Giving Zakat on Cash From His Salary

 
Question:

Salaam ‘Alaykum.I have cash savings that reaches the nisaab (minimum amount that makes zakaah obligatory). My question is, do I need to pay the zakaah (2.5%) by using the cash from the savings or can I pay the zakaah with my spending cash or my monthly wages that I receive?Jazaakum-Allaah Khayran.

Answer:

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and Messenger.

There is nothing wrong in giving Zakat on these cash savings from other money, whether your salary or something else.

Since you write to us in Arabic sometimes, then we refer you to Fatwa http://www.islamweb.net/fatwa/index.php?page=showfatwa&Option=FatwaId&Id=27006 in the Arabic section on the recipients of Zakat.

Also, for more benefit, you may refer to Fataawa 92458, 93584, and 159867 in our English Site.

Allah knows best.
