Zakah and fasting
The Zakah & Fasting Programme is part of the Islamic Law Course. It delivers the subject matter in a modern format, utilising mature visual aids and in-depth resources to simplify difficult concepts. The programme focuses on the general principles of Zakah and Fasting from all four canonical schools of Islamic jurisprudence. It builds on the classical discussions pertaining to Zakah & Fasting and deals with modern issues regarding these two areas.
The programme is divided into two key parts:
Zakah: which is divided into the following sections:
- Introduction to Fiqh and Zakah: discussions pertaining to general matters of worship, the hierarchy of matters of worship, the status of Zakah, the importance and virtues of Zakah
- Legal Threshold: the nisab (legal threshold) of objects subject to Zakah such as gold, silver, and merchandise, calculating the modern nisab (legal threshold) of Zakah
- Recipients of charity: upon whom is it obligatory to pay Zakah, who is eligible to receive Zakah
Part 1–2: students will be provided with notes and/or slides and will be expected to prepare from selected materials pertaining to the discussions of Zakah & Fasting.
