An effort in f a c i l i t a t i o n

I am a Muslim, alhamdulillah! Is my pocket also a Muslim?

Zakah and Ramadhaan are seen as twins. In Ramadhaan, we not only fast but we also give Zakah, alhamdulillah. Even though it is a not a rule that the Zakah be given only in this month, we give Zakah in Ramadhaan because of amassing greater rewards in this blessed month. We have to give Zakah anyway, so why not give in a Month which is Full of Blessings Unlimited?

Interesting point to note is that both Zakah and Sawm (Fasting) were made obligatory in the same year, the Second Year of Hijrah.

Zakah is an obligatory act of worship in Islam.

A police offer must follow the system. It is his duty to keep the crime in control. If any policeman looks at his uniform how tip-top it is and marvels at his achievement of being a police officer while not bothering to perform his duty and continues in that state, won’t he be thrown out of his job by those in authority?

There are Muslims who marvel at their outer appearance: Look at my beard, how long it is! Looking at my dress, don’t you understand I am a Muslim! This cap which you see on my head was purchased in Makkah, you know!

Abu Bakr Siddique (radiyallaahu anhu) declared war against those who refused to give out Zakah! With whom do you wage war? With your own brothers? Just think over!

Qur’an gives us a crystal clear message: You can’t keep one leg in one boat and the other leg in another boat and sail in the voyage of your life! 

“O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy”. (Surah al Baqarah: 208)

May Allah give us the Tawfeeq, Hidayah and Istiqaamah to live by His Guidance. Aameen
