This week we reviewed the homework which was to learn ayat al kursi at home with their parents. Most of the students did not do this so if the parents can make an effort to teach them it so they can come prepared this week. We then continued to discuss dhikr and why it is important. Theyre homework is to try and say some of the daily athkar at least once daily (subhanallah wa bihamdihi subhannallah al atheem, astughfurallahah, la illaha illa Allahu wahdahu la sharika la lahul mulk wa lahul hamd wa huwa ala kulla shay’in qadeer).
We then began the topic of zakat and sadaqa and the difference. We talked about the root word of sadaqa being sidq or sincerity and it necessitating sincerity only for Allah sw when giving charity. We also discussed the hadith explaining charity is of many kinds:
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Charity is prescribed for each descendant of Adam every day the sun rises.” He was then asked: “From what do we give charity every day?” The Prophet answered: “The doors of goodness are many…enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing harm from the road, listening to the deaf, leading the blind, guiding one to the object of his need, hurrying with the strength of one’s legs to one in sorrow who is asking for help, and supporting the feeble with the strength of one’s arms–all of these are charity prescribed for you.” He also said: “Your smile for your brother is charity.” Narrated by Tirmidhi
