  1. Hello, my name is Yun, Ji-ro.

    I’m a korean reporter.

    I’d like to ask you some questions on the recent econimic growth of Islam.

    Would you le me know your e-mail address?

    Thank you.

  2. I wantot know that how much zakat should I pay for $10,000. Can a father pay zakat to his married daughter whos financial posiiton is not well and can a sister pay to her sister.

    • Sister nargis i am very poor boy please help me
      My father was dead
      I have only my mother
      So i get education please i need ur zakat please help me
      My contact number
      03048368922

  3. !. First of all you have to know the Nisab. So if the realistic price of a dinar is say $100 then the nisab at 20 dinars would be $2,000. Therefore $10,000 is above this so on the face of it Zakat is payable.

    If you have $10,000 dollars held for over one year then the Zakat payable would be 2.5% or one fortieth ie. $250

    HOWEVER, if you look at the fqh of Zakat and other articles on this site as well as the Zakat Assessment form then you will see that it is not straightforward as some other factors need to be taken into account.

    2. Again, as pointed out in the article “zakat- A question of Muslim Leadership” it is not for us to pay the Zakat ourselves but that it should be collected by a local Muslim leader who distributes it locally to whoever fits the categories

    • This is Zahid from bangladesh. in my country not everyone give Zakat because this is poor country. i need Zakat very soon.. please help me my email id is : bangladeshi7@yahoo.com.
      If anyone wants any IT related help i can help you but please give me some money. i can build website. i can do website design and development. if anyone wants to help me please send me text.

  4. Wa Alaikum Salaam
    perhaps someone local to you reading this post may get in contact

  5. I am serious

  6. A working person buys a piece of land for investment purpose, but loses his job after he has paid for the land. The land was bought with clean money (money on which zakaat was paid)
    He now does not have the money to develop the land nor
    to pay the zakaat on the land. what is he supposed to do sell the land or wait until he has the money.

    thanks

  9. I am a Srilankan female. I would like to know whether there are people around the world who are keen in helping the poor and the needy. Srilanka consists of many deserving Muslims. Kindly reply if in a manner to provide zakat.

    • In the UK there are many charities such as Muslim Aid, Helping Hands and Islamic Relief. I suggest you contact them as they have many international aid programmes. Of course I hope they do not confuse zakat with much needed and praiseworthy aid work and general sadaqa.

      May Allah grant ease and success to the people of Sri Lanka

  44. I’m Mrs Rose D Payne by name. I live in USA, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scams everywhere.Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mr James Morris who lend me a loan of $10,000 under 8hours without any stress. If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him via email: morrisjames92@gmail.com i am using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders. And I don’t wish even my enemy to pass through such hell that I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent online lenders,i will also want you to help me pass this information to others who are also in need of a loan once you have also receive your loan from Mr Mr James Morris,i pray that God should give him long life. God bless him forever for the good things he has done in my life.
