  1. True Iman is life to the soul and a source of happinessThe soul&"s contentment is attained only through belief in Allah(mighty and majestic is He). An unbelieving soul remains insecure, scared, lost and weak, with no stability. The only belief that leads to deliverance is the belief in Allah. It means the firm ratification that Allah is the Lord of everything, the King and Creator of everything, and He alone is worthy to be singled out for worship in Salah (prayers), Sawm (fasting), Du&"aa (supplication), when having hope and fear, and being humble and submissive. He (mighty and majestic is He) alone has all the perfect attributes, being exalted from any deficiency or defect.Iman in Allah is the light that guides to justice, freedom and knowledge. It is the light that guides to the straight path; the light that leads us to spiritual tranquility and security.Belief in Allah includes belief in His angels, scriptures, messengers, the Last Day and fate, whether good or evil. This belief is the origin of human happiness. It is the Jannah of the believer in this world and leads him, Allah Willing, to the Jannah of the Hereafter.Iman from the religious point of view means: “Believing with the heart and at the same time expressing that belief with the tongue&"If this is realized, then it should be known that the bases upon which Allah accepts our deeds is Iman. Allah (mighty and majestic is He) says: &"So whoever does righteous deeds while he is a believer&" (Al-Anbiyâ&": 94). Source:Islamkingdom
  2. 1- He evaluates the merchandise with him according to its present worth. 2- He adds whatever currency he has to this, whether this is for business or otherwise.3- He adds whatever money he has loaned and has been guaranteed of its settlement.4- He subtracts from this sum the amount he owes.5- He then pays Zakah on whatever is left and this is one-fourth of a tenth or 2.5%.- Compulsory Zakah is (the value of commercial goods + currencies + expected/ guaranteed returns on monies loaned – the money which the trader owes) x payable Zakah of 2.5%.- In order to calculate Zakah on trade, the assets upon which Zakah is payable are inventoried and estimated on the day their Zakah is due, by using the statement of the financial position- the budget - regardless of the presence of profit or loss in the profit and loss account.- Materials used for packaging are not estimated alone if they were not bought for the sole intention of being sold individually. If, however, they were used to sell trade goods, then they should be estimated if they increase the value of those goods, such as special bags (packagings that are used to store the trade goods in etc). But if they do not increase the value, as for instance plain paper bags, then they are not included in the evaluation.- The evaluation for each trader - whether a wholesaler or a retailer - is according to the price with which he can usually purchase the goods at the end of the Hawl (i.e. one Hijri year; 1 year Hijri = 354.5 days) i.e. the replacement value, which is different from the sale price (the market value), the historical cost (cost at the time of purchase) and the book value.[ Refer to: Recommendations and decisions of the Seventh Symposium on Contemporary Zakah Issues 1417 Hijri -1997 Gregorian]- If prices change between the day Zakah is due and the day it is paid, the price considered shall be that of the day it is due, whether the price has increased or decreased.- Zakah of transferred goods before taking possession of them is the responsibility of its owner. Ownership of the purchased goods is realized according to how or where they are received. These purchased goods which are on their way, if purchased, for example, on the basis of delivery at the port of the seller, it enters into the buyer’s ownership once it is delivered to the shipper. But if it was purchased on the basis of delivery in the port of the buyer, it enters into ownership upon reaching the port of arrival.- If the traded money includes different currencies, such as gold or silver, it should be estimated to decide on the amount that must be paid in the currency in which the merchant trades to evaluate his trade goods according to the prices prevailing on the day the Zakah is due.- The Zakah on trade goods that the buyer pays for in advance, but does not take immediate possession of, is not obligatory for the buyer before taking possession of them, but it is still due from the seller. know zakat al mal in islamkingdom source:Islamkingdom
