of Constantinople, not to make money who's not trying to make money, they are actually spending their own money. They were not part of like an organized the elite unit in an army who are paid or even compensated for fighting, they were supporting their own missions. So this was basically a completely altruistic

00:34:32--> 00:34:37

undertaking on their part completely altruistic undertaking on their part.

00:34:39--> 00:34:45

So those people who were fighting for the cause of justice because of Allah subhanaw taala, which is the cause of justice.

00:34:48--> 00:34:56

Has we clarified many times before that it is basically not in any way. an offensive fight.

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

Those people deserve to be so

00:35:00--> 00:35:19

porta, then we give them money to support them, as long as now, this is not given to people who are who work for armies who are salaried, who get paid these this is for the people during those times who used to volunteer and spend of their own money. Now can this particular category

00:35:20--> 00:35:24

be expanded to other forms of jihad?

00:35:26--> 00:35:38

You know, what a hidden detail and coherence resist them or struggle against them with it, the Qur'an a great struggle, so, intellectual struggle to have equipment

00:35:42--> 00:36:04

and physical 171 widecombe whichever order the prophets of Salaam said this end, with your souls, your lives, your money and your tongues, your speech. So the Yes, that according to the majority of contemporary Muslim scholars, that this is applicable and this is that you have today.

00:36:05--> 00:36:30

This is post the, you know, nowadays, if you look at the map of the world like 200 or 300 years ago, expansion and contraction of different empires all the time, demographics changes, people are taking over people's nations, are they going over nations and so on and so forth. And you need that to be in good shape to protect yourself. But nowadays, since the borders are settled, and you know,

00:36:31--> 00:36:33

people are not doing this anymore.

00:36:34--> 00:37:03

But there is certainly an intellectual struggle, an intellectual struggle and Muslim struggle is an intellectual struggle nowadays. So should the resources of this category be re channeled towards that intellectual struggle? teaching and educating Muslims about their Deen and also teaching others about the deen and giving Dawa, and so on and educating people, other people about the deep? The majority of Muslim scholars said yes.

00:37:04--> 00:37:32

That it can be expanded and many organizations and the also the organization that the what is it called Islamic Council of the Muslim World League, they have declarations about the permissibility of this. So this has become has become settled now. But you certainly need to be prudent also, you need to be wise because a lot of people okay, you know, we're making, like, so,

00:37:33--> 00:38:00

prudent and wise in the sense that you will not basically compromise sabotage the purpose of the car, which is the support of the Quran Misaki. Because if we start to spend on everything that we like, without keeping in mind that the most deserving of the requirements again, is then someone would come to me and say, you know, I, you know, I started I started the basketball group for the brothers here at the mustard. And usually, it's the brothers because, you know,

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

hungry served.

00:38:06--> 00:38:40

So I started like a basketball group for the brothers of the mouse said, Can I take from this account money to support this initiative, you know, that those kids will actually not come to your lectures ever. But if we invited them to a basketball tournament, they will come up, they'll associate with Muslims that get to be, you know, familiarize themselves with Islam and so on and so forth. Guess what, I will tell them, okay, go ahead, it's fine, because it's a means of our you know, that that is what that is a way of dow for sure. Nowadays,

00:38:43--> 00:38:45

that sounds very frivolous to some people,

00:38:46--> 00:38:46

you know,

00:38:48--> 00:39:33

but in reality, that is the interpretation of this expansion of this category, that is part of the interpretation of the expansion of this category, whenever that our effort, if the purpose if the actual purpose is to make those whether you bring those kids and and, and set them down and preach to them or not just the fact that that they will associate with other Muslims, there is a gain here to be sort of attained or, you know, there is something good that will come out of this positive outcome, positive outcome that will come out of this to have like a sort of a swimming day for the sisters, for instance, rent a place or have a swimming pool for them in the Convert to this place

00:39:33--> 00:39:43

into a swimming pool and get most of the lays the sisters, that is an effort. Yeah. So just five more minutes and then we will defer the rest to an extension.

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

But then again, at the same time, having said all of that, the people who will make those determinations have to be why is like we said in the morning, the hekima after we used to put everything where it

00:40:00--> 00:40:24

belongs and in this sense, they would have to prioritize and will have to proportion things. You know, I have those needed this needs to have homeless Muslims and I have, you know, a basketball tournament and if I have to divide the money I have to divide the money equitably fairly between the homeless bar brothers and sisters and you know, the basketball tournament.

00:40:25--> 00:40:46

Okay, so next is and which is last actually is that the eighth type and then we'll come back next time and have a little bit more discussion about the details of all of this. But the eighth category is ethnicity is that a family minister veto and was Africa one particular element to be here in Canada sovereignty better than

00:40:54--> 00:41:32

states is the wayfarer he is the traveler who lacks means to return home even though we're even if he was well off in his homeland. You know, the This used to be you know, I don't want to say that this does not exist anymore because we have credit cards and debit cards and all kinds of electronic transfer of money that we have nowadays it could exist, but in the past that used to exist a lot more you know, people used to carry money if you run out of the money that you have or it gets stolen or you lose it you miss it suddenly that's it until you go back home. You know the fact that that you have like

00:41:34--> 00:41:37

a lot of farm land or live you know,

00:41:38--> 00:41:50

herds of livestock at home does not really mean much now you are broke now as a traveler now which travelers are those are the travelers and had for holiday.

00:41:52--> 00:41:57

Holiday purpose. Not for nausea, not for tourism, not for tourism.

00:42:00--> 00:42:01

Okay, it's harder

00:42:02--> 00:42:27

is not needed. Tourism is not needed. But keep in mind, what do they mean by this when we read this in the purple box, what do they mean by this and if you don't understand their background, and they don't understand where they're coming from, you think that they're not making sense. what they meant for this is that if you if this is your homeland, and this is your destination, home destination, and

00:42:28--> 00:42:30

you are all the way up to here,

00:42:31--> 00:42:46

all the way up to here and you're going to this destination for what for a good purpose like suddenly the viewers we will give you money to get you to your destination and back to your homeland.

00:42:48--> 00:42:54

You're going to this destination for tourism and you are here will give you money to go back.

00:42:59--> 00:43:03

Yes, you will be entitled to a cap but only to go back

00:43:09--> 00:43:23

Yeah, because you know this is the cap money. You want to go to like Rome for like a vacation. Okay, okay, we'll give you money to go back home and then just like rebook your

00:43:24--> 00:43:25

your room visit.

00:43:27--> 00:43:47

That's it. Next time we will go through some more details about the next chapter will be our last time on the cap book. And we'll go over some details about the eligible recipients and we will go over the eligible recipients in Sharla. Concordia suffered a particular sexual and physical activity
