    If a married woman who has no employment income receives gift from her father. How much zakat will be due? 2.5% from annual wealth assessment or 20% since this is a gift? Does it make a difference if the father is paying it out of zakat paid assets?

    Gifts are not production / earning so only the asset zakat will be due. On the day your zakat is due, you would pay 2.5% on the sum total of whatever wealth you have which may include any assets you might have received as gifts.

    Please use our Zakat Calculator to play around with it and understand how zakat is calculated. There’s also a FAQ attached to it which might be worth your time.
