dear brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh maybe peace, mercy and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be on all of you.
Welcome to the show Ramadan, a date with Dr. Zakir I'm your host use of chambers and today we will be discussing the topic Zakah part two, Dr. Zakir Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh walakum wa salam ala berkata Dr. zakia following on from the first episode we had on zakka. I like to ask you, if I may,
if a shopkeeper has a number of goods in the shop, is the cut applicable on all of the goods in the shop or just some of them? And hamdulillah was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while Ali was a big mean, ama but also Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim rubbish Elisa de sadly, recently Emily Wyler, Melissa Neff Kohli as far as the cart on goods in the shop, all the merchandise and goods for trade and commerce,
which are bought and sold, whether it be property, land, whether it be
animals, foods, machinery or the stationary with the forest, if anything, all of them are liable for Zakat, and
whatever goods that are there in a grocery shop auto is there for trade, there should be an inventory made
and all should be noted down and once in a year, take the stock off all the goods available, what was there for trade in respect to what it is cars, vehicles, whatever it is, they should have noted down and the cost should be paid at two and a half percent whatever is there in the shop the stock as well as the profit was remaining at the end of the year
that we're calculating one should be noted down and the cost should be paid at 2.5% except
of the shop
and the furniture and the vehicle used for transport these can be exempted from the car, otherwise all the trading stock everything should be calculated from scratch. Okay, thank you for the answer. Now, in terms of paper currency, money, how should Zakah be calculated? As far as people can see is concerned it is interchangeable with gold and silver, we should try and find out the value of rock paper currency. And that keeps on changing
we can either evaluate what is the amount of currency that will reach the nisab level either with the nisab of the goal that is 85 grams of gold or the nisab of the silver that is 595 grams of silver. So, we should try and find out what would be the cost of 85 grams of gold
in your country in your currency or 595 grams of silver in your country
in your currency, not the difference of opinion that was should be taken nisab Should we take the nisab of the gold or the silver some of the forecasts say that take the lower limit. So that a person gives the card even though the nisab is low. Some of the forecasts say that take the nisab which is higher so that that gives advantage to the poor person and did not pay till it reaches the high level of the nisab. What are the forecasts say that since silver was used as a way of trading in the olden days, so we should take the nisab of the silver and try and find out what is the currency as far as 595 grams of silver is concerned. But this option is left but if you really want
to be more sure that you can take the lower level of nisab and normally silver, the rate of silver nowadays 595 grams of silver is much less than 85
Good, we should see what is the current value suppose like calculating the car to be paid at one particular date, whether it be the first offer man whatever it is, we have to find out what is the value of 595 grams of silver or 85 grams of gold at that time. Now, at present in India, the value of one gram of gold is approximately 900 rupees that will be approximately 20 to $18 for one gram of gold, this rate of silver and gold will change in each country, what is the value in India will change what's in Dubai may change in America may change in UK and the country those keep on fluctuating in India today approximately for one gram of gold is approximately 900 rupees that comes
to 20 to $23 that means 85 grams of gold the nisab level would be
76,500 rupees approximately in dollars, it would be somewhere close to 19 $100 if you want to take the sub level of silver, then one kg of silver approximately cost in India 18,000 rupees that's equal to $450. So, 595 grams of silver would cost approximately 10,710 rupees and in dollar that will be about 260 $8 approximately, but then it will change the way will change in UK will change in USA. So, wherever you're living, you can take any financial magazine economic magazine and try and find out the rate and you can calculate yourself and if it reaches that level, then you should give the cards above that also to two and a half percent on whatever savings you have whatever surplus
you have, you have to give that means the cost that you
know so, there are many Zakah calculators available on online free as well as on there. So, another thing was worried me slightly is is
applicable on money that you've loaned out. As far as money that is lent anything lent whether it is gold that is given on loan, or silver or money or currency, the person who owns that he has to pay zakat on it though I know that the one you have lent to but natural without any robot without interest at Salomon.
