Zakat, an obligatory almsgiving, is one of the five pillars of Islam. The importance of this Islamic obligation is highlighted by the fact that it is directly linked to the ritual prayer (salaat) by Allah in the Qur'an on thirty-two occasions.
Tragically, it has become something of a fallen pillar amongst Muslims today. This treatise elucidates the evidences for its importance and warnings about its negligence from the Qur'an and Hadith. Moreover; the essential legal rulings - such as who must pay, on what, how, when and to whom - are explained clearly and comprehensively, so that even a reader with no great background in Islamic law will understand the instructions.
Finally, it also contains the correct etiquette that should be observed by both the one paying the zakat and the one receiving it.
Shaykh Hisham Burhani ( 1932-20 14) was a Syrian scholar who was an expert in the Hanafi legal school, as well as a spiritual guide (murshid) in the Shadhili order. He was raised in the company of leading scholars, in particular his father Shaykh Muhammad Sa'id Burhani, and went on to be a lecturer in the Faculty of Shariah at the University of Damascus, where he taught Islamic law (fiqh), fundamentals of Islamic law (usul al-fiqh) and Qur'anic exegesis (tafsir). While living in the United Arab Emirates in the 1980s, he represented the UAE in various roles at the Islamic Jurisprudence Council in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

(w)holehearted is a play on words to emphasize the idea of appearing whole and intact as a human being, but with fissures, scars, and brokenness peeking through from behind the tough exterior. it is the facade that many of us peruse our lives carrying, often neglecting our pain, our mental health, and most importantly, the way we are more prone to hurting others when we lack this self-awareness. (w)holehearted seeks to encompass as many stories as possible, touching on several topics, namely, spirituality, feminism, colorism, domestic violence, intersectionality, mental health and more. it aims to depict that anyone with the darkest past and pitfalls can still save themselves from drowning in the difficulties that not only plague our world, but also plague our hearts.
