Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Can Zakat only be paid in the month of Ramadan, or any time of the year?
In the Name of Allah, with blessings & peace on the Beloved of Allah, and his folk and all lovers of Allah
Zakat can be paid at any time, and should not be unduly delayed. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar] The virtue of paying one’s Zakat in Ramadan is in that charity and good deeds are multiplied in this month.
