The Spirit of Zakat

“Such ones who fulfill their Covenant with their Lord and they do not violate the trust.

Such ones will reap the good reward of the final abode”. (Quran 13:20-22) وَالَّذِينَ صَبَرُوا ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ رَبِّهِمْ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَأَنفَقُوا مِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً وَيَدْرَءُونَ بِالْحَسَنَةِ السَّيِّئَةَ Friday Khutba by Shaykh Al-Akili on Friday June 9th 2017 C.E. at…
