In this podcast, the following questions are answered (the text is kept as it was sent in the questions):

1. Is it better to give some spare money u have to a needy cause/charity,or use that same money to pay off a debt? (bearing in mind that the debtor intends on paying the debt off eventually anyway)

2. Can you give voluntary charity to people who are well-off.

3. I suffer from depression – is there an Islamic cure?

4. Is it permissible to recite the Quran while lying down in bed?

Is it Time to Repent?

Do you have a contract with Allah that you will live until you can repent? What are the conditions of repentance? What should we do when we sin?

This video is the third episode of the ‘Take Five’ series of short video blogs about Islam, Muslims and general reminders.

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth, before you become old; your health, before you fall sick; your wealth, before you become poor; your free time before you become busy; and your life, before your death.”
