Q: 32 – Title: I have purchased a flat for R400 000 – I have thus far only paid R20 000. I have in my possession R150 000 ..What do I pay my Zakat on?

Question

I have purchased a flat for R400 000 – I have thus far only paid R20 000. I have in my possession R150 000 – I am not sure if I am going to use this amount towards the payment of the flat or invest it elsewhere. I have taken a loan and the installments will only come into effect once the flat is ready – that could be in another years time. Do I pay zakkat on the R150000?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Zakaat is payable on the R150000.

And Allah knows best

Q: 31 – Title: While fasting is it possible to kiss my wife ?...Our Nabi (Sal) House is so small. As I have heard so .. then where didi the childrens , Zaianb (rAd) Rukaiya (Ral) ,Fatima (Ral)?

Question

Dear Imams.

1.While fasting is it possible to kiss my wife ?

2. Our Nabi (Sal) House is so small. As I have heard so .. then where didi the childrens , Zaianb (rAd) Rukaiya (Ral) ,Fatima (Ral)
stay.. Could pls descibe the house of Nabi and how he lived with his children in a small house .

3.Is it a sunnath to sleep on the bed or on the floor ...

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

1. If by kissing there is a fear that the desire will be incited, it is better not to kiss. However if one kisses the fast will not be invalidated. If the saliva of the spouse is swallowed due to kissing, the fast will be invalidated.

2. Historical books as Wafaul Wafaa state that the houses of the wives of Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) was 6 hands x 10 hands (Seeratun Nabi Page Vol.1 Page 177). One could barely stand upright in the house (Ibid). The daughters of Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) were from his first marriage to Hadrath Khadija (Radiallahu Anha) while in Makkah. They were grown up when Nabi (صلى الله عليه وسلم) migrated to Madinah Munawwarah. it is possible that they got married and stayed with their husbands in Madinah Munawwrah

I like to know its necessary to take a janabat bath after sexual contact during ramadan months before subahi azaan PDF Print E-mail

Q: 29 – Title: I like to know its necessary to take a janabat bath after sexual contact during ramadan months before subahi azaan

Question

iam married i like to know its necessary to take a janabat bath after sexual contact during ramadan months before subahi azaan or is janabat bath is necessary only if iam performing prayer and is the bath is not important for fasting ?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

The fast is valid even if one had not taken a compulsory bath before Subah Sadiq. The bath is necessary for the fajr prayer. The ghusl should not be unnecessarily delayed risking one to miss the Fajr prayer.
