  1. Salam Everyone Does anyone know of any organisations in Turkey through which one can pay Zakat-al-Fitrah? Thank you
  2. Assalaam Malaikum brothers and sisters, I have a few questions about Zakat as religious duty, as I am trying to learn more about Islam. My first questions is what is the difference between paying Zakat and paying Khums? What are the best websites or articles I could goto to find out more? My second question is if I were to be giving to any charity in general (such as a charity organization for the poor and homeless - but without any religious affiliation) would that be considered paying zakat? Or would I need to pay zakat to strictly an Islamic organization designed for charity? Thank y
  3. Assalam alaikum, Just wanted to ask which charities you all recommend? Preferably 100% donation policy or as good as. please include websites and only include ones that communicate on their site using English. Jazak Allahu kheir!
  4. Salam, Can someone tell me what the difference is between zakat, khums and sadaqa! Many thanks.
  5. Alsalamu Alaykum The concept of Zakat in the Qur’an and the Sunnah is considerably more expansive than the limited strictures of the law and may be understood at several levels. Arabic dictionaries offer two basic meanings for the tri-literal verb ‘z k y’ from which the noun ‘Zakat’ is derived. The first meaning is ‘to thrive, to grow and to increase’.[1] The other meaning offered is ‘to become pure, to be just and righteous’.[2] This meaning may be applied to material items in the Qur’an [3] where the word ‘tazakki’ is used synonymously with ‘tutahhir’ (to purify) and it can also be appl
  6. Salamualaykum Does anyone know how centres and organisations distribute Zakat al Fitr? As in, my Marja says that at least 3.5kg worth should be given per poor person. ALL centres that we have here in the UK follow Maraja who state that 3kg is enough. I have messaged the centre asking them to pay 3.5kg worth on our behalf, but I'm not sure if they will do it. My question is: Does the method in which organisations distribute Zakat al Fitr cover my requirements already? How much do they give each poor person? I have a strong feeling that I'm missing something
  7. Guys I randomly fell on an article online of a photographer who was in Syria during the latest attack and it just broke my heart. He was there he saw everything the picture of him crying describes the level of horror the country is going through. I feel bad because I am currently bothered about what my life isn't offering me and not giving me what I want whereas they are people and children living hell on earth. I feel like a very selfish person but at the same time, I don't know how to help. Even if I want to give zakat I want to give a good amount but as a student who lives at their parent'
  8. Assalam O Alaikum! I want to understand the difference between Zakat and Khums with Reference to Quran and Hadith. If there are different opinions on Zakat and Khums, please do share! I am here with the purpose of learning and understanding. Kind regards, Muhammad Danial
  9. Salams My understanding is that Sunni Muslims do not permit giving Zakat to non-Muslims.[Source: Link]. However, Al-Mawrid Foundation [Sunni] and its fellows generally tend to present different narratives on many matters including this one. Their video on this topic is as per below. In comparison, I wanted to learn the traditional Shia view. What have the Ahl-ul-bayt taught regarding giving zakat to non-Muslims? Is there a difference of opinions among Shia scholars? Is there a difference between modern and classic rulings? etc. @Ibn al-Hassan @Qa'im
  10. Alsalamu alaykum إِنَّمَا الصَّدَقَاتُ لِلْفُقَرَاءِ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَالْعَامِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا وَالْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَالْغَارِمِينَ وَفِي سَبِيلِ اللَّـهِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ فَرِيضَةً مِّنَ اللَّـهِ وَاللَّـهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ. Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler - an obligation [imposed] by Allah. And Allah is Knowing and Wise. [T
  11. Alsalamu alaykum « خُذْ مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِمْ صَدَقَةً تُطَهِّرُهُمْ وَتُزَكِّيهِم بِهَا وَصَلِّ عَلَيْهِمْ إِنَّ صَلَاتَكَ سَكَنٌ لَّهُمْ وَاللَّـهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ.» Take, [O, Muhammad], from their wealth a charity by which you purify them and cause them increase, and invoke [Allah’s blessings] upon them. Indeed, your invocations are reassurance for them. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing. Zakat is one of the five pillars on which Islam is built. It is among the obligations of faith. Because of this it has been described by a Prophetic hadith: Prayer may not be accepted fr
  12. Asalam o Alaikum, I follow ayatullah sistani regarding the furuhi matters. however, the tauzeeh of ayatullah sistani is unclear to me on zakat obligation. For reference let me quote 1907. "Zakat on gold and silver becomes obligatory only when they are made into coins, and are in currency for transactions. Zakat should, however, be paid on them even if their stamp has been effaced." 1908. "It is obligatory, as a precaution, to pay Zakat on coined gold and silver worn by women as ornaments, as long as such coins are legal tenders, that is, transactions are made with them
  13. http://www.the-tls.co.uk/tls/public/article1634311.ece As a theory of ethics Utilitarianism is very flawed, so yes, it's good to give money to guide dog charities, but the article makes a good point that we need to pay more attention to the impact our charity will have and try and give charitably in an effective way.
