    Zakat percentages are: 2.5%, 5%, 10% & 20%

    I have trying to understand more on this and my two questions are:

    1. What is the source of these percentages. Is there any book or text that can be referred. I have already seen the lecture clips of Ghamidi sahib but the source I cannot find.

    2. Can some examples be provided in which cases these percentages would apply relevant to todays time and environment apart from cattle etc etc but using todays example of earnings and assets.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    With many thanks

    The source of Zakat percentages on assets and production is the sunnah that has reached us with ijma and tawatur.

    You will find the information and videos in the following discussion helpful. Several cases of contemporary situations in regards to Zakat have been addressed in the videos:

    Finally, you may enter appropriate numbers in our Zakat Calculator after reading the 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 each category. It is a great way to learn the sharia of zakat.
