How to calculate Zakat

To calculate Zakat you have to add the financial value of all liable assets. Only those assets that have been in your possession for at least one year should be included for Zakat. Dues are also calculated and deducted from the total and 2.5% of the final amount is given.

Example:

For example, you have 100 grams of gold, 5 lakhs in cash, lend someone PKR 1 lakh, and owe someone else PKR 50,000. You will calculate Zakat as follows:

  • 1 gram of 22 carat gold = Rs.  9,869.51/
  • 100 grams of 22 carat gold = Rs. 9,869,510/
  • Cash = Rs. 500,000/
  • Loans to others = Rs. 100,000/
  • Total Assets = Rs. 10,469,510/
  • Zakat = Total Assets – Liabilities
  • 10,469,510 – 50,000 (the loan amount you owe) = 10,419,510
  • 10,419,510 is the monetary value of the total asset that you have. Now the Zakat due is 2.5% of this amount and it will be 260,487.75 rupees.

Who is eligible for zakat

Individuals who own 3 ounces or 85.04 grams of gold or more are eligible to pay Zakat. Only assets that have been in your possession for at least one lunar year should be calculated for Zakat.
