Assalamu Alaikum Mufti Sahib.
I am in need of your guidance regarding the payment of my Zakat Due. Kindly help me out with respect to the same.
I started earning in the month of August 2017. I haven’t paid for my Zakah since then. Alhamdulillah, my salary is 8500 AED per month. I saved around 7000 AED per month excluding all my expenses.
Kindly help me out with the detailed calculation to date and the payment of Zakah of all this duration.

For the duration of August 2017 to March 2019 (20 months), you would have saved up 140000 AED (7000 x 20). Thus, you need to give 2.5% of this amount in Zakah which is 3500 AED.
Only Allah knows best
