Do I have to pay Zakaat on the gold and silver jewellery?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I have gold and silver jewellery to the value of R12,000 and a liability of R28,000.

Answer

If you have other Zakaatable assets besides the gold and silver jewellery, its value should be added to the value of the gold and silver jewellery as well. If the liability of R28,000.00 exceeds the value if the assets there is no Zakaat. However, if there is an excess which is equivalent or more than the Nisaab amount, Zakaat will be payable on the excess only. There is no Zakaat on jewellery except on pure gold and pure silver.
