    لِيَحْمِلُوا أَوْزَارَهُمْ كَامِلَةً يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۙ وَمِنْ أَوْزَارِ الَّذِينَ يُضِلُّونَهُمْ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ ۗ أَلَا سَاءَ مَا يَزِرُونَ
    On the Day of Resurrection they will carry their own burden and some of the load of those they have led astray without any knowledge. Oh, how evil a burden they will carry!

    Question: I sold gold [jewellery] that I used to wear for some time but I did not pay Zakaah on it. I would like from you to make it clear to me what I should do about its Zakaah, given that I sold it for four thousand riyals.

    Response: If you did not know that you had to pay Zakaah on it until after you had sold it, then there is nothing that you must do. However, if you knew that you had to pay Zakaah on it, then you should pay 2.5% per year. You should pay that for each previous year according to the value of gold in the marketplace. You must pay 2.5% in cash. However, if you did not know about that until the last year, then you should pay Zakaah just for the last year.

    Shaykh Ibn Baaz
    Fataawa al-Mar.ah

    Question: How does one pay Zakaah on jewellery that is not simply gold but is gold with precious stone inlays? Does one also include the weight of those stones since it would be very difficult to remove the gold and weigh it by itself?

    Response: Gold is the thing upon which Zakaah must be paid, even if it is simply for wearing. As for the precious stones, such as pearls, diamonds and so forth, there is no Zakaah on them. If a necklace, for example, has both gold and these other stones, the woman, her husband or guardian then must ponder the matter and try to estimate the amount of gold or give it to an expert to estimate it. It is sufficient to be fairly certain about the matter [and one need not be exact]. If the amount of the nisaab is reached, Zakaah must be paid. The nisaab is twenty mithqaals.. which is ninety-two grams. The Zakaah is to be paid every year [once a year]. The amount is 2.5%. For example, on one thousand, a person pays twenty-five. This is the correct opinion among the views of the scholars. If the jewellery is for business purposes, then one pays Zakaah on all of it, including pearls and diamonds, according to their [market] value, which is the same with all types of merchandise goods. This is the opinion of the majority of the scholars.

    Shaykh Ibn Baaz
    Fataawa al-Mar.ah

    Question: What is the ruling on using zakaah monies to finish builidng a masjid that is almost completed, and its construction may be halted (due to lack of funding)?

    Response: What is well-known to the scholars, and it is the position of the vast majority of them, so it can be considered like ijmaa’ (a scholarly concensus) of the scholars of the early pious predecessors, is that zakaah is not to be used for building masaajid, buying books, or the likes. It may only be distributed to the eight kinds of recipients that are mentioned in the verse in Soorahat-Towbah (Aayah 60), and they are:

    1) the fuqaraa. (those who are extremely poor);
    2) the masaakeen (the poor and needy);
    3) those who work in distributing it (the zakaah);
    4) those whose hearts are inclinded towards Islaam;
    5) freeing slaves;
    6) paying debts;
    7) in the way of Allaah; and
    8) the traveler who is in need.

    And the phrase {in the way of Allaah} means jihaad specifically.

    This is what is known to the people of knowledge, and the building of masaajid is not mentioned here, nor is the building of schools or roadways, nor their likes.

    And Allaah is the One who grants success.

    Praying behind the Traveller
    Question: What should the resident do if he prays behind the traveller?

    Response: If the resident prays behind the traveller [leading the prayer] – who has shortened his prayer, then the resident’s prayer behind him is correct; So when the [traveller] imaam completes the prayer, then the resident must stand and complete the remaining two rak’ahs of the prayer.

    Not knowing exactly when to enter state of ihraam whilst in an airplane
    Question: A man wanted to perform the Hajj or ‘Umrah and put on the ihraam clothing on the airplane. Then he did not know the place of the meeqat, so should he delay entering the state of ihraam once he reaches Jeddah or not?

    Response: If he intended the Hajj or ‘Umrah (whilst arriving) by air, then he should take a bath in his home and wear the izaar and ridaa (ihraam clothing), if he wishes. So if there is only a little time before approaching the meeqat, he should enter the state of ihraam according to what he intends, whether the Hajj or the ‘Umrah, so there is no difficulty in this. And if he does not know about the meeqat, then he should ask the pilot of the airplane, one of the hostesses or one of the passengers whom he trusts and who has some experience in this.

    And with Allaah lies all success and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.

    Allah (all glory be to Him) tells us in the Holy Quran about Ramadan that, “(He wants you) to complete the prescribed period (of fasting), and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.” (2:185)

    Many benefits, in addition to the spiritual, result from completing this prescribed period of fasting.  This article attempts to explain those related to our biological rhythms.

    Ablutions (Wudu')
    1.137:
    Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The prayer of a
    person who does Hadath (passes urine, stool or wind) is not
    accepted till he performs the ablution." A person from
    Hadaramout asked Abu Huraira, "What is 'Hadath'?" Abu Huraira
    replied, " 'Hadath' means the passing of wind."
    1.138:
    Narrated Nu`am Al−Mujmir: Once I went up the roof of the
    mosque, along with Abu Huraira. He perform ablution and said,
    "I heard the Prophet saying, "On the Day of Resurrection, my
    followers will be called "Al−Ghurr−ul−Muhajjalun" from the
    trace of ablution and whoever can increase the area of his
    radiance should do so (i.e. by performing ablution
    regularly).' "
    1.139:
    Narrated `Abbas bin Tamim: My uncle asked Allah's Apostle
    about a person who imagined to have passed wind during the
    prayer. Allah' Apostle replied: "He should not leave his
    prayers unless he hears sound or smells something."
    1.140:

    Every Muslim must perform the Pilgrimage to Makka at least once in their lifetime if they have the ability (physical, financial, etc.) to do so.  Pilgrimage becomes obligatory when the ability first is obtained.  To delay the Pilgrimage at all past that point is a sin.

    When you make your intention to perform the pilgrimage to Makka, start with tauba (repentance), returning anything which is not rightfully yours, undoing any acts of oppression against others, pay off all of your debts, prepare all expenses for all those it is your obligation to support until your planned time of return and return any trusts to their rightful owners.  In other words, with the exception of the support of dependents, leave for Makka as if you are never going to return.

    The prayer of a person who is ill (Salatul Marid)

    Whoever has some excuse due to illness and cannot stand during the fard salah is allowed to pray sitting. If he cannot pray in a sitting posture, he may pray while on his side by making gestures. In such a case, his gestures for sajdah should be lower than those for his ruku’. This principle is based on Allah’s words: “…And celebrate Allah’s praises, standing, sitting, and lying on your sides.” Continue reading
