Course Description

Fiqh of Fasting and Zakah
This class will cover the Islamic Law behind fasting as well as giving Zakat. Once a year, Allah obligates us to discharge 2.5% of our excess wealth to the needy. But how do I calculate my Zakah? What defines ‘excess wealth’? Whom can I give it to? How much money do I need to possess in order for Zakah to be obligatory on me? This class will cover the principles and rulings of Zakah in detail in a systematic manner. Additionally, this class will cover the Fiqh of Fasting. Fasting was ordained by Allah ﷻ upon us in order for us to be a people of consciousness (Taqwa). A fast that is observed with all the rulings implemented is a key ingredient to attaining Taqwa. Students will study the principles and rulings of fasting in detail. We will cover the do’s and don’ts of fasting, the types of fast, what nullifies the fast, how to make up missed fasts, contemporary Fiqh issues, and more.
