Zakah is one of the five fundamental pillars of Islam. This makes it a compulsory act, and therefore, all Muslims must give Zakah, provided they meet certain conditions. The concept of Zakah is to purify one’s wealth and soul.
This course takes you to explore a variety of topics, the knowledge of which is necessary for every Muslim male and female. Why do we study Fiqh, in general, and the Fiqh of Zakah, in particular, is going to be highlighted here. It will also show whether the rules of Zakah are fixed or variable. Besides, what the Qur’an and the Prophetic Sunnah say about Zakah. In addition, what are the basic concepts of Zakah and what are its ultimate objectives?
