Dubai – While most Muslims give for charity, be it mandatory or optional, in the holy month of Ramadan, Dar Al Ber Society - run by Dubai government, has held a free scientific course on the rulings Zakat ‘alms’.

Prominent scholar Dr Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bin Rais Al Rais, the General Administrator of the Ancient Islam Website (islamancient.com), delivered a series of valuable lectures on the same at the Salam Mosque of Al Barsha-2, Dubai.

Imran Mohammed Abdullah, Board Member and Head of Charity Projects at Dar Al Ber Society, said the eminent scholar shed light on the provisions, principles, types, amounts, evidences, and conditions of Zakat or alms, be it mandatory or optional.

“Dr Rais also urged the audience to give for charity, promising great rewards, and warned against neglecting such inevitable pillar of Islam as reported by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).”

Elaborating, Abdullah said the program is part of a series of scientific and cultural lectures and courses being organised on a regular basis to develop the religious awareness of the public based on authentic, moderate, and tolerant writings.

“The Culture and Studies Sector of the Society always hosts renowned scholars and preachers to give such essential lectures, mainly in Ramadan, in collaboration with the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai.”

These courses are in compliance with verse 11/58 of the Holy Quran which reads: ‘Allah will raise, by degrees, those who have believed among you and those who were given knowledge,’ he added.

“Such priceless lectures are also in pursuance of the directives of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) who was reported as saying: ‘He, whoever follows a path to seek knowledge, Allah shall let that way end him in paradise.”

Abdullah said the program is aimed to spread useful and authentic knowledge, and boost the call to the way of Almighty Allah with wisdom and fair admonition as clearly and frequently stipulated in the Quran and Sunnah.

“Crowds of male and female learners and worshippers from across the UAE always flock to the scientific lectures organised by Dar Al Ber Society to quench their thirst for knowledge.

“The scripts and all writing materials needed were available while the door was open for fruitful discussion, and all queries were addressed as well,” he said, noting that a special hall was specified for female learners at the ‘Women Only’ prayer room.
