When the Prophet sent Muadh to YemenNarrated Ibn Abbas:
When the Prophet sent Muadh to Yemen, he said to him, "You are going to a nation
from the people of the Scripture, so let the first thing to which you will invite them,
be the Tauhid of Allah.
If they learn that, tell them that Allah has enjoined on them,
five prayers to be offered in one day and one night. And if they pray, tell them that
Allah has enjoined on them Zakat of their properties and it is to be taken from the
rich among them and given to the poor. And if they agree to that, then take from
them Zakat but avoid the best property of the people."
