Brother Talib, Your desire to join the people who want to follow true spirit of Islam and become the "people who believe in peace, who want to live in peace and become providers of peace (muslim)". There is a new moment starting and you have joined a small part of that movement at aastana. Stay with us and learn and join the movement when time arrives. Your search will lead your there if you are looking for it. Welcome

Dear Talib ! Your esteemed desire is appreciable, as you know the QURANIC TERMS youm addin / youm al qiyama / youm assaa’ means the era when the divine system will be established as promised by Allah,at the globe (at least in any society) , and qura’n assured about its establishment.  
 
My dear we are assigned: 1:- To present the divine message in its true sense and sprit.  
The Magnet attracts each magnetic material (not the rest) if it is a true MEGNET with its attractive force.  
2:- To work on changing the non- magnetic material in to magnetic one (to make the people rationalist. Plz don’t bother about the results ( in your tiny time period); you might not see the divine established state in your life. Kindly, go through the verses 33/63,51/12,7/187,79/42.

Aastana teem(Sister Nargis and abullalbashoeb ,Brother Alahmar) ! Please comment on Brother Moazzam's resent reply and his vision reflected in the link referred by Mubashir,is it not controversial opinion. More over ,there are many religious cum political forces actively working to come up in power in their societies, should not Muslim countries empower to O.I.C as this Muslim forum is participating globally ,If not ,then what should be done??

It is really hard to disagree with my brother Moazzam as he is very articulate. UN charter is unfortunately same as Al-Quran for us a lot of good thing but no implementation and enforcement. UN charter does not require member states to take any of this serious this is fact of life. Operational structure of UN is ineffective and dominated by veto powers special interest. Always remember UN is not free and it requires member states to pay to be a member. Payments are in different shapes not always money. UN also can’t force member states to change course as it needs Security Council’s powerful states to intervene. Veto power states only intervene when they have some stake in the game some sort of benefit for them. We can go on and on pointing out the functional and operational issues with UN.  
Now let talk about western welfare states, there is no doubt they provide a lot more social services than many other states in the world. It is also true that they further the human knowledge and human rights as well as human quality of life. But always remember western states didn’t learn this from any religion or book but through very bitter trail and errors. These trials and errors will not end here as they have not achieved the desired levels as Al-Quran demands.  
Western world achieved a lot of prosperity through capitalism but at the expense of other poor states and people. Discussing capitalism is different topic by itself I will leave this for other time.  
Now the topic of democracy, and its benefits for western world. Democracy is built around a concept that people decide their issues/problems through a voting. Majority vote is the majority will of people and minority has to live with that. Democracy has many issues and may not fully comply with Al-Quran expectations but due to time limitation I have to leave this topic for later and for my other brothers to give insight.  
Humanity needs a system that is provided in Al-Quran and we are destined to get there. Only difference is through trial and error it will be long and painful but through Al-Quran it will be easier. How easy, it is not that simple as we have kept Al-Quran in a stationary state and never let it implement and evolve into a perfect system for humanity. World still has not come over the “Hamans, Qaroons and Faroons”. It is possible as our beloved Prophet has done it so we should not lose hope but we need to have good grip over Al-Quran understanding so when time is right there will be people who will be steadfast in the teaching of Al-Quran and they will make it happen again. That will be an era of revival we all hoping for. One Fateful Day, Our Dreams Will Come True! And I am a Dreamer :-)

Dear Talib, am posting another link to enhance your thought process and look into possibilities.  
 
http://servantofthelight.com/  
 
Please refer  
1. Allodial Ownership.  
2. Polycentric Community.  
3. Common Law.  
4. Human Energy Economic System.  
 
This might give you a picture of global implementation. For me I think it was too high level a topic to understand with my meager knowledge, I felt things were revolving around with intellectual thoughts but not zeroing down. Hope it might ring bells in your mind. Request participants who may or have gone through these to put in simple words if they find anything which might be helpful for the cause.  
 
