  1. Assalaamu alaykum. Jazakumullahu khayran. Question…giving zakat to poor relatives…I thought you cannot give to people whom you are financially responsible for.

  2. Salamualaikum,
    I have read some other thoughts on zakat that are interesting,
    that it should be submitted to an authorised collector,
    paid in gold or silver rather than fulus (or paper money) although this is an opinion
    and distributed locally

    Suggesting that local mosques should collect and distribute to the local poor, with only sadaqa being sent abroad.


  3. Thanks for the very very nice information about tha zakat. I just recently married and Ramadan are now coming. This information is so helpful to me to give my and my wife’s zakat.

  4. Can I pay zakat to my in laws , they have their own flat and earning also, but they are in bad need of money . Is it permissible to pay them zakat

  5. Dear Sir,

    We are a team of students form ESSEC Business School in France, and we are currently making some studies about Islamic business.
    I read a few of your articles and found them very interesting !

    Would you mind taking 1 minute of your time providing us with 2-3 ideas / phrases about that specific question :
    “Ramadan business: are there new forms, in particular in Dubaï and Malaysia?”

    I would warmly appreciate your help on that and shall of course quote my source!

  6. How is nisab calculated, is it family wise or individually. Can the nisab be calculated for husband & wife jointly?

  7. As Salam alaykum. Jazak Allah Khairan for clearing the myths.

    I want to ask about paying Zakat only once a year. In the case of a person that was supposed to pay zakat but did not for two consecutive years.

    He then repented and wants to pay his accrued zakat of the past years. Is it permissible for such person to pay zakat for the past years or that’s a bygone?
