Is Fasting Enough?

Muslims generally feel that so long as they go hungry during Ramadan they have fulfilled Allah’s Command. But linked to fasting is Zakat or giving 2.5 percent of savings to the poor and needy. And yet some Muslims use all manner of tricks to avoid having to pay Zakat. Fasting is meant to make us feel the way those who don’t have money to buy food, feel. If we are not going to give Zakat so that hungry can buy food then our fasting is meaningless.

The Command of Education

Education being a command of Allah and has been made incumbent on all muslims male and female by the Holy Prophet. In the light of this why was Malala shot? Why is this happening today? We should not associate this incident with the Holy Quran or Islam but should distinguish it from Culture.

Where is the Muslim Ummah going in terms of Education?
