One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

As salaam Alaikum Bhai,

 

I would like to know while weighing the GOLD to calculate ZAKAT, the DIAMOND jewellery which are embedded on to gold should be considered all together in weight, or GOLD seperate and DIAMOND separate, kindly comment??? Furthermore when we have a shop and its is given on rental, please advise the ZAKAT will be on the total value of the SHOP or on the INCOME which is coming thru this shop.  Looking forward to hear from you soon.

Answer:

 

Zakah on gold and stones diamonds

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: I would like to know while weighing the GOLD to calculate ZAKAT, the DIAMOND jewellery which are embedded on to gold should be considered all together in weight, or GOLD seperate and DIAMOND separate, kindly comment???

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 1558 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As

A woman came to the Messenger of Allah (saws) and she was accompanied by her daughter who wore two heavy gold bangles in her hands. He (saws) said to her: Do you pay zakat on them? She said: No. He (saws) then said: Are you pleased that Allah may put two bangles of fire on your hands? Thereupon she took them off and placed them before the Prophet (saws) saying: They are for Allah and His Messenger (saws) (to distribute to the poor as they will).

 

You need to determine the value of your jewelry, including both the value of the gold and the value of the precious stones, and pay its annual zakah at the rate of 2.50%. It is only obvious that the value of precious stones cannot be determined by weight like it is in gold.thus the value has to be determined separately and the zakah paid on the combined value annually at the rate of 2.50%.

 

Your Question: Furthermore when we have a shop and its is given on rental, please advise the ZAKAT will be on the total value of the SHOP or on the INCOME which is coming thru this shop.  Looking forward to hear from you soon.

The rental income of the property is absolutely immaterial when determining the zakah of the property; one would be liable to pay the annual zakah on the market value of the property at the rate of 2.50%.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
