When you look at below chart, you can see why the world is full of poverty. Only 2 out of the top 20 billionaires in the world are paying the equivalent of the Zakah!

Why+the+world+is+full+of+poverty.+Why+Zakat+is+one+of+the+Piller+of+Islam.jpg

People try to blame the Creator for injustice and hunger, when we can only blame the selective greed of some humans where wealth is concentrated, as Allah said in His book regarding the wisdom of giving Zakah "كي لَا يَكُوۡنَ دُوۡلَةًۢ بَيۡنَ الۡاَغۡنِيَآءِ مِنۡكُمۡ so that money would not be exclusive with the rich among you," (Surat Alhashr 59:7).

Now imagine only these 20 people paid the Zakah 2.5%, that would be 25 billion. Now calculate this for the entire population of the US, and you will get approximately 375 billion, and divide that over 10 million poor people, and each person gets approximately $3,125 dollars a month!

You might say, why would these rich people bother? When there is less poverty, there is more productivity and less crime, which makes a society more prosperous and happier overall, thus everyone is a winner at the end!

May Allah make us from those who honour the 3rd pillar of Islam, and make us prosperous in this life so we may give more, and in the after with lots of Hasanat. Ameen!

What is Zakat
Zakat is the third of the five Pillar of Islam. Zakat does not refer to charitable gifts given out of kindness or generosity, but to the systematic giving of 2.5% of one's wealth each year to benefit the poor. Zakat must be calculated on the following assets: gold, silver, cash, savings, investments, rental income, business merchandise and profits, shares, securities, and bonds etc. Zakat is not paid on wealth used for living expenses such as clothing, food, housing, transportation, education, etc.

In Arabic, the word zakat means purification, growth, and blessing. Paying zakat is meant to serve as a reminder to be appreciative of the blessings that Allah (SWT) has given, while empowering those who have less.

When the weather turns frightful, outdoor cats seek a warm spot to sleep.

That may be your car engine, top of your wheels or under the hood.

Help save a life by following these simple safety tips if you park outside:

1. Bang on the hood of the car before getting in.
2. Slam your door when you're seated.
3. Honk your horn a few times.
4. Wait a minute to start your vehicle.

Think zillions of times before you sell your phone or give your phone to any repair shop or even to any elite trustable customer service. They can get your data recover even after you have done factory reset and delete your data.

Secrets

Our smartphones are privy to some of our most important secrets. Sensitive business emails, financial details, contact information, and perhaps even very personal photos (first what are such stuff doing on your phone) are not things you want falling into the wrong hands.

Remember

Performing a factory reset nothing more than just a good idea. It certainly not enough that data has been removed.

Remember your data including your personal photos, Google searches, emails, text messages, and contact details can be recovered even after you factory reset, as your data is still not overwritten.

What to do

Follow below four steps to wipe your Android phone, to make sure data is properly gone. (Similar steps can be followed for iPhone)

Step 1: Encrypt your data

The first step is to encrypt your data (If it is not already encrypted or using old Android versions). This option is available built into Android (may not enabled by default). Encryption requires you to enter a PIN or password every time you turn your phone on.

  • Fully charge your phone or keep it plugged into the charger while this process is running, because it can take several hours depending on how much data you have.

    Note: The exact method may be differ slightly from phone to phone, however it will generally be like below

  • Go to Settings > Security > Encrypt phone.

  • Or Go to Settings > Security & location > Advanced > Encryption & credentials and select “Encrypt Phone”

  • Or on Samsung Galaxy, Go to Settings > Lock screen & security > Protect encrypted data

Step 2: Factory Reset

Make sure you have already setup your new phone or that you have anything you want to keep backed up before you do this because it will wipe everything. Once phone has reset, there’s no going easy back. The steps are similar for most Android devices, but some manufacturers like to be different.

  • Go to Settings > Select System > Advanced > Reset options > Select “Reset phone.”

