regards to whether Zika is due upon the gold jewellery of a woman or not Firstly, we have to understand that jewelry is of two types in this regard. Type number one, the jewellery that was bought with the intention of it serving as an investment as a savings, there is no intention to wear it for the sake of beautification adornment, no such intention it was purchased for the sake of an investment in the form of perhaps biscuits in the form of coins or even in the form of jello, if there is no intention to wear it gold jewellery, then such jewelry if it reaches the nisab of zecca. In other words, that threshold, this threshold if one were to have this threshold, in their

00:00:52--> 00:01:46

possession, then the car becomes obligatory upon that and in the case of gold, it is 20 minutes call a measure which is equivalent to 85 grams of pure gold, one myth call equals 4.25 grams of gold, so 85 grams of gold, and if this was purchased with the intention of it serving as an investment or as a savings, with no intention to wear it, then there is no difference of opinion amongst the scholars in this regard that gold is subject to zecca on a yearly basis May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to give out our second I mean, the second type jewellery that has been prepared to be worn and used as an adornment, the form of chains, necklaces, bangles, it is purchased with the intention of

00:01:46--> 00:01:54

wearing it for the sake of beautification. Now, this is something that the scholars have deferred as to whether it is obligated to pay zakat on it or not.

00:01:55--> 00:02:34

The School of Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah they are of the view that it is obligatory to pay zakat on this type of jewelry as well every single year, every single year as a cat needs to be given out on it. But the majority of the school Mr. Malik rahula, the school of Imam Shafi Rahim Allah and the school of Imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal Rahim Allah, all of the view that it is not obligatory to pay zakat on this particular type of jewellery. As for the evidence that the school of Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah sites in this regard, I'll give you one narration. This is the narration of Amrit schreib who narrates from his father who narrates from his grandfather, that a woman came to the Messenger of

00:02:34--> 00:03:09

Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and she had a daughter of hers with her and on her daughter's hand, there were two tick bracelets of gold. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he asks, have you given the zecca on these two which she replies in the negative? She says no. Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he asks her Would you like a lot to make you two bracelets of fire on the day of Tamar because of these? So she immediately takes them off and gives them to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in charity and she says they are for Allah and His Messenger they are to be spent for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This Hadith is recorded on the book of Imam Abu

00:03:09--> 00:03:51

Dawood Rahim Allah. Now, the school of Mr. Musharraf or EMA Malik Imam Ahmed rahula. They debate in regards to the authenticity of this narration. Well, some of them classify this narration as being weak so it is not to be acted upon. And then we also have Jabari bin Abdullah the last one even or Omar rodya logline Houma, who are of the opinion that there is so these are companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Sahaba did one light is Allah Jemaine they are of the opinion that there is no zeca on jewellery that was purchased for the sake of beautification. This is also the view of a smile with their back or the loved one. And a similar view is reported from our mother eye shadow

00:03:51--> 00:04:34

the last one hand, remember that kutani rahima hola he narrates with his chain from es muy bien Banco de la one that she used to adorn and beautify her daughter's with gold jewelry and she did not pay zakat on it, although its value was nearly 50,000. This is recorded in the tsunami of Imam Adolfo dinero Hola, Mr. Malik proximal line he has more time he reports from Allah Qasim Ibn Muhammad that I shall the Allah one How am I di Chateau de la one huh? Was the guardian of her own orphaned nieces and they used to wear jewelry they used to wear gold ornaments, and she did not give zakah on their ornaments. Malik also reports from now fair that Abdullah bin Omar radi Allahu

00:04:34--> 00:04:46

weinheimer his daughters will gold ornaments, gold jewellery, and he even aroma of the last one, he did not pay zeca on their ornaments. So this is you know the evidence that

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

the school of Imam Shafi Mohamad and Imam Malik Allah hammer Home Alarm they they cite in this regard, so as you can see, you have two opinions the School of Imam Abu hanifa that

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Is that the case obligatory upon the second type of jewelry, and the schools of Mr. Malik Emma Shafi and Emma David humble rahula who are of the view that is aka is not obligatory upon this type of jewelry if it was purchased for the sake of beautification and adornment. Now, we have a third opinion and I would like to share that as well. And this third opinion, aims to reconcile between the evidences of the School of Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah and the schools of mmm Mr. Maliki mama Shafi and Mr. Mohammad Ibrahim Allah. So the scholars of this third view this third school of thought they opine that Zika is due upon the jewellery of a woman if it reaches the nisab, or

00:05:43--> 00:06:27

exceeds the nisab, once in a lifetime. So let me give you an example. as examples bring about clarity, let's say a woman has 10 pieces of jewelry with her that are equivalent to the threshold or exceeding the threshold. Now it is upon her to give out the Zakah in regards to these 10 pieces once in a lifetime, not every year. So let's say she, she comes into possession of 10 pieces of gold, then she gives out hers aka and with that, that amount of gold has been purified, those 10 pieces have been purified. Now after a few years, or after a period of time she comes into possession of another five pieces or another 10 pieces. Now it is upon her to purify those 10 pieces too by giving

00:06:27--> 00:07:06

out Zakah once in a lifetime. No, she doesn't have to give it for the initial 10 pieces because he's already given out zakkai. And because those 10 pieces now she needs to give it for the second batch of 10 pieces that she has come into the position if she doesn't come into possession of any gold that she doesn't have to give out at all. So they put forth this opinion in a move to reconcile with the initial narrations and the second narrations as well the view of the second group of scholars. The first group cite the narration of the two tick bangles the prophets lie Selim asks the woman have you given us the chi in regards to those bangles and as you can see, the prophet is

00:07:06--> 00:07:41

specifically talking about those two pieces of gold. It wasn't in general, he asked in regards to those two bands in others have you purified those two bangles if you have given out you as a kind regards to those two bands, then those two bands appear? And you don't have to give out Zakah again in that regard. And that is why you let Ron see the other had it as a bit of a long one how she doesn't give out as a kind regards to animals on a regular basis. So from this, we understand the scholars of the third opinion they say they state that there's a guy in regards to gold jewellery is a different type as you don't have to give it out on a yearly basis. If you give give it out once in

00:07:41--> 00:08:05

a lifetime, it would suffice. So having mentioned all these opinions, we humbly sympathize with the second opinion and to be on the safe side. We would go with a third opinion as well where you would give it out once in a lifetime and we conclude by saying Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best in this regard, said Mr. La cumbre de la Eva barakato