If they've lent to someone,
then the person who owns it has to pay the person who uses it, he doesn't have to pay and you have to calculate it. For example,
if you have given for a business deal, saying that we share the profit, then it is your money, you have to pay the zakat. The two types of loan that are given when a secured loan and the other is unsecured loan. If you give to one of your friends or relatives
without any Riba interest just for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala
if it is a secured loan, knowing the person is rich, and return it to you, you have to pay zakat every year. So if you give it an abort a couple of years past maybe two or three years pass, you have to pay every year,
the Zakat on that amount, if you have 900,000 rupees on it $1,000, then you have to pay two and a half 1000 rupees, or two and a half $1,000 every year on the money you have lent every year if you do not have the money, the money of Lent is all that you had and you cannot pay the car, then when it comes back to you, it comes back to you after three years, then you have to pay for the three years that are three to 2.5 to be 7.5% that said now $1,000 sign or 1000 rupees. And the other type of loan is an unsecured loan
where the person who you have given to may be poor. And we have doubts that the he will be able to repay the money or not. If it is unsecured loan, and if you feel that we may not receive the loan you have given. So if you don't want to pay, you need not pay every year.
But if you don't get the money, then you don't pay the soccer. But if you get the money, maybe after five years, then you have to pay for all the years that you had lent. So if you're paid for five years 502.5
that becomes 12 and a half percent. So you pay 12 and a half 1000 up to $200,000. On that amount. Okay. But I think that's very clear. Thank you very much Dr. Zakir for that answer. Are there things which a Muslim does not have to pay zakat on certain things are exempted from zakat. Number one is your personal goods, which are the basic necessities. For example, the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the furniture in your house, a fridge or a microwave oven. All is exempted from the house in which you live is exempted from the car. If you're carrying a weapon for safety irrespective of the cost of the weapon, it's a personal
belong which the requirement which is an SSD, that's also free from the card if your vehicle for traveling, it'd be a car, motorcycle, animal or horse ride on all is exempted from the car, all your personal belongings are exempted from the car.
All the vegetables also exempted from the car.
If you have any animals
that are used for agriculture, or for personal use that trees exempt from the cut, and the Prophet said that vegetables are exempt from the cut. The idea trees exempt from the cut grains of less than
five or six is exempt from the cut or any of your animals are personalizing from these other things on which the cut is not counted anything above this, which is surplus. If you choose any sub level or above it, then you have to pick up
the next question really relates to the general issue of calculation of zakat. Could you explain to the viewers
in a nutshell, how that is done? There are two methods of Zakat can be calculated
because the card is payable when you have it for one year. So you can keep a delete record of what is your wealth above the sub level you can keep a weekly record or monthly record. So then whenever the new sub level is above, you have note on the date on first of January, what was the sub you had second of January what you have, so what you had in the first of January, say first of January 2007. So first of January 2008 it will occur and what you had on second of January, calculated in third of January or on a weekly basis or monthly basis. But to keep a record of all this is very difficult, then you'd be spending half the rent keeping the records which will be difficult. So it's not
practical at all. The easiest method and the safe method, where mistake inshallah would be avoided is
picking one particular day in the full year.
And calculate it exactly one year after that. Most of the people prefer I'm done because it is the month of charity. And we get more blessings and more awards. But Ramadan is not the only month that we have to pick up you can pick up any day of the year, but it should be calculated according the hijiri calendar, not according to the solar calendar. So first of January 2007 first of the 2008 is wrong. It should be first shabaneh First off, but since I'm done is the most pious month, first of Ramadan you can take anywhere from that, if you take first off from then calculate all the sins that you have and next year
if it first off from Dan 14 123
then first of all man 14 ready for surgery
should see what amount you have. Now, if you calculate only on one day and see exactly one year later, one year later, it is the safest method, they can never be any possibility that you will give less Zakat,
they can be high chances to make the most occur, but nevertheless why if we keep on calculating daily, then the level keeps wandering up and down.
