A Believer's Guide to Zakat

Zakat an obligatory almsgiving is one of the five pillars of Islam. The importance of this Islamic obligation is highlighted by the fact that it is directly linked to the ritual prayer (salat) by Allah in the Qur'an on thirty-two occasions. Tragically it has become something of a fallen pillar amongst Muslims today. This treatise elucidates the evidences for its importance and warnings about its negligence from the Qur'an and Hadith. Moreover the essential legal rulings - such as who must pay on what how when and to whom - are explained clearly and comprehensively so that even a reader with no great background in Islamic law will understand the instructions. Finally it also contains the correct etiquette that should be observed by both the one paying the zakat and the one receiving it.

Shaykh Hisham Burhani (1932-2014) was a Syrian scholar who was an expert in the Hanafi legal school as well as a spiritual guide (murshid) in the Shadhili order. He was raised in the company of leading scholars in particular his father Shaykh Muhammad Sa'id Burhanii and went on to be a lecturer in the Faculty of Shariah at the University of Damascus where he taught Islamic law (fiqh) fundamentals of Islamic law (usul al-fiqh) and Qur'anic exegesis (tafsir). While living in the United Arab Emirates in the 1980s he represented the UAE in various roles at the Islamic Jurisprudence Council in Jeddah Saudi Arabia.
