Life is about choices!

Life is about choices…Some we are proud of while others we may regret. We are human and not perfect and how often we make decisions we desperately wish could be undone? To overcome, learn and move forward requires Allah Ta’alas help and lots of courage.

There was a husband who woke up early in the morning and found his wife praying for him. He stared at her. For the past few months, they have been arguing.  During the past days, she hasn't been cooking for him. But this morning he got a shock. He found breakfast already set at the table. He ate. He went back to the bedroom, to prepare for a shower.

"Assalamualaykum. Have a blessed day" she said as she entered the bedroom and he left for the bathroom. After his shower, all dressed up for work; he found his wife at the kitchen, eating breakfast in peace. She was looking at some funny messages on her phone and giggling. He looked at her then walked out the door. The last look he had of her before he left was of her at peace.

That last look disturbed him. This is not how she should be. This is not how she has been. He has been hurting her, she has recently found out that he has been flirting with other women; he has cheated once and used money meant for their family on other women. She should be angry. Her peaceful demeanor disturbed him.

Evening came. He went home and met his peaceful wife again. She was cooking and laughing with their children. She had come from work two hours ago. The dinner was enjoyable. Good food, she having warm conversations with the children. He as the father felt left out. His wife and children seemed to be having fun despite him hurting them.

ZAKAT PDF Print E-mail
Behshti Zewar - Fiqah


The person who has some wealth and still does not take out zakat for it is regarded as a great sinner in the sight of Allah Ta'ala. He will be severely punished on the day of judgement. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said: "The person who possesses gold and silver and does not give zakat for it, then on the day of judgement, slabs of fire will be made for him. These slabs will be heated in the fire of jahannam and his sides, forehead and back will be branded with them. When these slabs become cool, they will be re-heated and

the entire process will be repeated." Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said: "The person who has been given wealth by Allah Ta'ala and despite this does not give zakat for it, then on the day of judgement this wealth of his will be turned into a huge poisonous snake which will encircle his neck. It will then tear the sides of his mouth apart and tell him: 'I am your wealth and I am your treasures.'" We seek refuge in Allah Ta'ala. Who can bear such severe punishment? It is the height of foolishness and stupidity that we are prepared to pay such a great penalty for a little greed and selfishness on our part. It is extremely foolish and improper to refuse to spend in the path of Allah the wealth that Allah Himself has granted to us.

If a person possesses 612.35 grams of silver or 87.479 grams of gold or any currency that equals the value of this amount of gold or silver, and this wealth remains in his possession for a complete year, then on the expiry of this year it will be wajib on him to give zakat for it. If his wealth is less than this, zakat will not be wajib. If it is more than this, zakat will still be wajib.

A person possessed the complete nisab for about four to six months. Thereafter, this nisab decreased, and after about three months he acquired some other wealth (and he once again possesses the complete nisab, even in such a case zakat will be wajib on him. In other words, if a person possesses the nisab at the beginning and at the end of the year, zakat will be wajib on him. By the nisab decreasing during the course of the year, one is not absolved of giving zakat. However, if his entire wealth is lost and he finds it later, then the beginning of the year will be calculated from the time that he finds his wealth. (The period prior to that will not be calculated).

A person possessed the nisab but prior to the expiry of one year all his wealth is lost and it was not in his possession for the complete year. In such a case zakat will not be wajib.

A person possesses the full nisab and also has debts which equal the nisab. In such a case zakat will not be wajib.

If his debts are such that if he were to fulfil his debts he will have a remainder of wealth which will equal the nisab, then zakat will be wajib on him.

Halimah Sa’diyyah radiyallahu ‘anha

This woman breast-fed Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. When he waged a jihad against the city of Ta’if, she came to him together with her husband and son. He treated her with great respect, laid down his shawl and made her sit on it. All of them accepted Islam.

Lesson: Despite her having a special relationship with Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam she knew that this would not give her salvation in any way if she did not bring iman. She therefore accepted Islam. O women! You should not be under the assumption that you are from the progeny of a certain pious man or that a certain son or grandson of yours is an ‘alim or a hafiz and that they will grant you salvation. Remember that if you have Din in yourself, these persons can ask Allah for something on your behalf. But if you do not have any Din, they will be of no help to you.

Fatimah radiyallahu ‘anha

She is the youngest of all the sisters but the highest in status and the most beloved to Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. He has referred to her as the piece of his flesh and the leader of all women. He has also stated that if anything causes her sorrow, it causes him sorrow as well. When he fell ill, he whispered into her ear and informed her of the approach of his death. Upon hearing this, she began to cry. He again whispered into her ear and informed her that she should not grieve because she will be the first to join him and she will be the leader of all women in jannah. Upon hearing this, she began smiling. Although all his wives begged her to tell them what he had told her, she did not do so until after his demise. She married ‘Ali radiyallahu ‘anhu. Many other virtues concerning her have been mentioned in the Hadith.

Lesson One: The reason for Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam loving her the most and being specially attached to her is that she was the most pious, the most patient and the most grateful. O women! Adopt Din, patience and gratefulness. You will also become beloved by Allah and His Rasul sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.

Lesson Two: When we had first mentioned the life of Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, we also listed all the names of his wives and daughters.

Umme Kulthum radiyallahu ‘anha PDF Print E-mail

Umme Kulthum radiyallahu ‘anha

She is also the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. Her first marriage was with ‘Utaybah who was also a son of Abu Lahab. Before she could even go and live with this husband, Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam received prophethood. The father and son had not accepted Islam and the former ordered his son to leave her as well. When her sister, Ruqayyah, passed away, she married ‘Uthman. When Ruqayyah had passed away, co-incidentally, Hafsah had also become a widow. ‘Umar radiyallahu ‘anhu (the father of Hafsah) wanted to get her married to ‘Uthman radiyallahu ‘anhu. However, the latter did not show any interest. When Rasulullah s allallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam heard of this, he said to ‘Umar radiyallahu ‘anhu: "I will show you a husband for Hafsah who is better than ‘Uthman, and for ‘Uthman a wife that is better than Hafsah." Based on this, Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam married Hafsah, and got ‘Uthman married to ‘Umme Kulthum.

Lesson: Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam spoke good of her and when he speaks good of anyone, it is based on that person’s ‘iman. O women! You should also put your ‘iman in order.
