Zakat ul Mal


“Charity is for the poor and needy, and those employed to administer the funds; for recent converts; for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of Allah; and for the wayfarer: Thus is ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom”

“إِنَّمَا الصَّدَقَاتُ لِلْفُقَرَاءِ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَالْعَامِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا وَالْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَالْغَارِمِينَ وَفِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ”

Nisab is the exemption limit for the payment of Zakah. If a Muslim’s net yearly savings falls below this amount, he or she is exempt from paying Zakah. Only those whose net capital exceeds the nisab value are obliged to give Zakah. The nisab amount is calculated based on the market value of 85 grams of 24 karat gold.

For Ramadan 2021, the Nisab value is $4,780, below which your savings are not liable for Zakah.

Keep in mind that in addition to cash, Zakah is also owed on gold, silver, investments, rent income, business merchandise and profits, shares, and bonds if they are saved in accounts for over one “Hawl” or one Hijri year. Any of these must be taken into account when determining the Zakah amount.
