  • 10% Zakat On Salary

    Posted by Syed Kashif Mahmood on March 19, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    السلام علیکم

    غامدی صاحب کے مطابق

    ذکوٰۃ کی شرح تنخواہ دارکے لئے دس فیصد ہے

    گویا بارہ مہینوں میں سے کم از کم ایک مہینہ کی تنخواہ ۔

    لیکن آج کل مہنگائی بہت زیادہ ہے ۔ پہلے ہی مشکل سے گزارہ ہو رہا ہے تو ایک متوسط شخص کیا کرے۔

  • 10% Zakat On Salary

    It’s true that in Ghamidi sahab’s opinion zakat on salaries is 10%. However, please note that whatever direct or indirect taxes you pay to the government are deductible from your zakat. For most salaried people who pay employment taxes and other government taxes (e.g. sales tax) this zakat actually turns out to be negligible if anything at all.

    جی شکریہ۔ پوچھنے کا مقصد یہ تھا کہ تخوادار کے لئے کوئی نصاب بھی ہے کہ نہیں۔ جیسے اگر کوئی دکان پہ دس ہزار ماہانہ پے لگا ہوا ہے ۔ وو گورنمنٹ کا ملازم نہیں ہے ۔ اس کا سواۓ سیلز ٹیکس کچھ نہیں

    deduct

    ۔ ہو رہا لیکن بڑی مشکل سے گزارا ہو رہا ہے ۔ کیا اس پہ بھی زکات واجب یا فرض ہے ؟

    Nisab is only for zakat on assets. Production / salary zakat is due on everyone regardless of any nisab.

    There’s some confusion on my part regarding nisab on salary. Please wait while I clarify this and I will post a proper response here.

    Zakat is applicable on gross amount but only when it reaches Nisab, which is different for both Year-end wealth and for Production. Please find summarized law of Zakat here:

    However, there can be difference of opinion on whether Zakat percentage should be applied on amount only above Nisab threshold or on the whole amount as soon as it crosses the Nisab threshold. Please see these responses of Ghamidi Sahab in this regard:

    As per Ghamidi Sahab, since it is responsibility of the Government to fix Nisab for zakat heads like Salary etc. So in the absence of any such appropriation by the Government, we can use tax exemption level for salaried individuals as Zakat Nisab on Salary produce for the time being. But it is based on His ijjihaad.

    First of all I apologize for my mistake above. I have verified with Hassan Ilyas sahab and following is the correct understanding:

    The nisab for production / earnings is the minimum amount below which your state exempts tax or zakat. If your state does not provide a nisab then you can use the standard nisab of 653 kilograms of dates.

    اگر ایک شخص چھ لاکھ سالانہ کما رہا ہے اور قریباً ساڑھے تین سے چار لاکھ خرچ کر رہا ہے تو

    17%

    کے حساب سے 68000 روپے جنرل سیلز ٹیکس وہ ادا کر رہا ہے ۔ جبکہ سالانہ 600000 کی کل آمدن کا

    10%=60000

    بنتا ہے ۔ کیا اسکی زکات ادا ہو گئی؟

  • Faisal Haroon

    Moderator March 20, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Correct. If the zakat due on the person is 60,000 and he has already paid 68,000 in sales tax then he does not owe any additional zakat.

    چاہے گوورنمنٹ اسلامی ہو یا غیر اسلامی؟

    اگر ایسا ہی ہے تو پاکستانی حکومتیں اس تصور کو پھیلاتی کیوں نہیں؟

    یہ ٹیکس کولیکشن اگر عبادت کے تصور سے ہو تو یقیناً کرپشن میں بھی کمی ہو؟