    Note: If you have a PIN or some other security setup, you’ll be asked to enter it. You’ll get another screen asking if you’re sure this is what you want to do. Are you sure? Then hit the “Erase everything” button.

  • Or On a Samsung Galaxy, Go to Settings > General Management > Reset > Factory data reset and then tap Reset device.

  • Or On a Huawei phone, go to Settings > System > Reset > Factory data reset and then tap Reset Phone.

  • Or On a Google Pixel, it’s Settings > System > Advanced > Reset options > Erase all data (factory reset) and then tap Reset phone.

Step 3: Overwriting with junk data

Now final step is to be absolutely certain, by overwriting the encrypted data with junk data and then perform another last factory reset as done in step 2.

  • Simply load a bunch of dummy data onto your phone until the storage is full. A few large movies videos should do the trick.

  • Or Open your camera and keep recording video for hours long (like record open sky or charming birds or beautiful garden) till storage full.

  • Or you can also get an app to do it for you. Install any of these or similar app from Play Store, such as Secure Erase with iShredder 6 or Shreddit.  

Note: Do not use your personal Gmail / Google account, instead create new dummy temporary google account to download these app to overwrite storage, as by using or connecting your actual google account you may accidentally restore data back again on device from Google drive.


Step 4: Final Factory Reset

Once above three steps completed and the data is overwritten by these app or video camera recording or you fill up storage with movies, perform another last factory reset as done in step 2. That’s how you completely wipe your Android phone.


Note: Never sell your SD Cards and Hard Drives, break into pieces and throw it away in garbage, even if they are not working or dead.

(1) ماچس کی تیلی میں سر تو ہوتا ہے پر دماغ نھیں ہوتا اسی لیے زرہ سی رگڑ سے بھڑک تو اٹھتی ہے۔ پر انجام۔۔۔ اپنی ہی آگ میں جل کر خاک ہو جاتی ہے،
*حاسد کا بھی کچھ ایسا ہی حال ہوتا ہے۔*

(2) مینڈک کو چاہے سونے کی بنی کرسی پر ہی بیٹھا دیں پر وہ چھلانگ لگا کر واپس دلدل میں ہی جانا پسند کرتا ہے ۔۔۔
*پس اسی طرح کے کچھ انساں ہوتے ہیں ان کو آپ جتنی مرضی عزت افزائ دیں۔۔۔ پر انھوں نے اپنے سلوک ۔۔ اخلاق ۔۔۔ اپنے عمل برتاؤ سے اپنے آپ کو کم ظرف کر کے ہی رہنا ہوتا ہے*

(3) جنازے میں شامل ہونے کے لیے لوگ دوسرے ملکوں سے بھی آسکتے ہیں ۔۔
*جبکہ فرض نماز کے لیے پاس کی مسجد میں بھی جانا مشکل لگتا ہے*

(4) جب انسان اپنی غلطیوں کا (وکیل) اور دوسروں کی غلطیوں کا (جج) بن جائے تو (فیصلے) نھیں (فاصلے) ہونے لگتے ہیں۔

(5) سب کو خوش رکھنا ایسا ہے جیسے زندہ مینڈکوں کو تولنا ۔ ایک کو بیٹھاو تو دوسرا پھدک پڑتا ہے۔

(6) انسان جسم اور دکھاوی باتوں سے نہیں اپنے اخلاقی عمل سے بڑا ہوتا ہے.

  • As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $300 or $30 watch … both tell the same time.

     

  • Whether we carry a $300 or $30 wallet/handbag ... the amount of money inside is the same.

     

  • Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $10 ... the hangover is the same.

     

  • Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3000 sq. ft. ... loneliness is the same.

     

  • Weather you drive $2000 car or $200000 car… it takes you to same destination.

     

  • Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down ... you go down with it.

     

  • One day you will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world, but from memories, love and laughter with each other.

     

  • Don’t educate your children to be rich and backstabber. Educate them to be happy on others happiness, so when they grow up, they will know the value of relationships and things.

     

  • Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food.

