*Wajebaat – Your Ignorance is bliss for the Exploiters*
Definition – Wajebaat is the plural of Wajib, which means obligatory as per the pillars of the Shariah of Islam
Let us look at the form that is generated and sent to you after the sabeel is paid. Sabeel is of two types
Chula Sabeel – Per family / (literally – kitchen)
Establishment Sabeel – per business establishment
This is fixed by Kothar, is non-negotiable and increased every three years
Form Page 1 – in Lisane Daawat
The title says that the wajebaat is collected as per the order of “Shariate Garra” or the Shariah of the Lady, not Rasulallah. The lady implied here is Hurratul Maleka, who appointed the first Dai.
Zakatul Fitra Mardo (Men)
Zakatul Fitra Bairo (Women)
Zakatul Fitra Gair Balig (Children)
Zakatul Fitra Hamal (Embryo)
Zakatul Fitra Amwat (Deceased)
Silatul Imam – it is meant for Imamuz Zaman
Nazarul maqam – meant for the sahebe Maqam (Imam)
Najwa – Dai ul Asra
These heads complete Table A
Zakaat ul Maal
These heads complete Table B
The total of A + B is called Wajebaat
This page is in English and is for other payments
Hadiya – Salaam Mazoon Saheb
Hadiya – Salaam Mukasir Saheb
Now let us understand each head, its nature and what that implies:
Fitra is a charity to ensure acceptance of your worship in the month of Ramadan and is supposed to be given to the poor of the community who otherwise would not be able to celebrate Eid.
Silatul Imam in Table A is to be given to the Imam uz Zamaan and is the same or in lieu of Khums in Table B. Thus we are required to pay twice for the same. Silatul Imam is a certain amount in silver paid in times of peace and Khums is one fifth of the annual saving in times of Jihad or War. Thus now when the Imam is not at war, Khums is totally redundant.
Nazarul Maqam is a wish an individual makes in times of difficulty, so by nature is voluntary. Also it comes twice in Form A and Form B.
Najwa of Dail Asra – means gift to the Dai of the time. From its definition it is clear that it is not Obligatory.
*Zakaat ul Maal* – It is to be paid at 2.5% of the increase in the Net Worth of the family at the end of the year. This is the only part which is obligatory. As per the Islamic laws, the first right on Zakaat is poor relatives, then comes direct charity to poor, the third preference is indirect charity through someone, which in case of Bohras is the Kothar or Vazaarat.
*Khumus* – we have already discussed it under Silatul Imam.
*Kaffara* – It is to be paid as atonement for missing out Rozas for reasons beyond the control of an individual such as ill health etc, which can be compensated either by doing them later or doing charity at the rate of ½ a kilo of grains per roza lost.
Minnat is the same as nazarul maqam, a wish made which is to be paid if it comes true, so is voluntary. The same thing comes thrice under various names.
Najwa – Gift to Dai is obviously a voluntary thing and cannot be called wajib. The same applies to Hadiyah of Mazoon and Mukasir Sahebs.
Hajje Badal is the amount to be paid in lieu of doing Hajj, for your deceased parents if they have missed hajj. Obviously, you can’t pay it for yourself in your own lifetime. So, if your parents were Hajis, then this head is redundant. If not then it is a one time payment, not every year.
Khidmate Ramadaniyah – This is a voluntary contribution to be paid for the services of the janaab, leading the prayers in Ramadan.
As is clear, the only compulsory / mandatory / obligatory part is the Zakaat-ul- Maal as per Islam. Everything else is optional and up to you.