But if you calculate one particular day of the year, which you do pick up
and if that happens to be the lowest collection, the lowest saving in the full year.
Yet you are paying the minimum amount of Zakat say on the first of Ramadan, you have 100,000 rupees as saving $100,000 saving.
And that happens to be the lowest saving the full year.
Yet since the lowest you have to pay the car on what you possess one full year, you have to pay two and a half 1000 rupees or $1,000 on that amount. It's safe.
But it may be that it is the highest saving of the full year.
So yourself you may be painted with Mozart, but you won't be paying less.
But some people may think oh it is the highest every that means you know me paying unnecessary more amount. There are chances you may pay more. But then no chance will pay less because even if it is the highest and if you think that you will try and catch the lowest point. The lowest point we keep on changing. It may be in the month of Siobhan it may be in the month of Rajab maybe in the month of March. And then if you try and catch that point. Next year it will again change. So if you try and get that point that a high chances will be less. So best is to pick up one point Monday in the full injury calendar. And keep on taking that every year. And you'll be less assured that you will no
pill has occurred you may pay more
because if the value
keeps on fluctuating
up and down, you have to pay on what amount you possess for the full year. Yeah, but the lowest point once, maybe Siobhan the other, maybe
the third maybe hedge, maybe any month, the safest is to pick up anyone keep on sticking through that year, and inshallah you'll never pay less, you may pay more sometimes in person more 20% more 30 but more, it'll never be less inshallah, so, the safest method and is the best method. And on this day, whichever day you pick up, you have to calculate all the savings you have, whether in cash,
what is the bank balance,
what is the gold you possess, whether in the form of jewelry, whatever stocks you possess, whether in shares, whatever investment, all this you put together or your business, the stock trade of your business are put together, if you are due to receive some amount from someone, even that has to be calculated, because he has given a bit late, but it is your property or if you have given some loan to someone who has to be calculated, but if you have to give some money to someone that has to be deducted from the amount for example, you have taken a loan of $100,000 or 100,000 rupees, a total amount of 500,000 rupees that you have in your home, cash in hand cash and bank stock everything.
So, you have to minus from 500,000 100,000. So, you have to pay that rather than 400,000.
But if you put assign it 1000 and you have given loan of $200,000 to somebody else, and you have to receive $100,000 because a good year sold, so, 500 plus 200,000 200,000, you have to pay the cost on $800,000. So, in all you have to calculate on one particular day of the year, and then you have to pay zakat two and a half percent on that.
I'd like to ask you though, in the case of a person who unfortunately, is a little bit miserly, doesn't really want to pay the Zakah. Therefore, what advice would you give to that particular person that person is very well off. But due to miserliness, they decide to forego the Zakat? What's your advice to that person? There are various verses in the Quran, and several added, which you can relate to these people who are miser and don't want to give Zakat in order to encourage them because Zakat Allah says in the Quran, in Surah fauja, chapter nine, verse number 20. And those who love their wealth, with excessive love, talking about these people are miserly
for the law says in the Quran, in Surah chapter 100 was somebody that and he is voluntarily in love with the wealth. You know, those people talking about love wealth so much and are dying for the wealth. I love giving a warning to these people. Allah says in Surah Boone, chapter number 64, Muslim 15 that your wealth and your children are a trial for you are a test for you, unless telling all these things that you love so much, or a test or a trial for you.
And then how do you determine the
number 2336 with the Beloved Prophet said that every woman would be tested for something and my Ahmad be tested by wealth, wealthy that is phenomenal.
And Allah subhanaw taala gives an example in the Quran. In surah. Kalam, chapter number 68 was from 17 to 33. And Allah narrates the story of a person who owns a beautiful big garden.