Note : We may not have same understanding of Islam but same process of establishment.  
 
With no intension to offend or defend….  
 
Thanks,  
Mubashir Syed.

Dear all: Thanks for your valuable input. I believe that Islam is a simple and easy to understand religion; somehow we have "created" complications (whatever the motive). The beauty of this religion is its simplicity and being practical; it sure is a code of life.  
 
My heart bleeds when I see common people beliefs and how their thoughts have been polluted. My concern was how do we as an umma reach to common people and present Islam in its true spirit. There are many forums where Islam is being discussed (in its original context) but a very small portion of the muslim population has exposure to that. How will this message spread and if there is anything we can do jointly to ensure that the true and original message is spread.  
 
I know what I am saying is a difficult task but that is more of a reason for us to organize and have a plan. People with malafied intentions have resources and unfortunately the authencity tosay what they say.It is unfortunate that common person either do not have access to the right message or has become so blind over the generations that s/he is not even willing to listen another point of view. Breaking that ignorance will require planning and surely more resources than few websites and blogs. My concern was if anything can be done in a more planned manner.

Dear Brother Talib,  
 
Your basic question: "To establish a true Islamic state, ummah has to be formed........."  
 
You must have gone through many valuable comments above in response to your question. While all of those consisted of useful suggestions and portrayed some substance of motivation and spirit, but no practical steps in the right direction were pinpointed. I will be very frank, direct and in a matter-of-fact way, blunt in answering your question. I would apologize in advance if someone is hurt by my remarks.  
 
To establish a State, or more precisely, "to establish a true Islamic Government in a State," you simply require POWER.  
 
On the Ideological ground, where you stand presently, you are POWERLESS. QURAN needs POWERFUL PEOPLE for its implementation.  
 
POWER, under the present prevalent, accepted, legitimate DEMOCRATIC System, is acquired only through ELECTIONS.  
 
ELECTIONS can be made use of only under the banner of a POLITICAL PARTY.  
 
A POLITICAL PARTY is formed by registering yourself as a POLITICAL ENTITY under the Constitution of your Home Country.  
 
It is only THIS PROCESS that gives you POWER in the first instance, by giving you Rights, Privileges, Safeguards and Liberty under the Umbrella of your CONSTITUTION to work for your victory with all possible means and sources. Only as a POLITICAL PARTY you are entitled to publish, propagate and disseminate your manifesto on a country-wide scale among the masses, the grass roots.  
 
For Such a Registration, and subsequent organizational activities, you require money and resources.  
All Quranics are POOR (?), Scattered, Disorganized. They have a dread of field work and think that working on their PCs, sitting on their desks, they can generate an intellectual revolution, which will, in turn, automatically create an upheaval on the political scene, and people would escort them on their shoulders to the seats of POWER - and then by establishing Quran as the Constitution forthwith,,,,,,,,,, they will live happily thereafter.  
 
This is the very honest and straightforward scenario, my dear. As a matter of fact, Quranic Movement needs LEADERS. Leaders are those who are men of Resources and Influence (MALAAIKA), and those who spend from their wealth in organizing the scattered supporters, in establishing a political platform and in unleashing a multi-directional propaganda campaign utilizing all the available media sources, reaching the grass root level, to infuse among the masses an awakening and enthusiasm for bringing about a radical change. Such Leaders (or a Leader), under the Political banner, would work restlessly addressed people country-wide promising “not the enforcement of QURAN,” but giving written commitments to establish a Welfare State and to afford all the basic human rights and privileges to each and every individual and family throughout the country.  
 
Is there a hope for such a Leadership; and such a political movement?  
 
Comments for and against welcome!

Brother Aurangzaib, I am impressed!  
Come and lets find those MALAAIKA so that they can start a political movement and implement the the system based on Quran.  
 
I have asked this question earlier on and I am asking it again;  
When in the history of mankind, did such system exist? (Please provide solid evidence to support your answer)  
 
Dear brother, just to remind you that we are living in the world of 21st century. A global village where the entire economic system is based on the concept of usury and fiat money.  
 
