Surah Al-Qadr

Verily! We have sent it (this Quran) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree); And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, (i.e. 83 years and 4 months). Therein descend the angels and the Ruh [Jibrael (Gabriel)] by Allah’s Permission with all Decrees; Peace! (All that night, there is Peace and Goodness from Allah to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.

Ibn Qayyim (Rahimahullaah) says about the Jews:

“The nation upon whom is the Divine wrath are the Jews, the people of lies, slander, betrayal, conspiracy and trickery, the killers of Prophets and consumers of ribaa (usury) and bribes. 

They have the most evil hearts of all nations, and the worst attitude. They are the farthest removed from (Divine) Mercy and the closest to (Divine) wrath. Their way is enmity and stirring up hatred. They represent the house of witchcraft, lies and trickery. 

They do not see anything wrong in rejecting and disbelieving in Prophets whom they did not like. With regard to a believer, they respect not the ties, either of kinship or of covenant [cf. Al-Tawbah 9:10]. They do not respect the rights of those who agree with them, or show any compassion towards them, nor do they show any justice or fairness to those who work with them. 

There is no safety or security for those who mix with them, and there is no sincerity towards those who use their services. The most evil of them is the one who is most intelligent, and the cleverest one among them is the one who cheats the most. The one who is good at heart – which it is unlikely to find among them – is not a Jew in any real sense. They are the most bad-tempered of people, with the gloomiest houses and the filthiest courtyards. 

They have very bad manners – their greeting is a curse, and meeting them is bad news. Their slogan is wrath and they are filled with hatred.”

(Hidaayat al-Hayaaraa, p. 8)

The Appointed Term of the Hour Is Hidden from Us
“No one knows when he/she will die. The appointed term of the Hour is hidden from us. A person drives his car and may not return home. Only the news of his death may reach a relative or a friend. Sudden death is something real and its cases are on the rise. The question is have we prepared for the Day of Recompense? We may be committing sins everyday, but are we seeking forgiveness? And if we do, are we fulfilling the conditions of Tawbah (seeking Allah’s forgiveness)?
The day that passes is considered gone, and day to come we may not live to see. The present day is the one we can invest in for the Hereafter. If we live our days accordance with Allah’s Book and the Prophet’s (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) Sunnah as understood and applied by the righteous predecessors then we hope Allah will save us from the torment of the grave and from the horrors of the Day of Recompense. If we spend our days following the astray ways in belief and Ibaadaat (acts of worship), then we can only blame ourselves. May Allah, the Most Beneficent and Most Merciful, keep us on the Path of As-Salaf-us-Saalih and make us die on it.”

Allah Islam Muslim

As-Sadaqat (here it means Zakah) are only for the Fuqara’ (poor), and Al-Masakin (the poor) and those employed to collect (the funds); and to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islam); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allah’s Cause (i.e. for Mujahidun - those fighting in the holy wars), and for the wayfarer (a traveler who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allah. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise. [Quran 9:60]

Ibn Qudaamah (may Allah have mercy on him) said in al-Mughni (2/280): It is not permissible to spend zakah on anything other than what Allah has mentioned here, such as building mosques, bridges and aqueducts, maintaining roads, shrouding the dead, providing hospitality to visitors and other acts of charity that Allah did not mention here.

From the Fatwas of Ibn Baaz:

It is preferable to pay Zakah to the poor Muslims and it is not permissible to give this money to the establishment of a Masjid, according to the Jumhur (dominant majority of scholars).
