Q: I have tried calculating my zakaat but unfortunately I get quite confused when gold is added. Will really appreciate some guidance on this.
1. I recently married and received pieces of jewellery which is less than 85 grams in total. Am I liable to pay zakaat on this?
2. I currently have 2 (1 oz) Kruger coins as well as 2 Mandela coins. When I researched the grams its 28.35 grams = 1 Ounce. The mandela coins have 5.1 grams of Gold and 2.68 grams of silver. Am I liable to pay zakaat on this?
I also have cash but shukr at least this I know how to calculate.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