  14. Asslam-o-alikum I want to know how much zakat i have to pay on 10 gm gold bought for saving purpose?
  15. (BISMILLAH) (SAlam) I hope you are all in the best of health and Iman. Since a number of threads about Khums and Saadat have been cropping up recently, while trying to answer one of them, a question came up in my mind. If the point is to help all poor, whether Syed or not and whether through Khums or Zakat, why do our laws make Khums the exclusive source from which poor Saadat can be helped with? Why not just allow all the poor, whether Syed or not, to be helped from the Zakat? Why is Zakat haraam for the Syeds? While I remember coming across the reasoning sometime ago, in a lecture, I'v
  16. (salam) Eid Mubarak to all of you inshAllah, may Allah forgive our sins and accept our prayers. In case somebody forgot, or has questions, I'm leaving this here: (wasalam) The numbered rulings are according to the fatawa of Ayatullah Al-Udhma Seyyid Ali Al-Husaini Seestani, Dama Dhilluhu The rulings in brackets are according to the fatawa of Ayatullah Al-Udhma Seyyid Abulqassim Al-Khui, Ridhwanullahi Alayhi Payment of fitrah becomes wajib (obligatory) after sunset on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr on a person who is baligh (attained puberty), aqil (sane), and is neither needy, n
  17. Hello, I am interested in the gift-giving practices which are present within Islam, both historically and today. I am giving a paper on gift-giving within the Isma'ili faction of Shia Islam and I'm interested in the comparison of this to other factions. I am particularly interested in the history, so any information regarding pre-1500 Islam would be particularly valuable. Are there any etiquettes to giving? The Qu'ran warns about giving with the aim of receiving (74.6), would this forbid giving to those of a higher social level? Charity may be viewed in many ways a fundamental part of the reli
  18. Assalam-o-Alaikum. 1. Can someone give a list of all obligatory and recommended Islamic financial dues (Khums, Zakat, Fitrah, etc)? 2. If possible, provide a comprehensive but straightforward explanation on what it is and how it should be paid (for each). I don't know if the Maraaji' differ regarding them, but in case they do, I would like Khamenei's rulings. JazakAllah.
  19. Listen up guys my cousin in Syria is is a really terrible situation right now and is being forced by her abusive ex-husband to pay 30,000 dollars to buy the home he owns or be left out on the streets. She has no job or savings to support herself. Please, if you could donate anything you can, even if its a dollar, it still counts. Thank you so much brothers and sisters. Please spread this.

  21. Assalaamu Alaikum. How to increase the Thawab / Hasnat / rewards of Salah , Saom, Charity , Ablution and othet Ibadats ?
  22. (salam) I hope and pray everyone is doing well. I'm taking a break next semester, and I am damn happy and relieved about it. Now that I know I'm going back, I will have to give Zakat on my own, as my father had been doing it for me since I was away. Every time I drive through all the streets and roads in Karachi, I see numerous beggars and instinct used to dictate to ignore them as you are already giving away Zakat. I've been told that most beggars are part of this big "mafia" or gang of beggars that plan to beg for money and then go spend it on drugs etc. The reason I open this thread is to a
