اَلَّذِينَ لا يُؤْتُونَ الزَّكٰوةَ وَهُم بِالٰاخِرَةِ هُمْ كٰفِرُونَ.

 

Those who do not pay Zakat, are the denier of the life hereafter and are Kafir

(Sacred Surah Hameem Sajdah, Ayaat Shareef-7)

والزَّكَوةُ بُرْهَانٌ

Honorable Zakat is the evidence of Eiman (sacred Nasaee Shareef)

 

عَنْ أُبَىِّ بْنِ كَعْبٍ، قَالَ بَعَثَنِي النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم مُصَدِّقًا فَمَرَرْتُ بِرَجُلٍ فَلَمَّا جَمَعَ لِي مَالَهُ لَمْ أَجِدْ عَلَيْهِ فِيهِ إِلاَّ ابْنَةَ مَخَاضٍ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ أَدِّ ابْنَةَ مَخَاضٍ فَإِنَّهَا صَدَقَتُكَ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ذَاكَ مَا لاَ لَبَنَ فِيهِ وَلاَ ظَهْرَ وَلَكِنْ هَذِهِ نَاقَةٌ فَتِيَّةٌ عَظِيمَةٌ سَمِينَةٌ فَخُذْهَا ‏.‏ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ مَا أَنَا بِآخِذٍ مَا لَمْ أُومَرْ بِهِ وَهَذَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم مِنْكَ قَرِيبٌ فَإِنْ أَحْبَبْتَ أَنْ تَأْتِيَهُ فَتَعْرِضَ عَلَيْهِ مَا عَرَضْتَ عَلَىَّ فَافْعَلْ فَإِنْ قَبِلَهُ مِنْكَ قَبِلْتُهُ وَإِنْ رَدَّهُ عَلَيْكَ رَدَدْتُهُ ‏.‏ قَالَ فَإِنِّي فَاعِلٌ فَخَرَجَ مَعِي وَخَرَجَ بِالنَّاقَةِ الَّتِي عَرَضَ عَلَىَّ حَتَّى قَدِمْنَا عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ لَهُ يَا نَبِيَّ اللَّهِ أَتَانِي رَسُولُكَ لِيَأْخُذَ مِنِّي صَدَقَةَ مَالِي وَايْمُ اللَّهِ مَا قَامَ فِي مَالِي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَلاَ رَسُولُهُ قَطُّ قَبْلَهُ فَجَمَعْتُ لَهُ مَالِي فَزَعَمَ أَنَّ مَا عَلَىَّ فِيهِ ابْنَةُ مَخَاضٍ وَذَلِكَ مَا لاَ لَبَنَ فِيهِ وَلاَ ظَهْرَ وَقَدْ عَرَضْتُ عَلَيْهِ نَاقَةً فَتِيَّةً عَظِيمَةً لِيَأْخُذَهَا فَأَبَى عَلَىَّ وَهَا هِيَ ذِهِ قَدْ جِئْتُكَ بِهَا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ‏.‏ خُذْهَا فَقَالَ لَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ ذَاكَ الَّذِي عَلَيْكَ فَإِنْ تَطَوَّعْتَ بِخَيْرٍ آجَرَكَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ وَقَبِلْنَاهُ مِنْكَ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ فَهَا هِيَ ذِهِ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَدْ جِئْتُكَ بِهَا فَخُذْهَا ‏.‏ قَالَ فَأَمَرَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِقَبْضِهَا وَدَعَا لَهُ فِي مَالِهِ بِالْبَرَكَةِ ‏.

 

‘Hadrwat Ubai Ibne Ka’ab RwadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhu narrated, “Noore Mujassam Habeebullah ‘Hu’dur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Salam once sent me to a person to collect Zakat from him. He placed all his wealth before me and the volume of his wealth was such that donating a young camel was mandatory for him as Zakat.  I asked him to pay a one year old camel.  He said that the young camel would neither be able to deliver milk nor could be used to ride on it.  Rather you should take this middle aged camel and it is meaty as well. So you take this one.

‘Hadrwat Ubai Ibne Ka’ab RwadiAllahu Ta’ala Anhu said, I cannot take it without the  Mubrwak permission from Noore Mujassam Habeebullah ‘Hu’dur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Salam. However, He stays in sacred Madina Shareef  close to you. If you desire to pay the middle aged camel, you should place it before Him.  If He accepts it, I would take it from you. Then he got ready and came with me along with his camel.  He met with Noore Mujassam Habeebullah ‘Hu’dur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Salam and said, Oh Ya Rwasoolullah Swallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Sallam! Your representative asked me to pay Zakat  and, by the oath of Allah Pak the Greatest,  it was the first time that a person came to me for that purpose. He asked me to pay a one year old camel as the sacred Zakat but it would neither give milk nor could be used to ride on it.  I requested him to take this young fleshy camel but he is not accepting it. Now I came to you along with my camel. You please accept it gladly.   Noore Mujassam Habeebullah ‘Hu’dur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Salam clarified that he asked what was Wajib (mandatory) for you.  If you would like to do good deed from your own, then Allah Pak will reward you. And we will also accept it.  The person said, ‘the camel is here, please accept it’. Noore Mujassam Habeebullah ‘Hu’dur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Salam granted it and said Doa for his prosperity”. (Sahih Sunane Abu Daud Shareef, Part-1).
