Zakat On Salary After Paying 15% Tax On It
Asalam u alaikum!
I am paying 15 % tax approx (actual rate might be higher as tax is calculated differently) on my salary in UK plus I am also paying around 8% national insurance which is contributing towards State pension.
After paying all that, in the end I don’t have much left to save and sometimes have to rely on credit card to cover for extra expenses. Then pay the card by next month salary.
My question is how I am supposed to pay 10% zakat from my salary if I end up spending all of it? And also if I am paying more than 10% in the form of tax to the govt?
Can you please explain that? As my understanding is zakat is applicable on savings saved for one year.
