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

Some Muslims are extremely rich, and have several huge companies and factories and such like.

00:00:10--> 00:00:21

Should Zakat be paid on complete assets that the person owns or only on its goods that it's acquired.

00:00:23--> 00:00:39

Again, the same different opinion, the normal ruling is that you pay is a tax on the merchandise and goods of trade. What do you buy and sell. But the place we are businesses, it's free from the car. You may have vehicle which you use for transportation that's really from the heart,

00:00:40--> 00:00:54

but only on the goods and merchandise you base upon. But this example is again of a very rich Muslim who has many companies, many factories, may be costing millions of dollars.

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

Should he pay zakat,

00:00:58--> 00:01:05

only on the goods on the full assets. Again, the same group of scholars said that since he's excessively rich, and the company very big,

00:01:06--> 00:01:19

and normally what rich people do, that they have one company, whatever profit they get, no one shows it in the house. Don't give him the lock in case you won't buy gold and keep it he'll never know factory, that's an investment.

00:01:21--> 00:01:45

So person who has few factories, who makes millions of dollars a month, the moment he gets it, within a few months, he invests your brain on the factory, then he earns more, you open a new factory. So if he has to pay only on the goods, the goods plus say the stock will be a very small amount. But the cost of the factory will run into hundreds of millions of dollars.

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

So I agree again with the same group of scholars

00:01:49--> 00:01:53

will say that if a person owns many factories,

00:01:54--> 00:02:29

so the car should be paid on the complete asset of the factory, including the land, a beloved performance lesson for the set, its mission say Buhari won number 700. Number 567. To the Prophet said that a person will be rewarded for everything that he spends, except what he spends in making buildings, and also making buildings and all these big things. And further, it's mentioned in say, Buhari, we're in number 400. Number 3185, the beloved prophet Muslim said

00:02:31--> 00:02:40

that I am not worried about Obama as far as power is concerned. But I'm more worried about my own mind as far as prosperity is concerned.

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

Because previously,

00:02:44--> 00:03:27

many people were destroyed because of luxury, and this to compete varanda some fight about my alma because of luxury, and their compete with one another. And as the early people were destroyed, they too will be destroyed. samosa. la sala was worried about these things about luxury, you know, having big big mentions having big, big factories. And just to get on common terms, when the question is asked, that when you buy shares in the stock market, or stock file shares of a company, which is helpful, and you ask any scholar that you buy the share, do you have to pay the currency, yes, whatever the value of the share, and a V net asset value, you have to pay zakat on it. So when you

00:03:27--> 00:04:10

buy shares of the company, the share cost is equivalent to the complete asset. It isn't only on the goods. So when you buy shares from the stock market of a company, and then you're paying the full soccer of the share value. If a person owns a company completely, that means he's 100% shareholder. So they're when you buy 1% 2% of the shares, you're paying complete amount of that 1% that includes the land costs, everything. So your y when you own it completely, do not appear on the goods. So you're getting it become the difference. So, ensure that you have to be on the net asset value, I believe in in the company you have to pay for the completeness of value and inshallah that will

00:04:10--> 00:04:51

increase the wealth of that rich man and we purify his wealth inshallah. So the best thing is that Allah says in Surah Tauba chapter nine verse number 3435, that hoard not gold and silver, there are people who hoard gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah subhanaw taala give not Zakat on it. I don't agree with penalty were hit reproduced from the fire of hell from the welder possessed, and they'll be banded with it on the head, and the flanks and the back and be told to them that tasted the welds which you heard it so therefore I'm of the opinion that soccer should be given to the big mansion. Even though you're living in it gives the cloud if you have multiple

00:04:51--> 00:04:56

houses gives the cat if you own land, even if do not rent gives a cat on it.

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

In fact, it gives a cat as a general rule

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

If the person is really very rich, really very rich, he should he gives a crap on everything. I know that the basic needs should not be given Zakat, but it's safe for the afra that he gives the cat on the position of the factory and everything so that it is safe and is free from the fire of hell.