World War 2 ended and gave birth to a new economic and financial system known as Bretton Woods system.  
This (usury and fiat money based) system has changed the dynamics of almost every thing. World's economy is now under a total control of Freemason, Zionists and Roman Catholic Bankers. These bona fide psychopaths control our economy and our wealth. (Those who control economy, control everything)  
The only criteria of power and wealth is nothing but corruption and exploitation of others. Today, no one can become powerful and wealthy without exploiting others.  
 
Honesty, Righteousness, virtue etc. these are only found in books today and not in reality. Have you ever heard of someone becoming billionaire working honestly? If yes then please tell me how?  
 
When corruption and exploitation is the criteria of becoming strong and influential, how can you expect men of power and influence to change? If they would've had the tendency to change, they wouldn't be powerful and influential.  
 
I would like to ask another Question here;  
 
Why only a constitution or a system that needs power and influence to be implemented?  
Do you think Quran is a constitution that can only be implemented if wealthy, powerful and influential people change their minds and start giving back what they earned by aggression and exploitation?  
Is it only for wealthy and influential segment of the society? Whats my fault if I am not influential?  
Billions of people do not have wealth or influence. Is it their fault that the rich and strong people of their society are not willing to step up? Why should they suffer?  
 
Why mankind is the addressee? Why not rich, powerful and influential people have been addressed then?  
 
Come on brother, Quran must be something more than just a constitution or a system only to be implemented with the help of power and influence. Don't you think so?  
Or am I wasting my time trying to comprehend a "constitution" which is useless for me if I am not rich and influential.  
 
Or should I go back to the traditional Mullah Modudi kind of interpretation (based on myths and dogmas) again?  
At least I would be able to say that Quran is for me coz it tells me how to perform my rituals, what to eat, what to drink, how many women to marry at a time etc. etc.

Dear Aurangzaib,Talib, Junaid ! I appreciate brotherAurangzaib’s desire,but beg to differ with his inference to establish the quranic-state through the course of actions he described. Although Alkitab gives the directions for the course of actions to be exercised to establish the welfare state,but mind, Qura’n is not a volume of constitution which needs to be implemented in any society, rather this Alkitab, provide values and standard to set the constitutions and to testify the already legislated volume of any society, plz read the verses 5/41-50. It also warns the people about the consequences might faced, if found deviated, in any aspect of life. Remember, the constitution of any society will be legislated according to the will of their people.  
 
The especial attention to be paid at the verse 5/48, this verse clearly indicats that, if any society has already set constitution, and claims its divinity (knowledge based on their struggle or extracted from Alkitab), then this ALKITAB(qura’n) will testify its validity.  
 
This book is like touch stone; let every jeweler check the purity of its gold he possessed, no matter the design and style of ornaments. Or this book is like a quality and standers control laboratory, which calibrates and verifies the instruments used in any industry, also warn the possible malfunction if used with errors.  
 
The welfare states or any other ,based on to care the human rights, will be called ISLAMIC ,IF VERIFIED BY qura'n.

I have valuable comments of Brothers Junaid and Moazzam.  
Both are right in their assessments.  
But Brother Junaid is pessimistic and Brother Moazzam is slightly away from the focal point of discussion.  
The focal point is WHAT STEPS TO BE TAKEN TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE IN OUR GOVERNMENT IN ORDER TO CONVERT IT INTO A QURANIC VALUES-BASED GOVERNMENT.  
 
Brother Junaid painted a gloomy picture of total disappointment and hopelessness. He thinks, on the basis of ground realities, that no MALAAIKA would ever come up to help organize the Quranics to succeed in their mission. But I would request Brother Junaid to be optimistic; otherwise, as he already feared, we all may abandon our mission and revert to Mulla-ism. Please show alternative practical steps, as against the ones I have detailed.  
 