And this person was very charitable, whatever earnings he got from the garden, he spent whatever is required on the family, and in maintaining the garden, and the rest, everything is even charity. So this continued for a long time. After this person died, his children, they said, The Lord of food our father was, he gave everything in charity for the decided that when whatever harvest to get whatever goods they get, they will slowly at night, take it away to their own homes, which are undecided, and no one will come to know. So when the fruits and everything came by to get to the homes, and next day, when they came to the garden, everything was ruined. And they complete garden
was absolutely ruined. And only their garden was affected. And the Quran says in Surah column, Chapter 68 was Timothy one.
And we have transgressed the limit. And Allah says in the next verse in Surah, Kalam chapter 16, verse 33, that for these people, that is a punishment in this world, and most severe punishment in the hereafter. And we those who love the wealth and a miserly people, is a punishment this world and then
Next world, there is a bigger punishment. Those people who are miserly and don't want to give the class.
Actually the heart is for purification, for whatever impurity you have will be washed away, and it's to increase your wealth.
As the Prophet said, I said earlier, that charity does not decrease your wealth.
And Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Lal, chapter two verses 811, that those people who are miser and think that they are self sufficient, Allah subhanaw taala makes that part of my journey smooth for them.
But the wealth will not save them and they will fall headlong into the pit
mines that people think that was sufficient for them, they themselves will actually perish.
Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al Imran Chapter number three was complaining that those who covetously hold on to the wealth that Allah has given them,
thinking that it will be good to them, actually, it will be lost for them.
And on the Day of Resurrection on the Day of Judgment, their wealth will be worn around the neck and it will be lost for them.
So person should be reminded that Zakat is to increase his wealth and Zakat is given to decrease the love for wealth.
As Allah says in Surah, chapter three, verse 22,
that you are not a believer, until you give what you love to the tribe is to decrease your love for wealth, and increase the better amongst the Muslims and purify your wealth and increase your wealth. Well, Dr. Zakir, I think we've now reached the stage where we've defined Zakah and how it's calculated. But I'd like to move on now to the different categories of people
who are eligible to take the Zakat or to whom the Zakat is paid. Could you first confirm the different categories of people that can first receive the Zakat, the categories of people who can receive the card as mentioned in Surah Tauba Chapman was number 60. The first is the flora that is a poor, second is the masakan that is the needy. Third is the Amazon those who are involved in collection of the socket
for his model of football hollow, those whose hearts are inclined towards Islam. Fifth, other recap. That is the heart can be given to free a captive or in bondage
sixth, or the garment. Those who are debtors. Seventh, is feasibly law that can be used in the way of Allah subhanaw taala.
And it is debney. Sabine. That's the wayfarer. So there are eight categories specified in the Glorious Quran. tomb Zakat can be given Dr. Zaki, can you also as a point of reference, what is the punishment for a person who forgoes the obligation of Zakat, the punishment for those people who refuse to pay zakat, or a neglectful in penguin socket. And a beloved professional philosopher said it's Misha needs of the brownie.
That the person who does not pay the cut, his wealth will be destroyed.
And the Prophet said further in the say, a deed of sale
or number 100 number 758. That those who are neglectful in paying of Zakat, they will be a calamity but to them, maybe like famine, etc. For the Beloved Prophet said, in every major and Hakeem
that those who are neglectful to refrain from paying Zakat, Allah subhanaw taala will not send in on them if it wouldn't have been for the animals and cattle that they have Rin Rams unknown to them.
And Allah says in the Quran in Surah Tauba chapter number nine was the metaphor into defy that those who bury gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah subhanaw taala that means do not
announce to them agreeing this penalty. The belt with the horded will be put into the fire of hell. And with it, they'll be branded on the forehead, on the flank and on the back and it will be told to them take the wealth with you hold it and a beloved partner ferrocerium said it's mentioned nadie
se Buhari broken socket one number two, number 1403. That those people
Do not pay zakat. On the day of judgment. They dealt with they avoided on which they have not paid Zakat would be made into a snake which is a bald headed snake, bald headed, male poisonous snake, which has marks above the two eyes and revolves around the neck, and it would sting at the cheeks, and would say that I am your wealth, and you will be treasured. And the Prophet says, and repeats the verse of the Quran, Allah will install in chapter three, verse 108, that those who covet the wealth that Allah has given and thinking that will be good to them, and are spent in the way of Allah subhanaw taala the wealth will be worn down the neck, and it will not benefit them.
