THE ISLAMIC LAW OF ZAKAT | PART.4

الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): وَجَدنا في كتابِ رسولِ ‏اللّه‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) … إذا مَنَعُوا الزَّكاةَ مَنَعَتِ الأرضُ بَرَكَتَها مِنَ الزَّرعِ والثِّمارِ والمَعادِنِ كُلِّها

Imam Al-Baqir (as) narrated, ‘We found the following written in the book of the Prophet (S): …When the alms-tax is withheld, the earth withholds all its yield of plants, fruits and minerals.’
