Answer to Question: In the Absence of the Islamic State to whom the Zakat should be Paid?

Ameer's Q & A: Gaps in Conduct do not Divest a Muslim from his Islamic Aqeedah

It came in the book, The Islamic Personality, Volume I that there are actions that contradict the Aqeedah that Muslims do, but they do not divest them from the Aqeedah, and it was clarified that the Muslim may inadvertently fail to associate his concepts with his Aqeedah (creed) or he may be ignorant of the contradiction between such concepts and his Aqeedah or his Islamic Shakhsiyya (personality) or Shaytān (Satan) may influence his heart and thus cause him to distance himself from this Aqeedah in one of his acts...

Answer to Question : Al-Hawl

Question:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuhu,

Al-Hawl is not a year, it is different to a year, it is ten months and a half, and this is the Hawl for Allah’s (swt) saying: )وَحَمْلُهُ وَفِصَالُهُ ثَلَاثُونَ شَهْرًا(“…and his gestation and weaning [period] is thirty months” [Al-Ahqaf: 15]

If we subtract nine months of pregnancy, then we will be left with 21 months, i.e. every Hawl is ten months and a half, this is also for the saying of Allah (swt):)يُرْضِعْنَ أَوْلَادَهُنَّ حَوْلَيْنِ كَامِلَيْنِ(“Mothers may breastfeed their children two complete years” [Al-Baqara: 233].

That is 21 months after the delivery… Therefore Zakat is due every ten and a half months, which means every 7 years we give Zakat 8 times.
