Who is Eligible For Zakat - Zakat Kis Ko Dene Ka Hukam Hai




According to Quran, Who is eligible for Zakah 
Zakat kis ko dene ka hukam hai - Quran ke Mutabiq

إِنَّمَا الصَّدَقاتُ لِلفُقَراءِ وَالمَساكينِ وَالعامِلينَ عَلَيها وَالمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلوبُهُم وَفِي الرِّقابِ وَالغارِمينَ وَفي سَبيلِ اللَّهِ وَابنِ السَّبيلِ ۖ فَريضَةً مِنَ اللَّهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَليمٌ حَكيمٌ

Zakah expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakah] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler - an obligation [imposed] by Allah . And Allah is Knowing and Wise.

بیشک صدقات (زکوٰۃ) محض غریبوں اور محتاجوں اور ان کی وصولی پر مقرر کئے گئے کارکنوں اور ایسے لوگوں کے لئے ہیں جن کے دلوں میں اسلام کی الفت پیدا کرنا مقصود ہو اور (مزید یہ کہ) انسانی گردنوں کو (غلامی کی زندگی سے) آزاد کرانے میں اور قرض داروں کے بوجھ اتارنے میں اور اللہ کی راہ میں (جہاد کرنے والوں پر) اور مسافروں پر (زکوٰۃ کا خرچ کیا جانا حق ہے)۔ یہ (سب) اللہ کی طرف سے فرض کیا گیا ہے، اور اللہ خوب جاننے والا بڑی حکمت والا ہے،

Ref: Surah Tawbah - Verse Number 60

Laho Garam Rakhnye Ka Hai Ik Bahana


مٹی کے برتنوں سے اسٹیل اور پلاسٹک کے برتنوں تک اور پھر کینسر کے خوف سے دوبارہ مٹی کے برتنوں تک آجانا

انگوٹھا چھاپی سے پڑھ لکھ کر دستخطوں (Signatures) پر اور پھر آخرکارانگوٹھا چھاپی (Thumb Scanning) پر آجانا

پھٹے ہوئے سادہ کپڑوں سے صاف ستھرے اور استری شدہ کپڑوں پر اور پھر فیشن کے نام پر اپنی پینٹیں پھاڑلینا

زیادہ مشقت والی زندگی سے گھبراکر پڑھنا لکھنا اور پھر پی ایچ ڈی کرکے واکنگ ٹریک (Walking Track) پر پسینے بہانا

قدرتی غذاؤں سے پراسس شدہ کھانوں (Canned Food) پر اور پھر بیماریوں سے بچنے کے لئے دوبارہ قدرتی کھانوں (Organic Foods) پر آجانا

پرانی اور سادہ چیزیں استعمال کرکے ناپائدار برانڈڈ (Branded) آئٹمز پر اور آخر کار جی بھرجانے پر پھر (Antiques) پر اِترانا

بچوں کو جراثیم سے ڈراکر مٹی میں کھیلنے سے روکنا اور پھر گھر میں بند کرکے پھسڈی بنانا اور ہوش آنے پر دوبارہ قوتِ مدافعت (Immunity) بڑھانے کے نام پر مٹی سے کھلانا

لہو گرم رکھنے کا ہے اک بہانہ ۔ ۔ ۔ ۔
