AddThis Social Bookmark Button




The amount of cash held, whether in a bank or personally on hand, at the end of the relevant Zakat year will always be subject to Zakat. Moneys lent and advanced are, for Zakat purposes, treated as cash and Zakat must be paid on such loans each year.

The Nisab for cash is equivalent to the value of gold or silver (whichever is less). At present Nisab of silver is less, so cash may be calculated according to silver. All the values of Zakat-able assets for the sake of calculation are converted into cash, and based on the fact that nisab is calculated according to the nisab of silver, which, on August 15, 2012, was $548.80  (See Section 12.1).
