Ramadan is approaching and
what a blessed month this is; it is
a time when all our good deeds
are multiplied as well as our bad
deeds. This is the blessed time
when the Quran was revealed to
our beloved prophet (saw) and
our beautiful way of life Islam
was established. As many of us
already know Islam is established
upon five pillars. Zakat is one of
the five pillars in Islam, and like a
building if one pillar is missing
then the building will fall. Our faith
consists of believing in the one-
ness of Allah (swt), the prayer,
the zakat (purifying charity), the
fast of Ramadan and the Hajj. As
muslims one of the most impor-
tant principles we uphold is the
knowledge that all things belong
to Allah (swt), and that our wealth
only belongs to us as a trust from
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Universe, peace and blessings of Allah be upon His Beloved, the Final
Prophet Muhammad, upon whom be eternal and exalted blessings, and on his Family and on his Companions,
may Allah be pleased with them all.