So this is a punishment for a person who does not give
for the Beloved Prophet said, especially as a Muslim
woman number two in the socket, added number 2161. The Beloved Prophet said that those people who would not give Zakat on the kettle,
these cattle they haunt would be broken, or would be twisted or not be with horns. And with the horns, they would go to the master
and some of the cattle would template breed the feet and this will continue happening till the full day
and one day will be equal to 50,000 years that the direction and then we'll decide whether these people go to hell or heaven. Further it's mentioned in the hadith of Bokhari on number two in the book of Zakat, Hadith number 1399 and 1400. There were some Arabs who revolted. I don't want to play soccer, has a double burger, like visiting said that these Arabs Muslims who do not want to play soccer, he will wage a war against them. 100 to one man life with him said
that how can you wage a war against him because the messenger masala Sallam said that only wage war against those who worship anyone besides Allah and nurse li li Alam una sola. But then Heather Walker says that but these people are breaking the law. And you will differentiate
between Zakat and Salah that are different and does not give the fat even if he does not give one chicken or one lamb he used to give at the time of the Prophet. Now if they plan from giving Zakat, he will wage a war against them. And hello, tomorrow my life president says that Allah subhanho wa Taala has opened the heart of my life and whatever decision was right. So, there is a grievous penalty for those who do not pay
me Allah subhanaw taala protect us from not paying the Zakat and being amongst those who will be punished as a result of that doctors again, I mean, could you just explain to me the you use the term fukuhara and Masaki, could you explain those two terms? The meaning of the word fuqra is a poor person, a person who may not have enough money or wealth for his basic necessities in order money for his food, lodging, boarding, clothes, furniture, etc. As far as the masakan is concerned, it is a needy person,
he may have some of his needs fulfilled, some may not be fulfilled,
he may be very poor, he may be less poor,
the different categories of massage when, for example, a person may be hand to mouth, leading a life have the basic necessities. But suddenly, he develops a heart attack.
He may not have the money for his treatment, so he becomes a massage and he becomes a needy. So when he has a hard money to help him further medical treatment, it's a basic need. And as a beloved partner.
It's mentioned in sable Holly one number two, in the ball, socket, Hadith number 1395.
The Prophet said that pay zakat on the wealth on your property what mentioned above the sub level
and takes the heart from the rich and give it to the poor give to the
for the poor people who may not have the basic necessities and requirements and most likely the person who's needy and whatever is required for a need it fulfill it can be fulfilled by admin. Okay, thank you very much for that explanation. Next question. Dr. Zack is it permitted for people who are appointed to collect the Zakat to take their salary from the Zakat they are collecting, even if that personal group of people appear to be wealthy. As I mentioned, the third category who can diffuse occurs among those who are involved in collecting of the soccer or they are
Admit stating the socket, how it is collected, how to distributed. So if a person spends his time in the collection of Zakat from different Muslims and spends a time in sync to that it reads the rightful person who falls in these categories. Even if it's well the you can pay from the Zakat fund his salary because he is giving his time and it should be paid for the labor he's doing. And they've added in sooner without or number two, in the book of zakat. Hadith number 1643 that I live in a sad, my life presents him he was appointed by
Todd Miller TV Tim to collect the Zakat funds and after he collected and gift for the Mormon library Tim
Sweeney has acquired money to help him further medical treatment. It's a basic need. And as a beloved partner.
