As salamo alaikome brothers and sisters......... I have been having so many personal problems this past month just towards the end of Ramadan and continuing still. It has made me reflect on the possible reasons behind it. I wondered if I could be doing something wrong and bringing on the misery myself. I was thinking about Zakat. I really dont understand alot about it. I went to various websites trying to gain some knowledge about it since I literally know nothing. In one website they had zakat calculation tables and so I filled it out and it said I am not required to pay due to my income being less than what is needed to support me as it is. I think it was suggesting that maybe I am one of the people in NEED of zakat but I dont know <hahahaha> Anyway I was reading on another website and I was getting emails towards the end of Ramadan advising time was running out to pay a special zakat for Ramadan. I didnt understand NONE of it and I dont have any way to pay anything online so I did nothing. I was thinking yesterday maybe this is the cause of all my problems?? I wonder if Allah is punishing me for not paying this special zakat for Ramadan so he took away both of my jobs and now I have no income at all??????? Really I am soooooo confused. One website telling me one thing and another website telling me the opposite..........maybe I messed something up.
