Q & A on Fiqh of Transactions

Fiqh of transactions is one of the topics in Islamic jurisprudence. Learning fiqh of transactions is exciting. It teaches us on how to make a ‘real deal’ with people in daily life activities such as buying, selling, leasing, sharing etc.

Umar Ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

“No one should sell in our markets except one who has understanding in the religion.” [Al-Tirmidhi]

Simpanan Shariah by EPF

article-slider-SIMPANAN-SHARIAH-BY-EPF-011-e1470303453928

[The original posting can be found at: http://alnaqiy.com/article/simpanan-shariah-by-epf/]

The Employees Provident Fund’s (EPF) new Shariah-compliant savings scheme will be open for registration on August 8, 2016.

The EPF’s chief executive officer Datuk Shahril Ridza said the retirement fund has allocated an initial RM100bil, which is about 15% of it’s total investment assets of RM681.7bil as at March 2016.

This announcement would be interesting to keep an eye on as it is probable will give impact to the movement of Islamic finance industry, particularly in Malaysia. From consumer’s point of view, should they switch to the Shariah savings scheme or not, since the savings are for their retirement in their senior years. How about the financial planners and industry experts? What do they say on this matter?

Zakah: Islam’s Response to Poverty

Zakah: Islam’s Response to Poverty

[The original posting can be found at: http://alnaqiy.com/article/zakah-islams-response-to-poverty/]

In Islam, zakah is third to the declaration of faith in Allah and His Messenger and the five daily prayers. Islam introduces zakah as a response to social concerns towards the poor and the determination to address poverty.

One of the objectives of zakah distribution is to provide an adequate and suitable standard of living and to help Muslims remain above the level of poverty. It is meant to assist asnaf (recipients) to achieve a better quality of life and in turn become a contributor for the well being of others.

When someone gives zakah, he or she has to ensure that the recipients are one of those who are eligible to receive zakah. There are eight recipients of zakah. Allah defines in Surah al- Tawbah: [click to continue…]

Bahagian Awak, Milik Saya

Susulan daripada artikel sebelum ini, dalam kuliah yang sama, Ustaz menceritakan satu kisah lain. Kisah benar juga.

Satu kisah bagaimana abang sulung memaksa adiknya supaya menerima pembahagian harta pusaka secara sama rata. Adiknya tidak bersetuju, tetapi mengalah dan menerima kerana terpaksa. Akhirnya mereka tidak bertegur sapa selama 3 tahun.

Pada satu hari, abang sulung menghadiri kuliah faraid yang disampaikan oleh Ustaz tersebut dan dia menyedari kesilapannya. Dia meminta nasihat dan Ustaz itu menyarankan supaya pergi meminta maaf dan mengakui kesilapannya yang lalu. Memang susah jika abang sulung hendak pergi meminta maaf kepada adik. Umpama seorang bos yang hendak mengakui kesilapan diri dan meminta maaf kepada kakitangannya. Sanggupkah. Ujar Ustaz itu lagi sambil tersenyum melihat ke arah hadirin.

Tetapi itu yang terjadi. Abang sulung memberanikan diri, pergi berjumpa dengan adiknya dan memohon maaf. Alhamdulillah, adiknya terbuka hati memaafkan abangnya, bahkan dia juga menghalalkan bahagian harta pusaka yang sepatutnya menjadi miliknya dahulu.

Wallahua’lam.
