Answer:

 

Prove zakah payable every year

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 


Whenever the Lord Most High Commands the believers a rite of worship, it is the wordings of the Lord and especially the practice and implementation of the Messenger of Allah (saws) which would determine whether that rite of worship is to be done once in a lifetime, or once in a year, or multiple times in a day.

 

For example, the Lord Commands the believers in His Quran to establish prayer; and it is the practice and implementation of the Messenger of Allah (saws) which proves that it is to be offered at the five appointed times of the day.

 

Similarly, the Lord Commands the believers to fast in the month of Ramadan; and it is the practice and implementation of the Messenger of Allah (saws) which proves that this obligatory fast is to be observed every month of Ramadan in every year.

 

Similarly, with the rite of Hajjit is the Prophet (saws) who clarified that one visit to the Sacred House during the appointed days of Hajj would suffice to fulfill this obligatory rite of worship.

 

Ibn 'Abbas narrates that once the Prophet (saws) addressed us and said: "O People! Hajj has been prescribed for you." At this Al-Aqra' bin Habis stood up and asked: "O Prophet of Allah (saws)! Are we to perform Hajj every year?" The Prophet (saws) said: "Had I said 'yes', it would have become a (yearly) obligation, and had it become a (yearly) obligatory duty you would have failed to keep it. Hajj is obligatory only once in one's lifetime. Whatever one does over and above this is supererogatory (a voluntary act) for him.

Related by Ahmad, Abu Daw' ud, Nasa' i and Al-Hakim.

 

Similarly when the below quoted Aayah making the payment of the obligatory Zakah in the eight sectors prescribed by Allah Subhanah were revealed, the Messenger of Allah (saws) himself practiced and implemented the collection and payment of zakah from the believers on an annual basis.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 60:

60 Alms are for the poor and the needy and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to truth); for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by Allah and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.

 

That the obligatory zakah dues are to be paid annually every year by every eligible believer is something on which all the scholars, jurists, and schools of thought are absolutely unanimous, and not a single sect, or school, or scholar or jurist in Islam disagrees regarding its annual obligation.

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 173 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar

Allah's Messenger (saws) said: Verily my Ummah, or the Ummah of Muhammad, will not agree on error and the Hand of Allah is upon the community; he who sets himself apart from it will be set apart in Hell Fire.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
