Benefit: Zakāh Purifies So Don't Hoard Your Wealth!!
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Part of a tele-link organised by Saʿīd al-Habashī (raḥimahullāh) conducted in the summer of '07 with the noble Shaykh, ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Mohi al-Dīn on zakāh and how it purifies one's soul and wealth. The fact that the apportioned zakāh of an individual is not their wealth but rather something that belongs to the rightful people in need of zakāh, a purification of one's wealth, wealth that Allāh blessed him/her with - wealth that they could not have accumulated except for Allāh's mercy and wealth that could be removed if Allāh so wills. So take heed Muslims - zakāh purifies your wealth! Translated by Mūsá Richardson.
