    A Case applicable to Sadaka, Zakat Mal and Sadaka Gareya



    Alsalam Alikom Good people,


    Hope my email finds you at your best inshaAlah.


    An orphanage (for orphans with special needs), called "Mo2assaset el wafa2 we al wala2"; is located in Nasr city beside El Ahly club. They have a total of 39 girls & boys; 2 of which are with C.P (shallal roba3y).


    Three Issues to consider regarding this orphanage


    1. "Major Issue" , the orphans are going to be kicked out from the apartment (and I mean it, no negotiations accepted) within a month, thus, they are searching for an apartment to own (so as no one would have the authority to kick them out again). They have already found a near by one for 570,000 L.E., they were able to convince the owner to take 300,000 L.E. and the rest to be paid on settlements. Till last week, they only had 100,000 L.E. This case is considered SADAKA GAREYAH as well as ZAKAT MAL inshaAlah. Attached are a scanned business card for the lady in charge at the orphanage, along with the orphanage brochure


    2. Since Eid is approaching, we are collecting money donations to buy them Eid Keswa. As previously mentioned; they are 18 girls and 21 boys with varying ages. Keswa for each child shall include (Pants, Top, Shoes & underwares).


    3. They have a very tight financial situation and they have specific needs on monthly basis i.e. food, detergents & medicine. All are attached for your review

    Urging Towards Increasing Good Actions in Later Part of Life

    By Imaam Yahyaa Ibn Sharaf an-Nawawi






    Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta`aala, the Exalted, says:



    "Did We not give you lives long enough, so that whosoever would receive admonition, - could receive it? And the warner came to you.'' (35:37)

    Ibn`Abbas and others said that "long enough'' in the verse means sixty years. The Hadeeth which follows supports this. Others said it means eighteen years; Al-Hasan Al-Basri, Al-Kalbi and Masruq said it means forty years, it has also been reported by Ibn Abbas and others that whenever the people of Al-Madeenah turned forty years of age, they would devote themselves completely to worship. "Long enough'' in the verse has also been interpreted to mean the age of puberty. Ibn`Abbas and the majority of Muslim scholars said that the "warner'' in the verse refers to the Prophet Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam. `Ikrimah bin`Umaiyyah and others interpreted this word as the grayness or whiteness of hair". Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta`aala knows better.

    112. Aboo Hurayrah (radhiallaahu` anhu) reported: The Prophet Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam said, "Allaah excuses and grants forgiveness to a person until he attains the age of sixty years". [Al-Bukhari]

    Commentary:
    1. This Hadeeth makes it evident that Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta`aala does not punish any individual or nation without warning them first.

    2. The second point is that a person who is given sixty years of life and yet he neglects the obligations of Faith, will have no excuse.

    3. After the age of sixty years, one must not neglect his religious obligations because then one is closer to death. Although one may die even at a young age, in youth one is still hopeful of life. After crossing the age of sixty, to hope for longer age, while leading a sinful life and defying Divine injunctions constitute a disastrous conduct. May Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta`aala save us from doing so.

    113. Ibn`Abbas (radhiallaahu` anhu) said: `Umar (radhiallaahu` anhu) used to make me sit with the noble elderly men who had participated in the battle of Badr. Some of them disliked it and said to`Umar: "Why do you bring in this boy to sit with us when we have sons like him?'' `Umar replied: "Because of the status he has, which you already know about (i.e., belongs to the source of knowledge and the house of the Prophet Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam).'' One day,`Umar called me and seated me in the gathering of those people; and I think that he called me just to show them (of my religious knowledge).` Umar then questioned them (in my presence). "How do you interpret the aayah of Allaah: `When there comes the Help of Allaah (to you, O Muhammad against your enemies) and the Conquest (of Makkah).''' Someone said that when Allaah's Help and the Conquest (of Makkah) came to us, we were called upon to celebrate the Praise of Allaah and ask for His forgiveness. Some others remained silent and did not utter a word. Thereupon`Umar asked me: "Ibn`Abbas! Do you say the same.'' I replied: "No". He said: "What do you say then?'' I replied: "That is the sign of the Prophet Sall Allaahu`alayhi wa sallam's death about which he had been informed. Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta`aala, the Exalted, says:

    'When there comes the help of Allaah (to you, O Muhammad against your enemies) and the Conquest (of Makkah)'.

