Pearl of Wisdom

was asked by Abu Ja'far regarding Allah's verse in the Qur'an: And He is Allah in the heavens and in the earth' to which he replied, 'Yes, similarly He is in every place.' I [Abu Ja'far] asked, 'In His essence?' Imam replied, 'Woe betide you! Verily places are subject to limits and boundaries, so by your saying that he is in a place in His essence, you are in fact compelled to say that he is contained in objects which are subject to measurement and size. He is, however, distinct from His creation, entirely encompassing what he creates in knowledge, power, control, authority and dominion.?

Question : #216 Category: Zakaat & Khums
Subject: Sayyids and sadaqa
Question: Is it permissible for a "Sayyid" to have Sadaqa for their needs? If it is permissible, then please specify the condition.
Answer: It is permissible for a Hashimi to give his sadaqa to another Hashimi or to a non-Hashimi. This includes both Zakat of property and zakat of Fitra. But it is not permissible for a non-Hashimi to give his Sadaqa to a Hashimi. If a Hashimi receives Zakat of property or fitra from a non-Hashimi, it would be forbidden for him to use it, and he who gives it (zakat), his "Zimma" (obligation) would not be discharged. In cases other than those mentioned above it is permissible for a non-Hashimi to give his Sadaqa, atonement, or Fidya of fast ( kaffara) or any desirable charity to a Hashimi. Yes, if charity given to a Hashimi is too little an amount of property and it is given with the intention of repulsing calamity and evil, there is Ishkaal (objection) in its being permissible.