It's mentioned in sable Heidi, one number two, in the ball, socket, Hadith number one Tina and five
Prophet said that pay zakat on the wealth on your property what mentioned above the sub level
and takes the heart from the rich and give it to the poor give to the
for the poor people who may not have the basic necessities and requirements and most likely the person who's needy and whatever is required for a need it fulfill it can be fulfilled by a sock admin. Okay, thank you very much for that explanation. Next question. Dr. Zack is it permitted for people who are appointed to collect the Zakat to take their salary from the Zakat they are collecting, even if that personal group of people appear to be wealthy. As I mentioned, the third category who can distinguish among those who are involved in collecting of the soccer or they are administrating the Zakat, how it is collected, how distributed so if a person spends his time in the
collection of Zakat from different Muslims, and spends a time in sync to that it reads rightful person who falls in these categories, even if it's well the you can pay from the Zakat fund his salary, because he is giving his time and it should be paid for the labor he's doing. And they've added in soon enough without work number two, in the book of socket, how did number 1643 that I live in sad, my life Peter Tim, he was appointed by
Todd Miller TV, Tim to collect the Zakat funds. And after you collect it and give it
up to Tim, how to manipulate him, he gave him some money. So he said, I did it for last minute Allah, my reward will come from Allah subhanaw taala I don't require this money. So he said take it and keep it because I was also appointed by the Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala. And he gave me money. And when he gave me money, I said somewhat same thing what you had said, but he told me that if you are given something of which you have not asked, don't refuse it and use it for a personal thing, and take it as Attica. So even though you're rich, if someone gives you so this proves that a person who's rich also can be given
for the service he has given for collecting at the administration of the Zakat funds is aka, could you just explain the when it comes to the term those peoples whose hearts are inclined towards Islam, or the religion? Who does that include that category of people. This is the fourth category mentioned the Quran in Surah Tauba chapter nine was number 61, the football club, those whose hearts inclined towards Islam, the various categories that can come in this, for example, in the use of propagation, those who are newly converted Muslims, or other the word revert is the right word that rewards Islam and to stand in their faith. The money can be used, it can be used for the propagation
to see to it that non Muslims are given knowledge of Samson has come to the total Islam. And there's a hadith which is mentioned in a Muslim woman number two in the book on circuit number 2318. Hello Dolly my life with a Tim. He sent some golden nuggets to the Prophet, which along with some dust particles, to the Prophet gave it to four different people of different tribes. The people of tribe of Quraysh they felt a bit bad. The Prophet was a bit partial and didn't give it to any of them, but you have to the tribe. The Prophet said the reason I gave it for reconciliation. I wanted
The heart to be standing towards the snap. So profit use that to give it a particular group of people so that they come closer to Islam. So this is one of the ways that that can be used for getting people closer to Islam, whether it be towards new converts, or those also who may be moving away from Islam for use that money for that the thing is tenant, for example, there is a revert to a newly devoted to Islam. You may have social problems, you may have economic problems, you can use the cost money to settle them to buy from a house he doesn't have. If he doesn't have a business, you can start a business with that money, so that he's secured, and he feels happy coming in the new
faith. Thank you very much for the answer. takasaki could you possibly explain the term to free the captives in terms of Zakat? This is the fifth category machine for the Toba chapter and verse 60. Which save
and we use for a club that the freedom of capitals,
which is mentioned in
Muslim emod or number 400, number 18647. Where once a person comes to Prophet Musa solemn, and ask him that, what things should I do? That will take me closer to Jenna, that's paradise, and take me away from hell. So the Prophet ism, that set for your life and liberate a slave. So the person was confused, what is the difference between the two? And you are wondering, what's the difference? do see as the Prophet that is it one the same. They said no, the first one to set for your life is done individually by you, you can set free a life. But the second one, that liberating a slave is done in collaborating with the other people and if liberate asleep, so if you do these things, it will take
