Giving Your Zakat
Every adult Muslim whose wealth exceeds the value of nisab, must pay Zakat. Zakat should be calculated and paid on any surplus wealth that you have owned for at least one lunar year. Those who are eligible to receive Zakat payments are those with very little or no income, those who have just entered Islam, those who are in hardship or debt, stranded travellers, those who are working in the cause of Allah.

Do I have to pay Zakat?
The more Zakat that is paid, the more beneficial it is to the poor and needy. Before you pay Zakat you’ll need to work out whether you’re obligated to pay Zakat by looking at whether what you own meets the nisab. Pay Zakat
The value of the nisab in prophetic tradition is 87.48 grams of pure gold or 612.36 grams of pure silver so the monetary value of the nisab will vary according to current prices. It requires giving a calculated amount (usually 2.5%) to the poor and needy. Pay Zakat