    So declare the remoteness of your Rabb from every imperfection, and ask for His forgiveness. Verily, He is the One Who accepts the repentance and Who forgives".

    On that`Umar (radhiallaahu` anhu) said: "I do not know anything about it other than what you have said". [Al-Bukhari]

    Commentary:
    1. This value of man does not go with the length of age but with that of intellect, intelligence, knowledge and consciousness. For this reason, a young boy can have precedence and preference over the elders due to his clear understanding and vast knowledge.

    2. When a person gets closer to death, he must devote himself more and more to the praise and glorification of Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta`aala and beg pardon from Him.

    114. `Aishah (radhiallaahu` anha) said: After the revelation of (the Soorah) "When the Help of Allaah comes (to you, O Muhammad against your enemies) and the Conquest (of Makkah)'' (110:1), the Messenger of Allaah Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam used to recite in every prayer: "Subhaanaka Rabbaana wa bihamdika, Allaahum-maghfir li (Far removed You are from every imperfection, our Rabb, and all praise is for You, forgive me, O Allaah)". [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

    Another narration is: The Messenger of Allaah Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam recited frequently in bowing and prostration: "Subhanaka Rabbaana wa bihamdika, Allaahum-maghfir li. (Far removed You are from every imperfection, our Rabb, and all praise is for You, forgive me, O Allaah)". He elucidated that it has been commanded in the Noble Qur`aan to recite: "So glorify the Praises of your Rabb, and ask for His forgiveness. Verily, He is the One Who accepts the repentance and Who forgives". (110:1) And he (the Messenger of Allaah Sall Allaahu`alayhi wa sallam) acted upon it.

    According to the narration in Muslim, the Messenger of Allaah Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam frequently recited these words just before he passed away: "Subhaanaka Rabbaana wa bihamdika. Astaghfiruka wa atubu ilaika.'' I (`Aishah (radhiallaahu` anha) asked him: "O Messenger of Allaah! What are these new words which I hear from you repeatedly.' ' He replied, "A sign has been appointed for me relating to my people that I should repeat these words at the sight of that sign". Then he recited Soorat An-Nasr.

    Another narration in Muslim related from`Aishah (radhiallaahu` anha) is: The Messenger of Allaah Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam often recited, "Glory be to Allaah and praise be to Him; I seek forgiveness of Allaah and turn to Him in repentance.' ' I said to him: "O Messenger of Allaah, I hear you recite frequently: `O Allaah, You are free from every imperfection our Rabb and all praise is for You; I seek forgiveness of Allaah and turn to Him in repentance.' '' He replied, "My Rabb has informed me that I would soon see a sign regarding my people, whenever I see it, I repeat this statement more often (of His Glorification and Praise and beg pardon of Him and turn to Him). Now I have witnessed the sign. The revelation of Soorat An-Nasr and the victory is the conquest of Makkah.''

    "When there comes the Help of Allaah (to you, O Muhammad against your enemies) and the Conquest (of Makkah). And you see that the people enter Allaah's religion (Islam) in crowds. So glorify the Praises of your Rabb, and ask His forgiveness. Verily, He is the One Who accepts the repentance and Who forgives.'' (110:1-3)

    Commentary:
    1. Acceptance and approval of reciting the words`Subhaanaka Rabbaana wa bihamdika, Allaahum-maghfirli' in Rukoo` and Sujood respectively, instead of the words`Subhaana Rabbiyal-Azeem' and `Subhaana Rabbiyal-A`la' .

    2. One must express his gratitude to Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta`aala whenever he receives a blessing from Him.

    115. Anas (radhiallaahu` anhu) said: Allaah the Rabb of honour and glory sent Revelation to His Messenger Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam more frequently before his death than at any other time. [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

    Commentary: During the last days of the Prophet Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam the Abundance of Wahy (Revelation) was an indication that he was about to leave this world.

    116. Jabir (radhiallaahu` anhu) said: The Prophet Sall Allaah`alayhi wa sallam said, "Every one will be raised in the condition in which he dies". [Muslim]

    Commentary: This Hadeeth has a meaning similar to the one quoted at another place which signifies that if a person dies performing good deeds, he will have a good end; and the one who dies in misdeeds, he will come to a bad end. It is, therefore, necessary that one should always avoid disobedience of Divine injunctions, especially in old age and illness because one may fall in the clutches of death at any time.
