In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Zakāh is due upon every Muslim who is sane, adult, and possesses the Nisāb which equals the value of approximately 612.36 grams of silver or more.

After the expiry of one year, Zakāh is due upon all cash money, gold, silver, and trade stock in your ownership.  You may refer to the following link for a detailed explanation on Zakāh:
