Since the record of these funds and their collection requires the knowledge of the lengths, areas, measures and weights, we address that so as to become quite clear in a way that determines their reality and removes any vagueness about them. We evaluate these funds in lengths, areas, measures and weights that are used today, so that they are easily followed and fairly understood, far from any complications.
Since the monetary aspect has a special importance in the funds of the Khilafah State, because it is linked to the divine rules, we address it and explain its reality, the basis upon which it is established, the units that are related to, together with their weights, and also the problems faced and the way of solving these problems.
The rules of the funds of the Khilafah State are derived from the Qur’an and the Sunnah, after study and scrutiny of the sayings of the Sahabah, the Tabi’een (the followers) and their followers and the opinions of the Mujtahideen. All this is done based on the evidences proven to be the strongest in our view; for the divine rules are adopted based on the least amount of doubt (Ghalabat uz-Zun) without the stipulation of the evidences being definitive as is required when establishing the creed.
We ask Allah (swt) to help us and make it easy for us to put these rules into application in the coming Khilafah State. Indeed He is our protector (Mawla), and indeed He is the best protector and the best Helper.
