Zakat

إِنَّمَا ٱلصَّدَقَـٰتُ لِلْفُقَرَآءِ وَٱلْمَسَـٰكِينِ وَٱلْعَـٰمِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا وَٱلْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَفِى ٱلرِّقَابِ

وَٱلْغَـٰرِمِينَ وَفِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ وَٱبْنِ ٱلسَّبِيلِ ۖ فَرِيضَةً مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ

Charity is only for the poor and the needy, for the administrators, for recent converts, for those in bondage and in debt, for Allah’s cause, and for the wayfarer. This is ordained by Allah, and Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom. [Quran 9:60]

NISAB VALUE FOR 2022

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 2022, the Nisab value is $7,200, 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.
