Fighting the Coming Famine

By Annisa Essack

Recent analysis shows that people living in poor countries have poor diets which account for one in five deaths globally. However, their diets are not a matter of choice. Most people in lower-income countries face cost factors when making food choices. Whilst wealthier people have diets rich in sugars, fats and red meats that increase their risk of diabetes, heart disease and even cancer, the diets of poorer people lack nutrients which would provide the nourishment needed for the body to thrive.

This means that higher-income groups with poor diets kill people later in life and the opposite is then true for the poor who risk dying in early childhood and also suffer from various nutritional disorders and slower cognitive development.

We tend to think of food crises as something that affects only the very poor or developing countries. But, the stark reality is that there is a more serious issue at hand which could have dire consequences for people, rich and poor. read more

Wasiyat For More Than A Third

Question: Can I make a bequest that upon my demise, all my wealth should be given in charity?

Answer: A bequest is only valid up to a third of the estate. If the bequest exceeds a third, it may only be implemented with consent of the heirs, if all are adults. The consent will only be valid after the demise of the Deceased.

ولا تجوز الوصية للوارث الا ان يجيزها الورثة ولا يجوز بما زاد على الثلث (القدوري ٨٥٢)

And Allah Knows Best
