Title: Zakaat query

Question

Assalaamwaleykum This questions is related to zakat I am not working yet my age is 22 year and I have 165000 Indian rupees all are savings from my childhood should I am eligible to pay zakat on that money or not one more now a days I am going to factory with my father some times he gives me 7500 per month not fix every month .

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The Nisaab of Zakaat is 87.479 grams of gold and 612.35 grams of silver, or its equivalent in cash.[i] Thereafter, the following year, on the same date of the lunar calendar, one will have to give Zakat if one has Zakatable assets equivalent to the Nisaab on that date each year.[ii]

In the enquired situation, if your total cash is above the Nisaab of Zakat, then you will have to give 2.5% of that amount in Zakat.

يس فيما دون مائتي درهم صدقة فإذا كانت مائتي درهم وحال عليها الحول ففيها خمسة دراهم

باب زكاة العروض

الزكاة واجبة في عروض التجارة كائنة ما كانت إذا بلغت قميتها نصابا من الذهب أو الورق يقومها بما هو أنفع للفقراء والمساكين منهما

وإذا كان النصاب كاملا في طرفي الحول فنقصانه فيما بين ذلك لا يسقط الزكاة

وتضم قيمة العروض إلى الذهب والفضة وكذلك يضم الذهب إلى الفضة بالقيمة حتى يتم النصاب عند أبي حنيفة
