Sūrah ar-Rūm

This sūrah begins with two predictions. One was for the victory of Romans over the Persians after they had been nearly vanquished by the latter. Simultaneously, it was predicted, Muslims would gain victory over the Quraysh. Both would take place in less than a decade. Both looked impossible at the time. Both came to pass as predicted. In this alone there is ample proof for open minded people that the Qur’ān is the Word of Allāh.

Limits of Scientific Knowledge

يَعْلَمُونَ ظَاهِرًا مِّنَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُمْ عَنِ الْآخِرَةِ هُمْ غَافِلُونَ
They know but the outer surface of this world’s life, whereas of the ultimate things they are utterly unaware. (Ar-Rūm, 30:7)

This is a general comment on the limits of human knowledge acquired through sense perception and logical reasoning—in other words, scientific knowledge. This knowledge is based only on the observable phenomenon, whether observed with the help of instruments or without. But there is much more to life than the observable spectrum. The victory of Romans over the Persians within a decade, was beyond all human calculations.

Zakat al Fitr PDF Print E-mail

Zakat-ul-Fitr (fitrana)

$10 per person

Giving Zakat-al-Fitr (also known as Fitrana) is one of the many obligations of the holy month of Ramadan. Like the Zakat on an individual’s savings, it also entails giving a small amount to charity. Zakat-al-Fitr, however, must be given before the Eid prayers are performed after Ramadan. It is not uncommon to get Zakat-al-Fitr mixed up with Zakat or vice versa. Both terms sound similar and even by definition have some similarities which often lead to confusion.

There are, however, some very notable differences between these two important Islamic rites. As long as you have a clear understanding of these differences, you will easily be able to differentiate between the two and know how to go about fulfilling their obligations.

Difference Between Zakat and Zakat-al-Fitr

The first difference lies in eligibility. Zakat-al-Fitr is compulsory on all Muslims regardless of age or financial standing. The only exemption is for those who do not have one sa’ (approximately 2.6 – 3kg) of their staple food in excess of their needs.

Because of the wider range of people who have to pay Zakat-al-Fitr, it is the responsibility of the head of the household to pay for those under their care. Thus, for children, this task is undertaken by their parents on their behalf. Zakat, on the other hand, compulsory for only for Muslims who meet the Nisaab values after all their yearly Zakatable earnings are calculated.

The second difference lies in the amount. The amount due for Zakat-al-Fitr is very small, and rarely exceeds $10. Zakat, however, can amount to a larger number because its 2.5% of all net savings.

The third and final difference lies in their due dates. Zakat can be paid at any time, with the only condition being that the earnings reflect one year’s worth of net savings (one lunar year). Zakat-al-Fitr, however, goes hand in hand with Ramadan. Zakat-al-Fitr is paid during Ramadan before the month ends. This is a very specific time frame that all Muslims must abide to. Giving Zakat-al-Fitr before the Eid-ul-Fitr is extremely important, as a late payment is invalid and the obligation can’t be made up for.

ZakatulFitr

Zakat-al-Fitr is $10/person this year for each member of your family. Please pay as early as possible so the funds can Insha'Allah be distributed in a timely manner. You can pay Zakat-al-Fitr in special marked boxes at Masjid Ibrahim or Pay Online on the Website through PayPal.
