    Have you used our zakat calculator reading description of each box?

    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.

      Yes Faisal I read the whole thing and used it too. It covers some of the items I listed. I was wondering if there was a quick reference list or perhaps the Zakat calculator may be enhanced to provide a list of all the scenarios I listed and more.

      There’s no need for any comprehensive list. I can’t go over your complete list because most if it is redundant if you read the descriptions in the calculator, but I will comment on a few:

      #1, #2: already accounted for in the calculator

      #3, #6, #7: no limits as long as those savings are genuinely for the stated purpose

      #8 all personal assets are exempt
