...Zakaat al-Fitr Praise be to Allaah. Definition Zakaat al-Fitr is a kind of charity (sadaqah) that is obligatory at the time of breaking the fast of Ramadaan. The word zakaat is connected by idaafah (genitive structure in Arabic grammar) to fitr because the occasion of breaking the fast is the reason why this zakaat becomes obligatory. Reasons for zakaat al-fitr and what Islam says about it Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) made zakaat al-fitr obligatory as a means of purifying the fasting person from idle talk and foul language, and to feed the poor. Whoever pays it before the prayer, it is an accepted zakaat, and whoever pays it after the prayer, it is just a kind of charity (sadaqah).” (Reported by Abu Dawood, 1371. Al-Nawawi said: Abu Dawood reported it from Ibn ‘Abbaas with a hasan isnaad). “Purifying” means purifying the soul of the one who has fasted Ramadaan. With regard to the word “foul language”, Ibn al-Atheer said: “ ‘Foul language’ refers to obscene speech. ‘Feeding [the poor]’ refers to food that is edible. ‘Whoever pays it before the prayer’ means before Salaat al-‘Eid. ‘It is an accepted zakaat’ – here zakaat means sadaqat al-fitr. ‘Just a kind of charity’ means a kind of charity that could be given at any time.” (‘Awn al-Ma’bood Sharh Abi Dawood). It was said that this is what was meant by the aayah in Soorat al-A’laa (interpretation of the meaning): “But those will prosper who purify...

Right now I am currently an accounting major as well as business marketing major. Accounting was never my first choice; however when I had taken it in high school I found a small interest in it. Math was always my strongest subject in school and I have also always been well with dealing with money. While taking accounting I learned there is way more to it than just numbers and money. This is just like there are more accounting specialties than I had thought. I am currently 22 years old so what I want to do with my life is still a huge mystery. There are three accounting specialties that have sparked my interest these specialties are accounting clerk, international accounting, and tax accounting. All three of these jobs I have recently learned about and started researching so in my paper I would like to explain to you why these three jobs have caught my attention.

A payment or a cash receipt may be in a form of, credit card or even electronic transfer which that item is then paid.Cash basis is mainly used by a smaller businesses in which a creditor may want to understand the financial statements in a easier way.

...SHEIKH ZAYED ISLAMIC CENTRE University of Karachi “ISLAM & SCIENCE ASSIGNMENT” Submitted to: Dr. Umar Hayat Asim Submitted by: Ariba Inayet Roll# 05 Date: September 10, 2015 Islam: Islam is one of the largest religions in the world with over 1 billion followers. It is a monotheistic faith based on revelations received by the Prophet Muhammad in 7th-century Saudi Arabia. The Arabic word Islam means “submission” reflecting the faith's central tenet of submitting to the will of God. Followers of Islam are called Muslims. The sacred text of Islam, the Qur'an, was written in Arabic within 30 years of Muhammad's death. Muslims believe it contains the literal word of God. Also important is the tradition of the sayings and actions of Muhammad and his companions, collected in the Hadith. Islamic practices center on the Five Pillars of Islam—faith; prayer; fasting; pilgrimage to Mecca; and alms Science: Science is the system of acquiring knowledge through use of the scientific method — that is, generating hypotheses and theories through observation and testing. Science is intimately linked with technology; technology is developed using scientific discoveries and science is reliant on technology to further its ideas. The goals of science are to learn more about the world and use this knowledge for the betterment of humankind, or for the destruction of mankind, whichever comes first.

A. What extend do you agree or disagree with this statement? B. In not less than two and less than five pages, write an essay on this issue.

He or she verify the accuracy of all monetary transactions and to make sure that all these are legal and follow correct guidelines.

Zakat

... done. Discussing about earned income, in accounting perspective we also come across the term ‘unearned income’, which bring the opposite meaning of earned income; the income you receives in advance and you has not done the job. Thus, from zakat point of view, only earned income is zakatable with few conditions. In addition, it is also critical to highlight the variety of income that can be earned to avoid overlapping in calculation of zakat. First, earned income can also acquire in increase of zakatable asset. For example, increase in number of sheep can also we call as earned income. Secondly, profit from already zakated asset also can we consider as earned income such as the sale of crops after zakat is paid. However, these two kinds of income are not the type of income that we want to discuss in this paper. Our discussion on earned income in this paper is restricted to earnings for labors and professionals, so that we can focus on the main issue here. LEGALITY The legalization of earned income has known to be executed first in the time of Muawiyah, according to Imam Malik in his Muwatta’. Muawiyah was the one who made it legal to collect zakat on earned income. Before his time, the collection of zakat only in the items that mentioned by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him) such as gold, silver and agriculture product to name a few. Moreover, in the time of Caliph Umar Abdul Aziz, the zakat was deducted first before transferred the earned income to workers...

...The future of the accounting profession will be a period of increased change and continuous development. The industry will require new levels of business flexibility and competition will intensify because new industry entrants will outsource and automate accounting, audit, and tax professionals, especially for routine and lower-value services. Financial service companies, banks, software and Internet firms will soon offer an increasing amount of accounting and tax-related products and services. Outsourcing to lower-cost countries will also continue to grow in the future. India, for example, already attracts global accounting work and other countries are moving into this field. Seeing opportunity, the government has targeted accounting outsourcing as a growth industry. Globalization will require accounting professionals to master new skills, knowledge, and standards as a growing number of clients operate across borders. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has issued a plan to require U.S. companies to issue financial statements to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) by 2015. This means that practitioners will be required to gain expertise in both the U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and IFRS reporting standards. In addition to the changes brought by IFRS, other legal requirements will continue to expand as governments at all levels increasingly require accounting professionals to help with agreements.
