OBLIGATORY AND VOLUNTARY CHARITY IN ISLAM

zakat

There are two kinds of charity in religion Islam that are obligatory and voluntary, well known as Zakat and Sadaqah respectively. The concept of charity can be seen in most of the communities of world. The tradition of Islam has rigid laws that are associated with it. Charity in religion Islam is seen as strengthening of the ideal of Muslim community. Every Muslim in the Islamic community is seen to reside with unity as one people.

The Holy Quran states in verse 2:110:

And establish prayer and give zakah, and whatever good you put forward for yourselves – you will find it with ALLAH. Indeed, ALLAH of what you do, is Seeing.

Charity is central to every Muslim’s life. Muslims should make reference library in masjids, where Muslims can go and study and understand Islam. From the masjid, there should be proper management for the collection and distribution of all Sadaqah and Zakat. It would benefit the whole community if each masjid would incorporate a medical clinic free of cost which can meet after Friday Prayer (Jummah Namaz) or any other day. Muslims who are in need of emergency assistance and help can receive urgent treatment. ALLAH Almighty knows each and everything we do in open or hidden, ALLAH Almighty has His own way of punishment and judgment.

Verse 2:43 of Holy Quran,

And establish prayer and give zakah and bow with those who bow [in worship and obedience].

Charitable giving (Zakaat or sadaqah) is highly commended in religion Islam as it is in most affective global traditions. It is through the act of charity or donation that one is elevated to a higher spiritual activity and feels the benefits and happiness of serving humanity. Ramadan of Holy Ramadan is the ideal and best time to give charity; any kind of giving it may be. One form of obligatory charitable giving, Zakat, is one of the five basic pillars of religion Islam. Zakat, means to purify, is giving alms to the needy and poor and it is obligatory for every adult able Muslim of sound mind and means. In the same way, many people choose to give Sadaqah, which are not obligatory but voluntary donations during Holy Ramadan another obligatory charity is paying Fitrana, that is given just before the Eid ul Fitr prayer at the end of Holy Ramadan.

Verse 2:274 of Holy Quran,

Those who spend their wealth [in ALLAH’S way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly – they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.

May ALLAH Almighty make us able to give charity and gives us sense of humanity and save us and guide us away from all devils that are eager to destroy Islam in us. Ameen

HUMAN RIGHTS AND MUSLIM IN ISLAM (PART 1)

islam

Since ALLAH Almighty is the only absolute and the sole master of men and the whole universe, ALLAH Almighty is the sovereign Lord, the Nourisher and Sustainer, the most Merciful, Whose kindness enshrines all beings; and since ALLAH Almighty has given every human dignity, wisdom and honour. Every human being is thereby link to others and with this all become one community of brotherhood.

In such a divine environment the Islamic confession of the oneness of ALLAH Almighty stands dominant and most significant, and necessarily entails the concept of the unity of humanity and the brotherhood of humankind. Though an Islamic society may be set up in any part of the world, Islam does not seek to restrict or bound human rights to the geographical boundaries of its own state. Religion Islam has laid down a number of universal basic and fundamental rights for humankind as a whole, which are to be respected and observed under all conditions. Either a person is resident within its own territory of the Islamic state or living outside it, whether he is at state of peace or with the state of war.

Verse 5:80 of Holy Quran,

You see many of them becoming allies of those who disbelieved. How wretched is that which they have put forth for themselves in that ALLAH has become angry with them, and in the punishment they will abide eternally.

Human blood is holy in any situation and case and cannot be spilled without any kind of justification. And if anyone violates this sacredness of the blood of Human by killing a soul without any justification, the Holy Quran equates it to the killing of whole mankind.

Verse 5:32 of Holy Quran,

Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.

It is not allowed to tyrannize anyone, women, sick, children, old people, or the wounded or any human being. Women’s honour is to be respected under all the conditions. The hungry people must be fed, the naked one are to be clothed and the wounded or diseased should be treated medically irrespective of whether they are Muslim or not or either belong to the Islamic community or are from amongst Islam enemies.

Verse 2:256 of Holy Quran,

There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in ALLAH has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And ALLAH is Hearing and Knowing.