you closer to 10. Now, switch the cut money can be used to liberate a slave, for example, a Muslim was in bondage. And if he can free him by paying the master some money, what is dead, so you can give this money to the slave and again get his freedom, I can give them an ID to the master and free the sleeve. In the context of today, if there are Muslim capitals, who are maybe prisoners of war, and if some money can be given to the people who have held them captive, and their freedoms in Russia, money can be used to feed the Muslims. Thirdly, it can also be used, for example, someone by mistake
accidentally kills a person. And if the relatives of the person who has been killed required their money require blood money, those Zakat money can also be used for blood money. In cases of accident injury, someone was killed, and so that it can freed the Muslims. So these are the various heads come under the category of recovering of capitals. Thank you, in terms of a person who has a debt, and wants to pay the debt back,
can they apply for Zakat to pay that debt and fire the person who's the debtor? As mentioned the Quran the sixth category is God among those who ended. So those who are in debt, they can surely ask for money we can apply with that money. Because normally a person may not be aware that a person is in debt. So you can ask, you can even beg. And they didn't say Muslim, I'm number three, how did number 3777 when a person comes in, back to the profit, or loss and is taking place, we buy some fruits, and the loss and his business, and even good debt. So he goes to the prophet and begs him to help him. So the Prophet says that give him out of charity give more money. But even after money was
given, it wasn't sufficient to pay his debt back. So the person who he owed the debt to the Prophet says, Take what you get, and write off the rest of the debt. And there's a hadith which is mentioned in say Muslim woman number two, in the book of Zakat, Hadith number two to seven, one, where a person who's in debt, he comes to the Prophet, and he begs the Prophet for help. The Prophet says, Wait till we get the psutka and inshallah we'll give this upcoming
the Prophet ism, that it's not permitted for a person to beg, unless he falls in three categories. Number one is, unless he's in debt, we can keep on begging till he has given back his debt.
Category two is a person who has been struck by a calamity
and doesn't know the basic requirements of sustaining, so we can beg till he gets a sustainance. The third is a person who has been smitten by poverty and he is very poor and he comes in the category then also, he can
Big till the time he gets his basic density. So for a person who's in debt about Islamic Sharia, he can apply, he can ask, and he can defeat this admin
can Zakat fund be used in order to propagate Islam?
And furthermore, does this category fall under the title Jihad at feasability law? The seventh category mentioned the Quran. In Surah Tauba. Chaplin was 60 it is feasible in law, jihad, feasibly, Allah is one of the category the fifth fifth Abdullah was in the way of last minute Allah Diaz feasibly Allah means striving in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. And in context, it means the person who is fighting for the cause of Allah subhanaw taala. So surely that can be used for paying the salary of a person who's fighting in the way of a last minute Allah can be used for buying weapons if he's fighting to protect the Muslims. In the broader sense Jaffe sobre, la mistyping in
the way of Allah subhanaw taala in any way. But the category mentioned the Quran is Allah, that is in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. And surely, in this category, it can be used for the propagation of Islam. For example, it can be used for distribution of Islamic literature.
It can be used for holding Islamic conferences, in which people are bullied Allah subhanaw taala. And this category can also come in well for those whose hearts are inclined towards Islam. And furthermore, Zakat can be used for propagation, like having Islamic program, the satellite channel, and there are fatwas from different forecasts that the cat can also be used to fund Islamic channels which are nonprofit channel and Islamic satellite channel. So that the message of Allah subhanaw taala it reaches toward the world. So one of the best way of propagation today is a satellite channel. And we can use the crowdfund live in for supporting satellite channel.
And a beloved partner sulla Salaam, said, it's mentioned the hadith of tuna noodle. For number two in the book of Zakat, Khalid number 1631, that a rich person can receive the card under five categories. Number one is for GFP sub Leela. Number two, if either administrating the funds on circuit number three, if he gets into debt, number four, he can use that money to buy something from a poor person or as received as a cut. And number five, that if his neighbor who was poor receives the card and use their funds to give a meal to the nimbo, who is rich, so even though it does occur, it can accept it. So there are the five categories mentioned. But in general hamdulillah Zakat can
be used for the propagation of Islam.
