Question

Slamalaykoum, I live in Belgium with my wife
and 2 childeren concerning Zakat Elmal what
would be the amount in EURO for elnesaab?
and is the 2.5% should be applied seprately
on the money of my wife and 2 childeren in
other words shall i look to the money of my
wife sepratley then see if it exceeds elnesaab
if yes then we pay from it 2.5% , and look
for the money of my daughter sepratley then
see if it exceeds elnesaab if yes then i pay
from it 2.5% also and do the same for my
son's money, bearing in mind that i save the
money for my childeren or shall i add all the
money togather for myself and my wife and
my childeren and see if it exceeds elnesaab
and pay from it 2.5%? Wa gazakoum allah
khayran Mostafa

Fatwa:
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
is His slave and Messenger.

Nisaab(i.e. the minimum amount liable for
Zakat) of cash money, be it Euro or Dollar or
other currency, is the equivalent of 85 grams
of gold. Therefore, whoever possesses the
equivalent of this amount and a whole lunar
year elapses on it is obliged to pay Zakat on
it, which is 2.5%.

Every person who possesses Nisaaband a
whole lunar year elapses on it is obliged to
pay Zakat from his own money. For instance,
if the money of the wife reaches Nisaaband a
whole lunar year elapses on it, then Zakat
should be paid on it immediately and it is
not permissible to delay it until a whole
lunar year elapses on the money of her
husband or son. Every person should pay
Zakat separately if it reaches Nisaab.
It should be noted that it is the wife who
should undertake the payment of her own
money or appoint you to do that for her,
and the same thing applies to your
pubescent children. As regards the children
who are not yet pubescent, you should pay
Zakat on their behalf from their own money.
Every person who owns Nisaaband a whole
lunar year elapses on it, is obliged to pay
Zakat but one is not obliged to pay Zakat if
he does not own Nisaabeven if when it is
added to the money of others it reaches or
exceeds Nisaab.

To conclude, we thank you for being keen on
paying Zakat and asking about this, and we
ask Allah to make you steadfast on His
Guidance and bless your money and
family.

Allah Knows best.
