Giving Zakah (obligatory charity) to a Sick Person for Treatment – Shaykh Al-Uthaymīn

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Uthaymīn was asked about the permissibility of giving zakah to a person for  medical treatment.

He answered (rahimahullāh):

A person’s need for treatment, is an urgent need. Therefore if we find an ill person who needs treatment and he does not have money to pay for the treatment; then there is no problem in giving him zakah (obligatory charity). Because the intent of it (zakah) is the removal of need.


Shaykh Uthaymīn Majmū’ Fatāwa wa Rasā’il Vol. 18 Pg.342

What Are the Signs of a Responsive Heart and Unresponsive Heart? Shaykh Uthaymīn

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Uthaymīn was asked:

What are the signs of a responsive heart? And the signs of an unresponsive heart?

Shaykh Uthaymīn:
A sign of a responsive heart, is that it humbles itself to the remembrance of Allāh.

And the sign of an unresponsive heart is that it is not affected by what it hears, from the verses of Allah.

Rejecting The Truth – Shaykh Uthaymīn

Shaykh Uthaymīn (rahimahullaah) explained the outcome for those who reject the truth, based on the tafsir of the following verse:

بَلْ كَذَّبُوا بِالْحَقِّ لَمَّا جَاءَهُمْ فَهُمْ فِي أَمْرٍ مَرِيجٍ

‏Nay, but they have denied the truth (this Qurān) when it has come to them, so they are in a confused state (can not differentiate between right and wrong).
‏Sura Qāf: 5

Shaykh Uthaymīn:

“Likewise every person who rejects the truth the first time, then he should know that he will be trialed with doubts and uncertainty in accepting the truth in the future. Therefore it is obligatory upon us when we hear that this thing is the truth, that we say: “we hear and obey.”

This will be an exciting chance for people to finally break the ice and dive into the language; studying it in an immersive classroom. Ibaanah Arabic is known for giving students the confidence to converse in the language by bringing it to the front of studies.

The Ibaanah program has been developed to provide students with the necessary foundation and training needed to enhance rapid learning along with gradual skill building techniques. The focus of the program is to provide a complete foundation in the Arabic language, equipping students with all the necessary components for understanding and usage.

This course will aid the student in many aspects of their religion; it will provide the student with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the Quran, Sunnah, increase khushoo during the prayer, be able to listen to Arabic lectures, attend sittings of knowledge held by the Scholars and understand, read both secular and religious texts (modern and classical) with strong comprehension, write and speak correctly, applying the principles he/she has studied.

[48] Excerpts from Shaikh Rabee’s Book Titled ‘Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’ – [A Brief Reminder to The Taa’ifatul Mansoorah]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

It is obligated on the Taa’ifatul Mansoorah [i.e. the aided group] – those whom Allaah’s Messenger gave glad tidings that they will remain [upon truth] and will be aided, neither harmed by those who betray them nor by those who oppose them till the end of time – to establish [sound] brotherhood for the sake of Allaah, co-operate upon righteousness and piety, roll up their sleeves and get to work, so that this great status is maintained, which is that they will be manifest upon the truth – neither harmed by those who betray them nor by those who oppose them. And acquaintance with the truth cannot be [reached] except by way of the knowledge inherited from the Prophets and Messengers [alayhimus salaam], and from the seal of the Prophets [i.e. the Messenger Muhammad (sallal laahu alayhi wasallam)]. The scholars are the inheritors of the [knowledge left behind by] the Prophets in calling to the path of Allaah, [in propagating] Allaah’s Message to [mankind], and in enjoining good and forbidding evil. [Marhaban Yaa Taalibal Ilm’ page 200. abridged and slightly paraphrased]