  3. 1-All of Allah&"s Names and Attributes are husna (beautiful). Allah says: &"To Allah belong the most beautiful names&" (Al-A&"râf: 180). Allah introduced His Supreme self to us so that we can worship, glorify, love, fear and pray to him. &"There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing&" (Ash-Shûra: 11). 2-The Most Beautiful Names and Supreme Attributes of Allah are authenticated from two major sources: the Book of Allah, the Qur&"an, and the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him), and nothing else beside them. So we attribute to Allah the names and attributes that Allah the Exalted and His Prophet (peace be upon him) attributed to Him, and we say that He does not possess the attributes which Allah and His Prophet told us He does not possess but at the same time affirm that the perfect form of its exact opposite is attributed Allah. As for any names or attributes of Allah which have not been attributed to Him, or for which Allah or the Prophet did not state that He does not possess, it is compulsory to refrain from mentioning them - so we cannot attribute to Allah what has not been authentically attributed to Him, or state that He does not possess any attribute which has not been authentically stated that He does not possess. Pertaining to the meaning of each name and attribute which anybody has explained, it must be considered if the explanation is true and befits Allah (mighty and majestic is He). If it is found that the explanation is true and befits the majesty of Allah then it is accepted, but if not then it is rejected. 3-Any discussion about the Supreme Attributes of Allah has the same problem as a discussion about Him (mighty and majestic is He). This is because just as we do not know the nature of the Sacred Essence, we do not know the true nature of the Supreme Attributes, but we still firmly believe and recognize them without distorting, nullifying, changing or likening them to His creation. 4-The Beautiful Names and Supreme Attributes of Allah have literal and not metaphoric or ambiguous meanings. They indicate the Essence of Allah and His Attributes of Perfection, such as: Al-Qadr (the All-Capable), Al-&"Aleem (the All-Knowing), Al--Hakeem (the All-Wise), Al-Samea&" (the All- Hearing) and Al-Baseer (the All-Seeing). All of these names and attributes indicate the Essence of Allah and what that Essence contains regarding capability, knowledge, wisdom, hearing and sight. 5-When we deny that Allah (mighty and majestic is He) has any deficiencies, we do this without denying any of His Attributes. And denying that Allah has any deficiencies covers all types of deficiencies in general (without enumerating any particular defect), while affirming His perfection refers to the perfection in every detail of every Name and Attribute (and to affirming every single attribute). Allah the Exalted says: &"There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing&" (Ash-Shûra: 11). 6-Iman in Allah&"s Beautiful Names: Iman in Allah&"s Names and the Attributes included in the Names requires Iman in the effect that is related to each name. The Name of Allah Ar-Raheem (the Most Compassionate) includes the attribute of Rahma (compassion) which indicates that Allah is Raheem (Compassionate) towards His slaves. Here are some important observations that help us understand Allah&"s Beautiful Names and Supreme Attributes: 1-The names and attributes are not limited to a certain number. It is mentioned in the Hadeeth below that: &"I invoke you by every Name that You called Yourself by, sent down in Your Book, taught to any of Your creatures, or kept with You in the knowledge of the unseen that is with You&" (Narrated by Ahmad). 2-Some of the Beautiful Names and Supreme Attributes of Allah are specifically related to Allah and are not shared by anyone or anything else (in any degree), and it is not permissible to use such names and attributes except with Allah, such as: Allah, Al-Rahman (the Most Merciful). Other names and attributes can be used to describe others- though of course when the names and attributes are ascribed to Allah they are complete and in the most perfect form, but when they are used to describe His creation they refer to them having the attribute to only a limited degree. 3-Attributes are derived from the Names of Allah. Each name includes an attribute, but no names are derived from the attributes. We can say, for instance, that Allah gets angry, but we cannot say that He is Al-Ghadoub (The Most Angry), Exalted and Glorified is He. Source: Islamkingdom

    Ramadan the greatest month ever Ramadan and Qur'an, they are the best combination ever, Ramadan is the best time of a year to start and finish Qur'an with love and excitement, in this holy month there are a lot of good deeds could be done by Muslims to help others like serving Iftar and suhoor to the needy at rahman tables everywhere, Ramadan is a great opportunity for Muslims everywhere to redeem themselves and ask Allah for forgiveness about any wrongs or bad deeds they've done.
