My Wife does not work. Does she have to pay Zakaat on this?

Question:

Assalamu Alaikum,

My wife has some gold jewelry that was given to her by her parents and myself. The cost of it is way pass the nisaab for Zakaat. My Wife does not work. Does she have to pay Zakaat on this? If yes, is it calculated the same way?

Jazaak Allah.


Answer:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

Yes, she has to pay Zakaat on the jewelry, and it will be calculated on the same way as other jewelries. That is, it must be weighed to see if it has crossed the weight for gold (as nisaab) and pay upon it.

And Allah knows best,
