Q: 12 – Title: A female non-Muslim teacher had an accident and now she’s paralized. Now, she needs to have her house to be adapted [for example, she’d need wheelchairs, etc]....

Question

A female non-Muslim teacher had an accident and now she’s paralized. Now, she needs to have her house to be adapted [for example, she’d need wheelchairs, etc] because of her not being able to do things normally. So, her friends are fundraising for money which are required for this purpose. To fundraise, they’re arranging a festival where music and wine drinking will be involved. In this case, is it permissible for me to just send the money for the actual purpose instead of attending the feast?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

You may forward your contribution without attending the fundraising party for which you will be rewarded. Furthermore, if you are in the position to advise them that instead of spending money on the party and entertainment, the same amount may be used for the benefit of the disabled.

And Allah knows best

Q: 11 – Title: My grandfather passed away on 12 April 2006. He was a partner in several businessess. His wealth which was to be distributed was calculated before 30 June 2007.

Question

My grandfather passed away on 12 April 2006. He was a partner in several businessess. His wealth which was to be distributed was calculated before 30 June 2007. every year everyone of the hiers used to calculate their zakats on the 30 June of the respective year. Now all the hiers wil be recieving their share before 30 June 2007. Since no one knew what whould be their share so they did not include their share in the calculation of Zakat for the year 2006. My question is that when they shall get their share before 30 June this year, will the zakat be applicable for 2 years or 1 year i.e the year when they get possession? Since no one knew what was to be his share in absolute terms. \

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

It is compulsory to give zakat of the inheritance of the previous year as well on condition the amount of inheritance is zakatable according to the shariah laws of zakat.

My question is related to Zaakat PDF Print E-mail

Q: 10 – Title: My question is related to Zaakat

Question

My question is related to Zaakat

1. I am taking out Zakat every starting Ramadan of whatever money (cash) I have avaliable with me.Also I am includng the zakaat applicable on jewellary with my mother & sister on their behalf. What I am doing is correct?

2. I am planning to buy a car for office usage on bank finance . The total cost is Rs. 800000/- and i have to pay monthly installments. At the time of calculating zakaat whether I hve to pay zaakat on that total value of the car or it shall be treated as a liability.

3. Will it be applicable even if I have a saving at the end of the Islamic calender year?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Hereunder are some basic rules of Zakaat:

· If a person possesses the nisaab (i.e. 612.35 grams of silver or 87.479 grams of gold) or any currency that equals this amount of gold and silver over and above his basic needs, and this wealth remains in his possession for a complete lunar year, then on the expiry of this year it will be wajib on him to give zakaat on his wealth. If his wealth is lesser than the nisaab explained above, zakaat will not be wajib.

· A person possesses the full nisaab and also has debts which are equal to the nisaab. In such a case zakaat will not be wajib. If the debts are such that if he were to fulfil his debts he will have a remainder of wealth which will be equal to the nisaab, then zakaat will be wajib upon him.

· Zakaat is wajib on those goods that are bought for the purpose of trade.

· Zakaat is not wajib on those items that are used in the business, but are not for the purpose of trade (e.g. office furniture, machinery, etc.).

· Zakaat is wajib on the money that is owed to a person by his debtors.

In the light of the abovementioned, the answers to your queries will be as follows:

  1. It is correct to take out zakaat at the starting of Ramadan every year. However, it is not sufficient to take out zakaat only on the money you possess, but you will also have to take out zakaat on the goods that were bought for trade.

It is permissible for you to take out zakaat on the jewellery possessed by your mother and sister. However, as they are the ones who are liable to take out zakaat, prior permission should be taken from them.

  1. Zakaat will not be wajib on the car bought for office usage, as it is not bought for the purpose of trade.

However, if purchasing a car by bank finance means taking a loan on interest, then it is not permissible.

Q: 8 – Title: When Ramadhan comes and i will have to pay my annual zakat will i have to calculate it from the amount i had before the home i.e. the saved money or do i calculate from whats left i.e. money left after the home is bought?

Question

At the moment i have quite a lot of money that i have saved in order to buy a bigger home for my family. I will probably spend most of it over the next few months and will be left with only a small amount for emergencies.

When Ramadhan comes and i will have to pay my annual zakat will i have to calculate it from the amount i had before the home i.e. the saved money or do i calculate from whats left i.e. money left after the home is bought.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Zakat is due upon wealth that remains after the passing of a complete Islamic year.  A few basic conditions are of zakat:

  1. He possesses the amount of Nisaab that is free from debts at the beginning and end of the year, irrespective if the amount of wealth decreased during the year.
  2. The entire wealth was not lost during the year.  If it was, then the new annual year will begin from the time he possesses nisaab again.

If after the passing of a year after deducting debts, a person has wealth equal to the amount of Nisaab, then zakat will be wajib upon him from that wealth.

In the case mentioned, if you purchased the house before Ramadan, then zakat will be calculated from the remaining wealth after the purchase.  However, if it is bought after Ramadan then it will be calculated from the amount before purchase.  In other words, you will calculate from what is in your possession at the time when the annual zakat is due.
