Husband expecting the wife to work

Q: My husband believes that because I’m from Europe, not an Arab and a Muslim convert I should be working. We moved to Europe recently from the Middle East and my husband told me “survive by yourself”, meaning he would not pay any longer for my extras like clothes, cosmetics, books, etc. It hurt me deeply and since then I never asked him for anything. He said sorry but after that I’m not able to accept any money from him and I refused anything he wishes to buy for me. I answer by “God bless you for offering but no thank you”. I really feel terrible to accept anything from him and at the same time I do not work which makes me feel sad.

When will one be eligible for zakaat?

Q: I am self employed. My business has been struggling for the past 7 months. I have not been able to meet my commitments by paying my suppliers who have now stopped my account. I am not able to provide for my family the way I used to. Allhamdullilah I have been able to provide food with the mercy of Allah. I know I can turn my business around with some financial help. I place my faith and trust in Allah.

My question is that when I ask for financial help, my fellow brothers want to offer me Zakaat. I am shocked, confused and don't know if I am a Zakaat candidate. Alhamdulillah I have everything besides money and no business. I am in big debt as well. Do I qualify for Zakaat, as I am not comfortable with it. I have to consider my family as well.

Distributing inheritance

Q: I've been mandated by the family to be their General Power of Attorney in the handling of the properties of our late father. The property in question is in Pakistan. My late brother, an heir, was a resident in the UK. I requested documents from his siblings in the UK, namely a General Power of Attorney, which they obliged with. However, the documents needed to be attested with the Foreign Office and the Pakistani Embassy in the UK. They have had the documents attested, but now they are refusing to send the documents back to me. Regrettably I've sent a letter of demand/return of documents to them, with no success. What should I do?

Is a holiday home regarded as watn-e-asli?

Q: A person lives in Isipingo Beach and has been living in Isipingo for more than 20 years. He has a house and owns and runs two businesses in Ispingo. He still lives and works in Ispingo Beach for most of the year. This person bought a flat in Surat, in a street where his grandfather used to live, and passed away many many years ago. He goes to the flat once every few months and his period of stay in Surat varies from less than 14 days upto 20 days. When he is not in Surat, he gives out the flat on rent to people from South Africa who go to Surat for holiday or medical treatment. When he purchased the flat he made intention that due to it being in the area where his ancestors used to live, this will also be his house.

1. Will Surat become his وطن اصلي while Ispingo Beach remains his وطن اصلي? Thus he will have 2 وطن اصلي and he will never be a musafir when he goes to Surat.

2. Can he read full Salaah in Surat if he is only staying there for 10 days in that particular journey, because he has an intention to return to Surat for another week or two after three months and this is the home town of his ancestors (including grandparents).
