Importance of Zakat


  Fazayil –fazilat of (Benefits and importance) the sacred zakat:

1. Zakat is one of the five pillars of Deen (religion) Islam.

بُنِيَ الإِسْلاَمُ عَلَى خَمْسٍ: شَهَادَةِ أَنْ لاَ إلهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّداً رَسُولُ اللهِ، وَإقَامِ الصَّلاَةِ، وَإيْتَاءِ الزَّكَاةِ، وَحَجِّ الْبَيْتِ، وَصَوْمِ رَمَضَانَ

2.Zakat is directly related to Eemaan (belief):

 اِنَّ الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ وَاَقَامُوْا الصَّلٰوةَ وَاٰتَوُ ا الزَّكٰوةَ لَهُمْ اَجْرُهُمْ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ.

“Certainly those who have conceived Emaan, performed ‘Amilus Swalehaat (good/ righteous deeds), performed Swalaat and have paid zakat, they will have rewards from their Rob Allah Subh’anu Wa ta’alaa. “(The sacred Baqara Shareef: The sacred Ayat Shareef no: 277)”

3. To pay zakat is Far’d (mandatory):

 وَأَقِيْمُوْا الصَّلَاةَ وَاٰتُوْا الزَّكَاةَ وَمَا تُقَدِّمُوْا لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ مِّنْ خَيْرٍ تَجِدُوْهُ عِندَ اللهِ اِنَّ اللهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُوْنَ بَصِيرٌ

“You do performed Swalaat, pay zakat. And whatever you send beforehand for yourself from the good works. Certainly, the rewards of that are kept with Allah Pak. Surely, Allah Pak watches over whatever you do.”(The sacred Baqara Shareef: 110)

  Merits for paying zakat/Demerits of ignoring zakat:

 قَالَ حَضْرَتْ عُمَرُ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ “مَا تَلَفَ مَالٌ فِـىْ بَرٍّ وَلَا بَحْرٍ اِلَّا بِحَبْسِ الزَّكَاةِ”. (رواه الطبرانى فى الـمعجم الأوسط)

• ‘Hadrwat Omar Ibnul Khattab ‘Alaihis Salaam narrates, Noor-e Mujassam, Habeebullah Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa-sallam says, ‘‘Any properties get damaged whether on lands or on waters are only for the reason of ignoring the zakat.’’ (The Sacred Tabarani Shareef).

• It is also said in the Hadee’s Shareef-‘‘One who does not pay zakat, all his Swalaat (prayers) are unaccepted.’’(The Bukhari Shareef).

• If zakat is not paid, the original wealth becomes harwaam and any single piece of flesh growing from haram wealth (invalid way) does not go to Jannat, rather will go to Jahannam.
