Zakaat and Charity
Q: On the issue of begging I would like to know whether it is compulsory to give to every beggar that comes to your car or home if you are in possession of extra monies? Eg: does it matter if you can see the person is on drugs or is drunk or is well dressed etc.
Q: There are a few people who owe me money for loans they have taken and stock purchased etc. Should I regard these amounts as Zakatable assets when calculating Zakah?
Q: Is it permissible to discharge Zakaat on one’s Zakaatable wealth before the expiry of one complete lunar year?
