Recite the poem and be able to explain it.

Topic Progress:

Everything that we have and own,
And all the favours we are shown,
Which we normally hold so dear,
Must be purified once a year.

For we are all just Trustees now,
Possessions are not ours for show,
But Allah gave them for a while,
For all of us this is a trial.

So let us give the poor their due,
Which is a duty, that is true,
One of the Pillars or Arkan,
Which do support our Iman.

The traveller and the one in debt,
As well as destitutes can get,
The benefit of Zakah which leads,
To purity of wealth and deeds.

The receiver and the giver of aid,
All feel good when Zakah is paid,
And mankind as a whole will be,
Enriched by acts of charity.

So one thing we must understand,
It’s always good to lend a hand,
For Zakah uplifts us all my friend,
And everyone benefits in the end.
