gold plated saucers…I bought these plates, they have gold plating on them of 24 karat gold. am I liable for zakaat on them?

I bought these plates which have the Kaaba and Medina Haram on them, they have gold plating on them of 24 karat gold, the gold is just a line on the edge of the plate, am I liable for zakaat on them?

Answer

At the outset, we should understand that there is a difference between 24 Carat gold and 24 Carat gold plated.

Gold plating is not pure gold. Zakaat is liable only in 24 Carat gold, not gold plating.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