Say, for example, that if an ideal government was never established in history, let us try to establish one now. According to Quran, it has ultimately to be established, even though after an apocalypse or the promised Armageddon. But we are advised by Almighty to work hard for its establishment so that more bloodshed can be avoided.  
 
There are also signs that some MALAAIKA are shifting into first gear to drive towards our direction.  
 
Brother Moazzam emphasized the importance of the Book, which all of us already appreciate. But, we were talking about how to establish an Islamic/Quranic state. What practical steps, if any, to be taken please?  
 
Thanks both brothers for writing.

Salaam;  
 
Brother Aurangzaib, thank you for your kind reply and thanks for enlightening me with your vision.  
I really appreciate your optimism and a positive approach. However, you have not answered the following question;  
 
Do you really think Quran is only for MALAIKA to come up and implement?  
Do you really think it's of no use for those who don;t have power, wealth and influence?  
Why mankind is the addressee? Why not the influential people or MALAIKA?  
Why do you think common man (without wealth and influence) can do nothing in terms of implementation?  
 
Dear brother, I would really appreciate if you could come up with a straight YES or NO followed by a proper justification :)

Dear all,  
 
A small ball of snow doesn't know that it is going to become an avalanche when it rolls down the slope. Similarly, when individuals start implementing the Quran, unexpected results can come. However, it would take a lot of time and patience. Most of us are armchair intellectuals and the more we go from one discussion to another, the more engrossed we become in them. In the quran, we find verses addressed to mankind in general and mu'mineen in specific (ya ayyuhallazina aamanu...). All muslims (as per quranic definition) are not necessarily mu'min. The quran exhorts the mu'min to act for the betterment of mankind. I don't think that you require wealth and power to be mu'min. What you need is the deep seated conviction in the divine message and urgency to do it.  
 
If we study the example of Muhammad (s.a.w), he had to strive very hard for the first 10 years. Even then, he had to migrate to Madina to escape the hostilities. During his first battle with the opponents, he had just 300+ supporters. This was the result after 10 years of effort. Yet, in the next 13 years, he established the Islamic state that we want to emulate. During his time, he had to face the fiercest tribes and the most powerful men.  
 
Did he wait for the right moment? Did he wait for resources to accumulate? Did he have the entire quran in the beginning? Did he have too many people who put faith in him immediately? He didn't. He took it up as his duty to follow the quran in letter in spirit. His striving resulted in unparalleled history.  
 
If you are guided by the Creator Himself, do you have to wait and think? We have to start living the quran and everything else will follow. The lack of will to do so can be ascribed to lack of conviction. Sounds harsh, but that's the way it is. If we have power within, political and economic power will eventually be ours. The snowball only needs a bit of momentum to become an avalanche.

Brother Junaid and Brother Al-Ahmar,  
 
A quick answer taking into account both brothers' reflections.  
 
Brother Junaid said :  
 
"Brother Aurangzaib, thank you for your kind reply and thanks for enlightening me with your vision.  
I really appreciate your optimism and a positive approach. However, you have not answered the following question;  
Do you really think Quran is only for MALAIKA to come up and implement?  
Do you really think it's of no use for those who don;t have power, wealth and influence?  
Why mankind is the addressee? Why not the influential people or MALAIKA?  
Why do you think common man (without wealth and influence) can do nothing in terms of implementation?  
 
Dear brother, I would really appreciate if you could come up with a straight YES or NO followed by a proper justification :)"  
 
Aurangzaib:  
 
ACCORDING TO QURAN, Nuzool-e-Malaaika is a pre-requisite, my dear. Even Rusool needed malaaika to help him advance in his movement. The theory is not difficult to comprehend. You just have to keep the definition of Malaaika in view all the time. And NO! there is no mythology involved!  
 
Malaaika: People of Power, influence, resources, etc.  
Such people as when they become your companion, their help gets you access to your goals by removing many obstacles and impediments from your way. Money is the first and the foremost obstacle even when there is plenty of enthusiasm.  
 
