Masjid e Umer 79 Queens Road, Walthamstow, London, Greater London, E17 8QR
Hazrat abu hurrairah (ra) relates that rasulullah (saw) said whom so ever allah gives wealth, but who do not pay its zakat, his wealth will be likened for him on the resurrection day to a huge bald snake having two fangs. It will bite him round his neck and take hold of him with his two fangs meaning its two jaws and say – i am your wealth and i am your hidden treasure. Then he recited “and let not those who covetously with hold of that which allah has bestowed on them out of his bounty” ‘alaayah’.
Zakat is fardh upon a person if s/he is A Muslim, An Adult, Sane, and owns wealth equal to the value of Nisab. Nisab is the amount of wealth, which makes one liable for payment of Zakat and must remain in his/her possession for one Lunar year***.Read more...
