How should I calculate the sum of money I have to pay an outstanding Zakaat. money for all my life) if I am 34 and I have never paid it properly. Or should I do something else on top of it.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Please advise how much money I have to pay as otstanding zakaat. I am 34 and I gave zakaat from time to time but it was much more less than I had to give. I was now aware that zakaat equals 2,5%. I have known it recently. It means I have never paid it properly. Perhaps there is something I have to do in addition to or instead of outstanding payment. Thank you in advance.

Answer

Kindly refer attached – Calculation of Zakaat.

If you have underpaid Zakaat, you should calculate the underpaid amount and
discharge it now.