Early history of Islamic movement tells us that the Rusool could only openly declare and expose his movement when he acquired the allegiance of Hazrat Omar al-Farooq. Hence Omar bin Khattab was a confirmed Man of Power and Influence (MALAK) of that time.  
 
Earlier, Rasool is reported to have prayed Allah to convert one of the two Powerful people in his favour, viz., Omar bin Khattab and Abu Johal. (may not be authentic)  
 
And from Quran;  
See for example: 25/25-28 :  
وَيَوْمَ تَشَقَّقُ السَّمَاءُ بِالْغَمَامِ وَنُزِّلَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ تَنزِيلًا ﴿٢٥﴾ الْمُلْكُ يَوْمَئِذٍ الْحَقُّ لِلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ۚ وَكَانَ يَوْمًا عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ عَسِيرًا ﴿٢٦﴾ وَيَوْمَ يَعَضُّ الظَّالِمُ عَلَىٰ يَدَيْهِ يَقُولُ يَا لَيْتَنِي اتَّخَذْتُ مَعَ الرَّسُولِ سَبِيلًا ﴿٢٧﴾ يَا وَيْلَتَىٰ لَيْتَنِي لَمْ أَتَّخِذْ فُلَانًا خَلِيلًا ﴿٢٨﴾  
 
And the period when skies would split asunder and Malaaika would emerge. The Government (Domain) that hour would turn into a Beneficient one; and the hour would be of distress for the antagonists; that hour the tyrant would bite his hands in regret and would wish he could have been on good terms with the Rusool (new ruler); and that he should not have been in league with so and so…….  
 
And 97/5:  
إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَاهُ فِي لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ ﴿١﴾ وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ ﴿٢﴾ لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ ﴿٣﴾ تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ ﴿٤﴾ سَلَامٌ هِيَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ الْفَجْرِ ﴿٥﴾  
We have presented Quran in the darkness of divine decree/values/standards/yardstick; what would explain to you what is the darkness of decree/values; a darkness of decree/values proves better than a thousand months in the sense that, during this period, Men of Power and Influence (Malaaika), and WAHI with their Nourisher’s law, emerge; and then peace prevails in all affairs, leading to the spread of enlightenment all over.  
 
And Verse 41/30:  
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّـهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ ﴿٣٠﴾  
 
Those who affirmed that Allah alone was to be their Nourisher/Sustainer and then remained steadfast on this conviction, People of Power and Influence (Malaaika) would join them advising them not to fear in their struggle, and not to grieve upon their afflictions; and would offer glad tidings of Jannah of which you were promised.  
 
And Verse 8/9:  
إِذْ تَسْتَغِيثُونَ رَبَّكُمْ فَاسْتَجَابَ لَكُمْ أَنِّي مُمِدُّكُم بِأَلْفٍ مِّنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ مُرْدِفِينَ ﴿٩﴾  
 
And when you were requesting your Nourisher’s help, and then He responded by committing a thousand of People of Power (Malaaika) for you…….  
 
There are many more; but the above is sufficient to drive the point home that no movement, whatever kind, can succeed unless helped by “resources, influence, etc.”. And that fact is divinely ordained.  
 
You can rest assured Brothers, whatever this humble students talks about, it is not his vision, but only his understanding from QURAN. Yes, I agree, understandings from Quran can be slightly different in different cases; but that's not important as along as we continue learning from our intimate brotherly exchanges.  
 
God bless you.

