Zakat funds Terrorism. Follow the money.
All “good” Muslims pay zakat and zakat funds terrorism.
The Five Pillars of Islam (arkān al-Islām أركان الإسلام; also arkān al-dīn أركان الدين “pillars of the religion“) are five basic acts in Islam, considered mandatory by believers and are the foundation of Muslim life. They are summarized in the famous hadith of Gabriel.
They make up Muslim life, prayer, concern for the needy, self purification and the pilgrimage. They are:
It never ceases to amaze me how gullible people are. Not only is Wholesome choice positioning itself passive aggressively to steal Whole Foods Market share in Orange County, it might interest you to know they also fund terrorism. They sell a large amount of Halal Certified products. Lets see what the muslim holy books say about the subject.
According to the Qur’an, the Zakat funds must be used for the following purposes.
- The Fuqara poor. They are the poor who do not beg for support.
- The Masakin. The destitute; They are the poor who beg for support.
- Amil’ Zakah. Those who administer the collection and distribution of the Zakat funds.
- Mu’Allaf. Those who may be enticed to Islam as well as new converts who need financial support.
- Riqab. Those in bondage; Those Muslim slaves who may have their freedom purchased.
- Fi sabi `Lillah. Those who are fighting in the Cause of Allah, e.g., the Mujahideen.
- Ibn as’Sabil. The wayfarer; Muslim travelers who need assistance while on a journey.
- Gharimun – ‘people burdened with debt’
Islamic law requires a 2.5% tax called zakat which is imposed on income and accumulated wealth of all devout Muslims.
ie. the muslims that are involved in the halal industry- the imams, slaughtermen, workers, business & shop owners etc.
Halal certification is done on a fee for service basis, with the fees varying with the scope and scale of the services.
Certification is provided by Islamic organizations, and would not be halal if the required zakat was not paid on the fees.
What you may not know is that there are eight classes of zakat recipients, each of which gets a 1/8 share of the gross.
One of those classifications is fighters in Allah’s cause aka Mudihideen, aka terrorists.
When you purchase a product which is certified Halal, you are indirectly contributing to terrorism. http://www.boycotthalal.com/halal-funds-terrorists-zakat/
Let’s see what Mike Mokhtare says about his company:
“People living in the United States like to explore new worlds of foods.They are open-minded,” said Mokhtare.”This area has Chinese, Jewish, Persian, South African, Orthodox Jewish, Russian, Indian and Eastern European communities.Our idea was to bring these different cultures, and also white Caucasians, under one ceiling.”
Oh, how gracious of you, to include us as an after thought. Are their other types of Caucasians besides the white ones? It’s nice that all of those other groups of people have cultures, maybe some day the white Caucasians will have a culture that people of other nations want to be a part of.
Because I am having issues with my email, (hotmail) and the added vigilance with the problems with the cloud I was not able to access my background on Sivoush Nayyeri but if anybody else would like to do that you can put his name into ( http://www.instantcheckmate.com/ ) and let me know what you find out, he is the president of Wholesome Choice, be sure to click the one that lives in Irvine.
In closing I would like to say that Wholesome Choice, does not have a forbidden ingredients list like Whole Foods does, their products are laden with preservatives, nitrates, sulfates, and who knows what else. The choice isn’t really that wholesome when you consider it. . .
Moreover, The Guardian demonstrates no curiosity at all as to why Islamic charities fund Jihadist terrorist groups in the first place. The origin for this comes from the system of zakat itself.
Zakat is a form of tithing in Islam in which Muslims who are able to do so donate 2.5% of their wealth (5% for Shia). Zakat is very important in Islam and is considered one of the five pillars of Islam.
This chapter provides a complete explanation of the 8 categories of recipients of zakat who are entitled to receive it. Of particular interest to those of us in the West is the seventh category. From pages 364-365 of A Summary of Islamic Jurisprudence, Volume 1:
The seventh category is that spent in the Cause of Allah such as that given to warriors who volunteer in fighting for the Cause of Allah and they do not take salaries from the Public Treasury of Muslims. Generally, the phrase “the Cause of Allah” refers to the war against the enemies of Muslims, as Allah, Exalted be He.”
