Neymar for $10M
BARCELONA---Barcelona is suing
Neymar for the €8.5 million euro
($10 million) bonus it paid the Brazil
striker for signing a contract he lat-
er broke tojoin Paris Saint-Germain
on a world-record transfer.
Barcelona said yesterday that it wants
Neymar to pay back the bonus for a con-
tract in October 2016 that tied him to
the club through 2021. It also wants an
additional 10 per cent interest.
Neymar was able to leave Barcelona
earlier this month after PSG paid 222
million euros ($262 million) to trigger a
release clause included in his contract.
Barcelona said in a statement that it
"has taken these actions in defence of
its interests after the unilateral breaking
of the contract carried out by Neymar
just a few months after having signed
The club is also demanding that PSG
pay the money, if Neymar is unable to
do so. Barcelona said the suit was filed
on August 11. (AP)

ZUL-HIJJAH 1438 A.H.
Meaning and Signifcance of the Month:
Zul-Hijjah is the last month in the Islamic Lunar Calendar. The meaning of the word Zul-Hijjah is the month of "Hajj"
About the month of Zul-Hijjah:- The ffth pillar of Islam “Hajj” is performed in this sacred month. The frst ten days of
Zul-Hijjah are the most virtuous days in this whole month; Hajj is performed amongst these ten days.
Ahadeeth related to Zul-Hijjah: Hadhrat Abu Haraira (R.A) reports from the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi
wa sallam): Amongst all days there are none better to engage in sole worship of Allah (SWT) than in the ten days of Zul-
Hijjah. To observe a fast on any of these days is equivalent to fasting throughout the year, to actively engage in prayer
and worship throughout any of these nights holds such rewarding values levelling with “night of power” (Laylatul-Qadr)
It has been stated in the Holy Qur’an :- “By the dawn, by the ten nights (ie. the frst ten days of the month of Zul-Hijjah),
and by the even and the odd (of all the creations of Allah) and by night when it departs. There is indeed in them (the above
oaths) suffcient proofs for men of understanding (and that they should avoid all kinds of sins and disbelief). Hadhrat
Abi Qataadah (R.A) reports in a part narration from the Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) concerning the fast
observed on the day of Arafaat: “I have full confdence in Allah (SWT) for the one who observes a fast on the day of
Arafaat that his previous year’s sins and the proceeding year’s sins are forgiven.” (Muslim).
1) The Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) performed the farewell Hajj and gave the
historic sermon known as the “Farewell Sermon”.
2 ) Egypt was conquered by the army sent by Hadhart Umar (R.A.)
3) Uthmaan (R.A.) was appointed the 3rd. Caliph
4) “Bay’ate-Aqabah” took place.
Matrimonies within Zul-Hijjah:
Hadhrat Fatimah (R.A.) was married in this holy month to the fourth Caliph Hadhrat Ali (R.A.)
Deaths in Zul-Hijjah:
Two famous deaths which took place in this month:
(1) Hadhrat Umar (R.A.) met martyrdom on 27th of Zul-Hijjah 26 A.H.
(2) Hadhrat Uthmaan (R.A) was martyred on 18th Zul-Hijjah 35 A.H.
