For nisab of production/earnings one should use government’s tax exemption for salaried people. In case there is no such exemption available, one can use the nisab of amount equivalent to 653 kg of dates. If your yearly earnings are above that amount then zakat becomes due.
For zakat on assets, again one should use the nisab provided by the government. In case where they don’t provide a nisab, one should use 642g of silver as nisab.
Please enter appropriate numbers in our Zakat Calculator after reading description for each box. When you reach the end, it will generate a statement showing you exactly what you owe after any applicable deductions, and what percentage was applied to what. It’s also a great way to learn the sharia of zakat.
Please correct me for salaries the nisab should be applied for each salary or yearly income? My understanding is that nisab is applied every time there is a produce. Since, salary is a produce per month hence, nisab is also applicable per month ie if monthly income is more than 653 KG dates.
Another thing that needs further ijtihad is as how much amount per kg should be taken while converting dates into money?
Eg the whole sale rates are different which would actually apply to agricultural produce.
Would it be fine to consider the price of dates that a zakat giving person chooses him/herself from market. Since types of dates may vary in price also.
So as per your answer if produce is to be consider yearly, zakat on salary is also to be considered yearly?
What I understood from Ghamidi Sahab is that Zakat is payable the time we get salary. Plus agricultural produce is at the harvest which may be twice thrice etc a year. Its not about yearly i guess it is monthly for salary.
Kindly confirm from Hasan Bhai again. Will be very thankful for clarification.