Okay, what about in the case of a rich person who happens to be traveling and runs into problems as it does happen when you're traveling? Is that person eligible to receive Zakat? As far as the last category of Zakat is concerned, this is a bill that is a wayfarer or a traveler. If a person who's traveling and if he gets stranded in a foreign land, even though he's rich, for example, a rich American comes and someone Rob's his suitcase and all his money, any standard. So that money can be used for buying his ticket to go back home. He's a miscibility, the wayfarer, one option can be can take loan and turn the money back. But even he can take that money. And this is a very good
provision in Islam. Because for example, a stranger in a strange land pool room, how can you trust him with loan, you know, the new person is there, you may not trust him. So if you can give it his obligation, it's obligated you. So you can give it to a rich person also. And you can use but it should only be used for going back. You can't use the cards funds so that he stays for long there and he uses the hotel and he has luxurious food etc. It should be good that he goes back to his place so that we help him out with the minimum requirement so that he reaches back safely home.
Dr. Sokka What about the different categories of people who are not eligible to receive Zakat? Could you explain to the viewers who they are amongst the categories who are not eligible? Those who do not fall in the eight categories mentioned in Surah Tauba, chapter nine, verse number 60. But national are not eligible to receive Zakat as a general rule. But there are some people who may fall in that category mentioned Serato by chapter nine verse 16, yet they may not be eligible. First is the descendants of homosassa. Abroad partner fellows from said it's mentioned say Buhari, I'm number three or the number two zero
Five. That one is the Prophet sees a date fallen down. And he said I would love to eat it, but I'm afraid that it may be of charity. Because the thing of charity cannot be consumed by the prophet in assembly. There's another hadith of say Buhari one number two, in the book of Zaha Hadid, number 1491. Where hasn't Agnelli mellow up once ate a date from what was part of the charity to the Prophet said, that expanded from the amount because the family of the Prophet they cannot eat from what is given the charity. The reason is basically, that people should not allege that the profit you know is taking the cause or God is compulsory of the Muslims and profiting from it. So it is the
realm of Allah subhanaw taala wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala that he is seen to it that people should not learn allegation, that's what I feel is one of the reasons and the second category. Those people who may fall in that category that are not eligible if he's a non Muslim.
If you're a non believer, as profit masala Salim said that he mentioned in sable Hari Rama Bittu in the book of Zakat
ha did number one thing and five,
the prophet said that it is compensate to give Zakat on your wealth on your property and take wealth from the rich and give it to the poor, it will no Muslims. So it means that non Muslims, but nothing excluded. Even the rich man is excluded.
rich men, you cannot fall in the category who cannot defeat soccer. And furthermore, the prophet said it's mentioned in hadith of tirmidhi Hadith number 661. The Beloved Prophet Musa rostrum said that a person who is rich
and able bodied, he should not be giving us a car. That means a rich person who can really do some work and do a job. So but naturally should not be given the car unless he's doing a job and the salary he gets is not sufficient for basic needs, then but naturally may be able bodied yet you can give a normal person who is able bodied is not doing a job and begging asking of Zakat, the prophet may have proof of it. And the last category is you cannot use the card to a person who's a dependent
in the fallen dead categories, you may be poor, he may be masakan he may be needy may be in debt, but a person who's a dependent like for example, a person cannot give the car to his life or the wife is the dependent. A person cannot give the car to his son or his daughter while the children are dependent on the Father. Similarly, a son cannot give the car to his father and mother because they are the dependents. So this is the fifth category who the card cannot be given even though they may fall in their categories of who have been permitted. This is according to the Tabatha penwortham 60 Dr. sokkia. In the case of a person who wishes to give Zakat to a non dependent family member,
