Question

A female been an house wife and collects the pocket money given by her husband, does she needs to pay zakat on this amount. The pocket money is amount to 2 lakh taka.

 

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

 

After deducting her expenses, if she has more than the value of nisāb (the minimum amount required to necessitate zakāh), then she will have to pay zakāh on the money she is collecting.

And Allah knows best

Wassalaamu `alaykum
