    Charity in Islam

    Assa-la-malikum I was just wondering if you all can share your knowledge about the fact that in Islam it is said that when one gives chairty not to boost about it or seek recognition. So in doing so here in States we get a donation tax reciept to use in our taxes? Do you feel this defeats the purpose of "giving" when you will get it back in taxes or it still stands a a well given chairty... I found the following on this both giving openly and secretly but I wanted to know what everyone elses opnion is? Giving in secret Allah says, "If you give alms openly, it is well, and if you hide it and give it to the poor, it is better for you" (Qur'an 2:271). For a Muslim, charity is given to stave off miserliness and to draw nearer to Allah, if instead the donor seeks fame, then the act of charity becomes worthless. Giving in secret is often better for the donor since it protects against insincerity, and it is better for the recipient as it maintains his dignity. Giving openly Sometimes it is better to give charity publicly, so that others will also do the same. However, you must be on guard against any hypocritical notions. Another danger of this is offending the dignity of the poor person. It may be hurtful to him to be seen to be needy. Scholars say that if someone is asking for charity publicly, there is no need to worry about offending him by also giving publicly.[/font

    Witir Prayers

    Assal-ma-likum, My fellow muslim brothers and sisters. There is so much out there about how to pray Witir namaz and it is all different. My main question is after the second rakat one stands up reads Alam Sharif then a surah then says Allah hu Akbar then Dua Qunoot or another dua and goes into Ruku then sajda or straight into sajada?

    Islamic Law and Four Wives

    Can anyone give me the laws behind muslim men marrying four wives? What are their obligations? What right does the first wife have? We all know from Prophet Muhammad's time(PBUH) that why their was a logical reasoning behind social issues and the nature of the polygamous marriage. Please if you have information from history documenting these logics or you know what the laws are today in this century about having four wives... Please share
