‘have an 80 gram gold ‘

Q: Salaam ul aykum Imam, please respond to me asap. I have an 80 gram gold jewelry that my aunt bought me for $3,200. How do I pay zakat for it? Please reply.

Jazakullah khair sheikh

A: وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

If this is all that you have — no silver, cash, etc. then in such a case, you would not qualify to pay zakah. The qualifier for zakah requires a little more than 80 grams of gold.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.

Advice: However, from your side, you can give any amount of sadaqa. This would keep you in the practice of at least giving something to the poor. Sadaqah cools the wrath of Allah. This is a mere recommendation.
