Let’s talk Zakat on Assets:
– 1st, assets you do not pay Zakat on.
– 2nd, assets you do pay Zakat on.
– 3rd, deductions and expenses that lower your Zakat liability.
Every phone call cuts like a knife.
When you’ve lost a loved one, the last thing you want to do is answer the phone or be around someone, but then again the one thing you want most is some normality, so you pick up the phone and open the door. Clarity of mind is something sought after, not something to be expected at this time. Some people call you not knowing, and wonder why or how you can be so despondent or stand-offish to them. Others would call and say with the sensitivity of a schizophrenic Sorry for your loss, but hey you know what can I say Silence from some may be safe, but not sound in the hurting heart. There are though those that actually console, ask real questions, make dua, and most importantly let you know they are there for you. Not that they are in fact physically there, but the sentiment and the short visits are what counts.
