Zakah is a very important part of Islam. It teaches us to share what we have. It helps us avoid being selfish. "Selfishness" is when a person thinks only about himself or herself, and does not care about others.

 

Fasting for more than 18 hours a day

Source : Dar-Alifta / 17 Jul 2014

Question:

This year in our country, the fasting hours are will last for around 19 hours. How would Muslims fast such long hours?

Answer:

Muslims in countries where the fasting hours are 18 hours or more are to estimate the time for starting and breaking their fast. The principle of estimating fasting hours that extend beyond the normal hours is derived from actual circumstances. It is difficult for a person to fast continuously for 18 hours or more and experts have determined the inability of the human body to tolerate such extended periods of fasting which definitely poses harm. If this is so, it cannot be maintained that harm is the objective of Islamic law.

Allah, the Almighty, created various types of creatures, both visible and invisible.

We can see the sun, the moon, the mountains, the rivers, trees, animals, birds, and fish. Even the minutest creatures that we cannot see with the unaided eye such as germs, bacteria, microbes and the particulates of matter can be seen and recognized through special equipment that magnify them hundreds of times.
