Zakat Services

Zakah(t); The obligatory charity is called while the voluntary charity is called Sadaqah.

Darulislam facilitate the Collection and the distribution of Zakat and Sadaqa monies in accordance with the principles of Sharia.
One of the important principles of Islam is that all things belong to God, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust. The word Zakat means both ‘purification’ and ‘growth’. Our possessions are purified by setting aside a proportion for those in need.

The compulsory nature of Zakat is firmly established in the Qur’an, the Sunnah (or hadith), and the consensus of the companions and the Muslim scholars. Allah states in Surah at-Taubah verses 34-35: “34:O ye who believe! there are indeed many among the priests and anchorites, who in Falsehood devour the substance of men and hinder (them) from the way of Allah. And there are those who bury gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah. announce unto them a most grievous penalty- 35:On the Day when heat will be produced out of that (wealth) in the fire of Hell, and with it will be branded their foreheads, their flanks, and their backs, their flanks, and their backs.- “This is the (treasure) which ye buried for yourselves: taste ye, then, the (treasures) ye buried!” (The Holy Qur’an 9:34-35).

The prophet (pbuh) said: “Any owner of gold and silver who does not deliver from them their right, on the Day of Quiyamah (Day of Judgment), (the gold and silver) will be shaped as foils of fire. Then it will be heated in the fire of Hell; (and) then with it he will be ironed on his side, his forehead, and his back” (narrated by Muslim).
It is agreed between Muslims in all the centuries the obligatory nature of paying Zakat for gold and silver, and from those the other kinds of currency.

Islamic Wedding

Darulislam provides the services to perform “Aqd” or Nikah” for Muslims according to Islamic practice of marriage principles.

When a Muslim has already decided to marry the person of his or her choice, we arrange to perform the Nikah at Masjid Darulislam. The process is outlined below:

    • The couple marrying needs to get a marriage license from any city in the USA.
    • Darulislam needs a copy of the official city license for their records.
    • We arrange to get designated scholar to perform nikah within seventy two (72) hours from the time the copy of the marriage license is submitted to us.
    • We require the presence of two Muslim witnesses for the groom and a guardian (wali) for the bride.
    • The ideal guardian for the bride is the father of the bride. In the absence of a father for the bride, the person performing the nikah will guide the marrying couple to arrange possible alternatives depending on their options. If the options meet the Islamic requirements, then nikah will be performed.
    • The nikah is usually performed in the prayer hall.
    • The groom with consultation and approval of the bride offers in writing the mahr or sadaq to the bride to be recorded on the certificate of marriage.
    • If needed The nikah details are recorded in a prescribed form It is signed by the bride, the groom, the guardian and the witnesses. A copy of that certificate is provided to the bride and to the groom.
    • The official city marriage license is then signed by the person performing the nikah. Darulislam representative will take the original license and mail it to the city for registration of the marriage.
      Additionally if agreed previously, the married couple could hold the Walima (feast) at the masjid.
