Chairty ZakahLearn about Charity in Islam, What is Zakah?, What is Nisab?, Examples of how to calculate Nisab, and Eight categories who are entitled to Zakah.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

"The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it). One should start giving first to his dependents.

And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money which is left after his expenses).

Hajj - Islamic Pilgrimage To Makkah

The Kaaba Read all about the Islamic Pilgrimage - الحج in Islam, which covers The Five Days Of Hajj, Types of Hajj, After Hajj, and lots of Mas'alah's (issues) concerning Hajj.

5 conditions of Hajj being obligatory: being Muslim, being of sound mind and being an adult - The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,

“The pen is lifted from three [and does not record their deeds]: from one who is sleeping, until he wakes up; from a child until he reaches puberty, and from one who is insane until he comes to his senses.” (Abu Dawood)

Being free - Hajj is not obligatory for a slave, because he is distracted by his duties towards his master, and being able to do it - Physically i.e. one is sound in body and can bear the hardship of travelling to the sacred House of Allah - Financially i.e. one has enough funds to get to the sacred House of Allah and back again.
