  • Can The Rate Of Zakat Change?

    Posted by Khurram on March 11, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Zakat @2.5% was set during the khuifa rashideen period.

    So is it a must to pay Zakat at this rate or it may vary as the rate it is not fixed in Islam.

    Zakat and its rates have been given to us through Sunnah and cannot be changed. They have existed since the very beginning – even Judaism and Christianity mention the same rates of Zakat as are upheld by Islam.

    The rate of zakat is 2.5% on assets only. There are other rates of zakat on earnings / production as well. Please refer to Ghamidi sahab’s book Meezan for details.
