Russian mufti urged Muslims to forgive each other's debts
Moscow. April 20. INTERFAX-the Head of the Spiritual Assembly of Muslims of Russia, mufti of Moscow Albir Krganov believes that due to the difficult situation around the pandemic, Muslims should forgive each other financial debts.
"We appeal to people who have borrowed money from someone: you can forgive your friend, your brother, can't you? It is not every year that such a situation occurs, it will also be a God-pleasing thing. You are a religious person - do good, not just with prayer and words, but show your faith effectively! " the mufti said at an online briefing in Moscow on Monday.
Krganov also appealed to landlords to find an opportunity to forgive the rent to those who rent their premises. "We must be Mature and spiritually support each other," the mufti said.
In addition, he called on wealthy Muslims to pay an annual social tax - zakat, without waiting for the onset of Ramadan. Krganov reminded that zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam, and its execution is a God - pleasing matter.
The mufti reminded that the rich in Islam are not those who have their own house in Monaco or a boat, but those who have the equivalent of 85 grams of gold, or about 300 thousand rubles, and one fortieth of the income of such a Muslim should pass to the poor. When calculating property, jewelry is also counted, and cars are not counted.
Among those who are worthy of receiving alms, the mufti named people dismissed because of the pandemic, and migrants who are equated to the category of travelers.
