Fasting & Charity


 

Fasting and Zakah are two of the five pillars of Islam and are both fardh 'ayn (obligatory on every individual). With Ramadhan so near, every Muslim must take spiritual and academic preparation for it. It is also common for Muslims to choose Ramadan as the ideal month to fulfil the Zakah obligation as their reward is multiplied by paying their Zakah in the holy month of Ramadhan.

 

For every act of worship undertaken by a Muslim there is always an additional obligation: seeking enough knowledge about it so that it is performed correctly. This is known as obligatory knowledge. Just as fasting and Zakah are fardh 'ayn, so too is seeking knowledge about them fardh 'ayn. A fact often not understood or under-emphasised by many Muslims.
