Assalamu Olaikum. I am from Bangladesh. I
have following questions : 1. This year me,
my wife & 8 years old daughter have planned
to perform Hajj,Inshallah. For this purpose
from my property worth about 10,00,000.00
I have to spend near about 7,00,000.00 taka
(to give Hajj Agency). Remaining money is
gold & inerest gained from Bank. How much
money I have to pay for Zakat this
year,please clarify the matter in according of
Quran & Sunnah. 2. Please inform me the
rulings of performing Funeral (Janaza)
prayer, in according of Quran & Sunnah. Not
as an Imam. 3. Which is better Zikr or
reciting Ayah of surah ? 4. In our country
some people pray 20 rakah Tarawih prayer,
some are 8 and some are 12 rakah. Which is
correct ? 5. Can I give Zakat and charity
money to my wives own sister, who is a
widow & not well off ? 6. I dislike getting
interest, but, I had some bank
accounts,saving certificates which give
interest. Now my question is how I can
dispose the interest money ? Who will be
given priority in this case ? 7. My mother age
75 who has been suffering from multiple
organ disorder for several years, can not
keep fast for several,what is the ruling about
her according to Quran & Sunnah ? Allah

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His slave and Messenger.
You are obliged to pay Zakat (which is 2.5%)
from your money if a whole lunar year
elapses and if it reaches the Nisaab(i.e. the
minimum amount liable for Zakat).

Therefore, if a whole lunar year elapsed on
the money which you possessed before
paying the Hajj agency, then you are obliged
to pay Zakat on all your money including the
money which you will pay to the Hajj agency,
i.e. you pay 2.5% from all your money.
However, if a whole lunar year elapsed on
the money which you possessed after paying
the Hajj agency, then you should only pay
the Zakat on the remaining money in
addition to all other gold and silver and
tradable items you own, with the exception
of the interests as there is no Zakat on it
because interests are forbidden money which
must be disposed of in its totality by
spending it in charity.
As regards which is better whether it is
reciting the mention of Allah or reciting the
Quran, then reciting the Quran is a form of
mentioning Allah, and reciting it is the best
form of mentioning Allah because a reciter
of the Quran gets one reward for each letter
he recites, and each reward is multiplied
tenfold as reported from the Prophet .

However, in some cases, mentioning Allah
could be better than reciting the Quran, for
instance reciting the legislated mention of
Allah after the obligatory prayers is better
than reciting the Quran, and repeating the
words of the Athaan (the call for the prayer)
after the Muaththin is better than reciting
the Quran. Therefore, we advise you to vary
the forms of mentioning Allah which are
reported from the Prophet according to
the time when these are legislated to be said,
but you should allocate a larger time for the
recitation of the Quran, while pondering
over it and trying to understand its meaning.
The Quran is the best form of mentioning
Allah; it comforts one's heart and encourages
a person to do good, and from it one learns
what is lawful and what is forbidden.

With regard to paying the Zakat to your
sister in-law, then you are permitted to give
Zakat to her if she is poor and destitute.
Concerning the disease of your mother, if it
is a chronic disease and she is unable to fast,
then she may break the fast and feed a poor
person on each day she breaks the fast.
Allah Knows best.