Brother aurangzaib, you said;  
 
(Malaaika: People of Power, influence, resources, etc.  
Such people as when they become your companion, their help gets you access to your goals by removing many obstacles and impediments from your way. Money is the first and the foremost obstacle even when there is plenty of enthusiasm.) by aurangzaib  
 
I have no reason to contradict your statement and I have no logic to argue right now. In fact this is another bright idea and a good interpretation of the term MALAIKA. I don't know why but since I started exploring the magnificent Quran , my ideas, my assumptions, my thoughts, my analysis and interpretation seems to be changing as I am learning more. Not sure whether it's a good sign or bad, but my concepts are changing every time I learn something new.  
Your interpretation of the term MALAIKA (which of course is very logical and quite relevant), made me think about another aspect. As you said MALAIKA are the people of power and influence and they are the individuals from our own society, what do you think about their efforts? What I mean to say is that obviously these MALAIKA will come up with some efforts and will contribute their money to reform the society.  
All the efforts and all the contribution from MALAIKA, what will that be known as?  
To explain further, lets take an example;  
Lets assume a person who qualifies the term MALAIKA due to his wealth and influence. When this person gets involved in the process of reformation, he will have to spend his wealth on urgent basis (a crash program) to get things moving. He will have to provide means of living to all the deprived ones and will have to support those who are unable to earn their living. (FAQEER, MASKEEN etc.)  
Huge contribution of wealth for social reform, what will this act (FI SABEEL ALLAH) be known as?  
Obviously it cannot be ZAKAT which is a mandatory, constant and unconditional contribution in growth and development by every individual of the society regardless of their fields or grades.  
 
Can it be SADQAH?  
 
BTW: I would like to share an example of influential people in Pakistan;  
 
http://www.siasat.pk/forum/showthread.php?53875-What-the-Hell-Locals-kissing-feet-and-hands-of-Malik-(land-lord)  
 
This is just one example from Interior Punjab. Conditions in SIndh and Baluchistan are even worst.  
How can we expect such people to come up and reform the society?

Dear Aurangzaib, brother Junaid ! Please read the verses 2/246--252, I do agree with Aurangzaib bhai. In addition with following points 1:- At initial stage, we are bound to follow up the foot-steps of prophets NOHA ,SHOEB,ZAKARIA,SALEH,LUQMAAN, and others of same catagory to work on masses minds, keeping in view the SURAH MUZZAMIL / MUDDASSIR 2:- We should follow the prophets IBRAHIM and ISMAIL to put our efforts, to interpret the VALUES AND TERMINOLOGIOES written in Quran in a true sense (WA IS YARFAO IBRAHIM ALQAWAIDA MIN ALBAIT WA ISMAIL) that is the setting up society's constitution as per qura'n ) 3:- We should steadfast with the Verse 41/30:  
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّـهُ ثُمَّ اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ ﴿٣٠﴾

Dear Brother Moazzam,  
 
Thanks for understanding. It is all about the correct comprehension of Divine Verses. No personal concepts involved.  
 
Brother Junaid,  
 
Thanks for following the pertinent verses.  
 
About your question in your following paragraph :  
 
"MALAIKA will come up with some efforts and will contribute their money to reform the society.  
All the efforts and all the contribution from MALAIKA, what will that be known as?  
To explain further, lets take an example; Lets assume a person who qualifies the term MALAIKA due to his wealth and influence. When this person gets involved in the process of reformation, he will have to spend his wealth on urgent basis (a crash program) to get things moving. He will have to provide means of living to all the deprived ones and will have to support those who are unable to earn their living. (FAQEER, MASKEEN etc.)  
Huge contribution of wealth for social reform, what will this act (FI SABEEL ALLAH) be known as?  
Obviously it cannot be ZAKAT which is a mandatory, constant and unconditional contribution in growth and development by every individual of the society regardless of their fields or grades."  
 
Actually, you only went a little bit too far with the concept of MALAAIKA. They will help in paving the way towards your TAMAKKAN FIL ARDH, viz., towards success of your movement and establishment of your Authority as a government. That's all the divine verdict says. They would not only help with resources, but with their influence, etc. Once established, Of course, then the reforms will become the Divine Government's collective duty and they would perform it with State's resources.  
 