     

  • You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage!

     

  • If you just want to walk fast, walk alone, and you will remain alone, But if you want to walk far, walk together!

     

  • The one who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up he or she will find one reason to hold on.

     

  • There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it.

     

  • Remember to stay humble… the holes that dug for us in the ground are all the same size…

يه صحيح هے كه آدمی كی زندگی موت الله تعالی كے هاتھ ميں هے، پھر بھی ​يه فرض كر ليں كه آپ 60 سال جيتے هيں۔​

ان 60 سال ميں اگر آپ يوميه 8 گھنٹے سوتے، اٹھتے بیٹھتے اور اس کی تیاری کرتے هيں تو گويا آپ ​20 سال سونے ميں گزار ديتے هيں۔​

اگر آپ يوميه 8 گھنٹے كام اور کام کے لیے آنا جانا كرتے هيں تو يه بھی 20 سال بنتے هيں۔ لہذا ​20 سال کام کاج میں گزارتے ہیں۔

 آپ كا بچپن، نہ سمجھی قبل بلوغت عمر، ٹی وی، انٹرنٹ، گھومنا پھرنا، دیگر معاملات 15 سالوں پر محیط هے۔​

اگر آپ دن ميں دو مرتبه كھانا كھاتے هيں تو كم و بيش نصف گھنٹا صرف هوتا هے۔ يوں آپ كی عمر كے ​3 سال كھانے پینے ميں صرف هوتے هيں۔​

 (20+20+15+8)كھانے پينے، سونے، كام كرنے اور بچپن كے يه ​مجموعی طور پر 58 سال بنتے هيں۔​

باقی بچے 2 سال۔​​

اب سوال يه هے كه ان دو سالوں میں آپ نے زندگی کیسے گزاری. عبادت كے ليے كتنا وقت مختص كرتے هيں؟

حقوق العباد میں کیا کیا. کس کا حق مارا اور کس کو حق دیا

قرآن کتنی بار اور سمجھ کر پڑھا

پورے دن میں 15 منٹ ہر نماز اور اس کی تیاری کے لیے وقت نکالا کے نہیں

قرآن جو کے الله کی کتاب کی ایک رکوع روز پڑھی. ایک رکوع نہ سہی ایک صفحہ پڑھا. ایک صفحہ نہ سہی ایک آیات پڑھی. جو پڑھا اسے سمجھا اور اپنی زندگی کو اس کے مطابق بنایا کے نہیں

صرف ان دو سالوں میں؟

سوچو کے الله تعالی نے اگر آپ سے روزِ قيامت يه پوچھ ليا كه تم نے اپنی عمر كن كاموں ميں صرف کی تو آپ كا جواب كيا هوگا؟

کیا جواب یہ ہو گا کے زندگی کو سونے، اٹھتے بیٹھتے اور اس کی تیاری میں، کام کاج اور آنے جانے میں، کھانے پینے میں، انٹرنیٹ، گھومنے پھرنے میں گزارا، حلال طریقہ اختیار کیا یا حرام، حلال کھایا اور کھلایا یا حرام

 اور کیا جواب یہ ہو گا کے زندگی کو حوس اور نفس کی پوجا کرنے میں، حق چھینے اور مارنے میں، خواھشات کو پورا کرنے میں اور تیری اور تیرے رسول صلی اللہ علیھ و سلم کی سنّت اور ان کی بتائی ہی زندگی پر عمل نہ کرنے میں گزارا

سوچو قبل اس کے کہ الله سے کہنا نہ پر جائے ایک اور زندگی دے دو

زندگی میں بہت راستے لیکن موت کے بعد صرف دو راستے، ایک جنّت دوسرا جہنم

کس راستے جانا ہے اسی زندگی میں سوچ لیجئے

قرآن اور حدیث روز ہر نماز کے بعد تھوڑا سا چاہے ایک آیات ہی کیوں نہ ہو سمجھ کر پڑھیے

مع السلام
