How to learn about the rules of zakaah in an easy way…

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Someone sent me an absolutely marvelous link on zakaah the other day.

It was an interactive e-magazine which explains the fiqh (jurisprudence) of zakaah in an easy way.

If you’re anything like me (i.e. the fiqh of zakaah just goes above your head), then this e-mag is for you:

Make sure you click on all the links, otherwise you’ll lose out on the “interactive” part of the magazine.

[Note: Zakaah has nothing to do with Ramadan. It’s just that most Muslims seem to pay their zakaah in Ramadan.]

Article: A Brief Guide to Zakaah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Are Zakaah and Ramadan related?

In reality, they are not. [Zakaatul Fitr, which is different from zakaah, IS related to Ramadan though.]

However, many people pay their zakaah in Ramadan (only for some of them to erase the word “charity” from their vocabulary for the next 11 months).

I’ve put up some resources on zakaah before (the search function is very useful, you know).

However, here is a very simple guide to zakaah: A Brief Guide to Zakaah

There are two important issues that people always ask about:

1) How does one pay zakaah on the interest money they earned (which are unlawful earnings obviously) before they repented?

Here’s the fatwa (ruling) of Shaikh Ibn Baz (rahimahullah) on this issue.

2) How does one pay zakaah on money that he has loaned to others?

Here’s the fatwa of Shaikh ibn Uthaimeen (rahimahullah) on this issue.