You still have some confusion about ZAKAT's concept too. Allow me to clear it once for all.  
ZAKAT is the sustenance provided to the needy by a Welfare Government. It's not something given by wealthy to the poor or to the Government. It's the other way around. See again 22/41. Who would establish the system of ZAKAT? Those installed on the seats of Power - the Government. I hope it is clear now.  
 
Your Question:  
Can it be SADQAH?  
 
Answer: SADAQAAT are taxes, that are recovered from people' incomes and wealth, and form the basis of Government's revenue.  
See 9/103:  
خُذْ مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِمْ صَدَقَةً تُطَهِّرُهُمْ وَتُزَكِّيهِم بِهَا وَصَلِّ عَلَيْهِمْ ۖ إِنَّ صَلَاتَكَ سَكَنٌ لَّهُمْ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ ﴿١٠٣﴾  
Recover/receive from their wealth TAXES, with that you would cleanse their spirits and arrange their sustenance/nourishment (تزکیھم ); and encourage them; verily your encouragement is a consolation for them.......  
 
So you see that the word "KHUZ" is an imperative (فعل امر ), which means SADAQAAT are a MANDATORY Payment, which must be a State Due, viz., TAXES.  
 
At long last, Friend, this ends your queries.

(You still have some confusion about ZAKAT's concept too. ZAKAT is the sustenance provided to the needy by a Welfare Government ... SADAQAAT are taxes, that are recovered from people' incomes and wealth) by aurangzaib  
 
Brother aurangzaib, In fact this concept is a bit new for me and frankly speaking, I cannot find any logic to disagree with you. However, I would like to do some research based on your concepts to analyze the situation on my own.  
I would like to request you to please tell me how sure are you that your concepts are 100% correct?  
Also please provide some references to justify your concepts of Zakaat and Sadqaat if possible.  
I would really appreciate your help in this regard.

Brother Aurangzaib, You really are a GENIUS!  
 
I don't know why this concept was hidden from my eyes. Thank you so much for guiding me to the right path.  
 
ZAKAAT means an economic system based on the concept of justice, equality and social welfare. It is the duty and responsibility of government or Central authority (22:41).  
SADAQAH is a component of this system (ZAKAAT) which deals with collection and distribution of wealth. Just like concept of TAX where someone earning more will have to contribute more.  
 
Justice simply means that if I am working hard, I deserve a better standard of living as compared to one who is too lazy to work. A person earning 10000$ a month should enjoy a different standard of living as compared to one who is putting in less efforts and earning 3000$ a month. All he need to do is to pay TAX in proportion to his earning.  
 
(46:19) And for all there will be ranks according to what they did so that He may recompense their actions. And they will face no injustice. (merit will not be violated)  
 
Basic necessities should be the minimum sustenance provided by government (in form of social security) to cover health, education, food and shelter. Process of collection and distribution has clearly been defined in Quran and nowhere does it says that two individual putting in different efforts deserves same standard of living.  
If someone is not working and still enjoying the standard of living equivalent to a hardworking individual, it wont be justice (as per my understanding).  
 
(6:165) He determines your ranks, some above others (according to His laws). He tries you in what He has given you, for your Lord is Swift in grasping.  
 
This verse clearly shows the ranking in a particular society based on abilities and potential of individuals where people who earn more should contribute more in form of tax. There is no restriction as such on becoming rich if you are working harder than others. Just one condition though, which says wealth should not be allowed to circulate exclusively among wealthy.  
(59:07) ... So that it may not keep revolving between the wealthy among you...  
 
Another example of better results for better efforts.  
 
(53:38) No laden one shall bear the load of another.  
(53:39) Every human being shall be responsible for his works, and compensated for, his labor.  
(53:40) His effort will be seen.  
 
Use of word "AAMILEEN" in 9:60 clearly means salaries for government officials performing the duties of collection and distribution. This is clear evidence that SADAQAH is a constant process of collection and distribution.  
 
Anyway; I do have one question in this regard and I have already raised this question at the following discussion thread;

I would really appreciate to have your comments on it.
