Zakat al Fitr


 


Zakat al fitr: A sadaqah (alms) prescribed by the Messenger of Allah upon concluding the fast of the month of
Ramadan; It is called Zakat al-Fitr because it becomes mandatory when Ramadan comes to an end, it is wajib (required) from every Muslim, whether male or female, minor or adult as long as he/she has the means to do so.

The main purpose of zakat al-fitr is to provide the poor with a means with which they can celebrate the festival of
breaking the fast (`Eid al-Fitr) along with the rest of the Muslims.

Measure of Zakah Al-Fitr

A Sa’[ One saa: 2.40kg barley] is to be paid for every individual, and it has to be from man’s food e.g. rice, dates, wheat, in accordance with the hadith of Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: “We used to pay on the day of Fitr during the time of the Messenger of Allah a Sa’ of food” and he (Abu Sa’eed) said: “And our foods were barley, raisins, (cottage) cheese[ Aqit: dried, curled milk (cottage cheese) used in cooking] and dates.” [ Source: Al Bukhari]


Sa’(saa) is estimated by Hanafis as = 3.25 kgs, and for the majority of scholars as = 2.040 kgs


It is also estimated as four handfuls of an average sized man.

      Zakat en el Islam :
      Limosnas opcionales:
      Definición de limosnas opcionales
      Limosnas opcionales
      Son bienes que se donan para acercarse a Allah.
      Esta definición excluye lo que se da por cariño y simpatía, como los presentes, por lo que estos quedan fuera de esta definición.
      Estatus legal de las limosnas opcionales
      La limosna opcional es recomendable en cualquier momento, especialmente en momentos de necesidad; el Corán y la Sunna del Profeta, la paz y las bendiciones de Al-lah sean con él, la promueven
      -Allah dijo: {Quien contribuya con sus bienes por la causa de Al-lah, Él se los devolverá multiplicados} [Corán 2:245] 
      -Abu Huraira, Allah esté complacido con él, relató: “El Mensajero de Al-lah, la paz y las bendiciones de Al-lah sean con él,dijo: ‘Quien da en caridad un dátil de su sustento bien ganado –y Al-lah no acepta sino lo bueno–, Al-lah lo recibe con Su diestra y se lo hace incrementar, como cuando uno de ustedes cría un potrillo hasta que sea como un cerro” [Muttafaq ‘alaih]
      -Cuando el Profeta, la paz y las bendiciones de Allah sean con él, mencionaba a los siete que serán cobijados por la sombra de Allah en el día de la resurrección, dijo: “Y un hombre que da caridad en secreto hasta que su mano izquierda no sabe lo que dio en caridad su diestra” [Muttafaq ‘alaih]
      -Ka’b Bin ‘Uyra, Allah esté complacido con él, relató que el Profeta, la paz y las bendiciones de Allah sean con él, dijo: “Y la caridad borra las faltas como el agua apaga el fuego” [Lo citó At-Tirmidhi].
      Este vídeo expone modales de las limosnas opcionales, beneficios de este tipo de caridad y su gran recompensa :

      Sobre uno de los temas del fiqh en el Islam voy a hablar :
      ¿Qué sabes sobre la palabra (az-zaka)?
      ¿Sabías que el zakat es una obra tan importante que se debe aprenderlo?
      ¿Sabías que el zakat es una de las obligaciones prescritas del Islam y es el tercero de sus pilares?
      Dijo Allah : {Y observad la oración prescrita, pagad el Az-Zaka} [Corán 24:56]
      ¿Sabías que realizar el zakat tiene una recompensa grande y es una causa para ganar la misericordia de Allah?
      Allah dijo: {Pero sabed que Mi misericordia lo abarca todo, y se la concederé a los piadosos que pagan el Zaka y creen en Nuestros signos.}
       [Corán 7:156]
      ¿Sabías que el zakat borra los pecados?
      El Profeta muhammad , la paz sea con él, dijo:
      "y la caridad apaga las faltas, tal como el agua apaga el fuego"
      Lo transmitió al Tirmidhi
      Libros: Al Tirmizi
      Asuntos: El Azaque
      ¿Sabías que el zakat es un requisito para merecer la asistencia de Allah?
      Allah  dijo:
      {Ciertamente Al-lah socorre a quien se esfuerza denodadamente por Su religión, y Al-lah es Fuerte, Poderoso. Aquellos que, si los afianzamos en la Tierra, practican la oración prescrita, pagan el Zaka, ordenan el bien y prohíben el mal.}
      [Corán 22:40,41]
      ¿Sabías que quien se niega a pagar  Az-Zakat, tiene un castigo grande?
      El Profeta muhammad , la paz y las bendiciones de Allah sean con él, dijo:
      “A todo aquel dueño de oro o plata que deja de pagar el derecho debido sobre ambos, se le aplicarán planchas de fuego que se calentarán sobre él en el fuego de Yahannam. Se le aplicarán sobre los costados, sobre la frente y la espalda. Cada vez que se le enfríen se le volverán a aplicar, en un día que dura cincuenta mil años, hasta que Al-lah juzgue entre Sus siervos. Entonces se decidirá su destino, ya sea hacia el Paraíso o hacia el fuego”
      [Lo citó Muslim].
      Libros: Muslim
      Asuntos:El Azaque
      ¿Qué es la sabiduría de la prescripción del Az-zakat?
      ¿Qué son los bienes sobre los que se impone el Az-zakat?
      ¿Qué son los requisitos para la obligatoriedad del Az-Zakat?
      ¿Qué es el Nisab?

      The person who withholds Zakah is the one who withholds Zakah either by denying its obligation[ Denying: i.e. by refuting its obligation] or by being stingy:


      1- A person withholding Zakah through denial
      Anybody who denies the obligation of Zakah has disbelieved in the totality of Islam according to the consensus of the Ummah, if he has been informed about its obligation: this is because he/she has belied Allah and His Messenger.


      2- A person withholding Zakah through stinginess
      Who withholds his Zakah due to stinginess, but not due to a denial of its obligation, Zakah should be taken from him by force, and he is not considered as having become an unbeliever, although he has committed one of the great sins and a tremendous (very grave) act. This is in accordance with the Prophet’s statement ﷺ concerning the person withholding Zakah: “Every owner of either gold or silver who does not pay his due will be called to account on the Day of Ressurection and plates of fire will be prepared for him. These plates are then heated over the raging flames of Hell Fire (Jahannam)...., whenever they become cold, the process is repeated all over again. This happens on a day that measures fifty thousand (50,000) years, until all the servants have been judged. Afterward, he will be shown his fate – either Heaven or Hell.” [ Source: Muslim]

      Furthermore while still alive, if one refuses point blank to pay Zakah, he has to be fought until he succumbs to the order of Allah Almighty and pays Zakah. Allah Almighty says: “However if they repent and perform as-Salat and give Zakah, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (At-Taubah: 5)

      The Prophet ﷺ said: “ I have been ordered to wage war against men until they bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and observe as-Salat, and pay Zakah; when they have done these, then their blood and property are safe from me (i.e. not to be touched), except if the right of Islam is at stake, and their judgment lies only with Allah.”[ Agreed Upon]

      Abu Bakr indeed waged war against those who withheld Zakah, saying: “By Allah, I would definitely fight against him who makes a difference between prayer and Zakat, for it is the obligation upon the rich; and by Allah, if they were to withhold a camel-cord which they used to pay (as Zakah) to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, I will fight them for withholding it.” [ Source: Muslim]
