Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam
Question: Assalam ‘aleykum,
1) Which nisab should I use for my Zakat? On (e-nisab.com) there are 3 nisab values: Gold, Silver, and Hanafi. Can I follow the zakatable minimum of gold?
2) I haven’t paid attention to nisab and how much wealth I possessed for the past few years. How should I go about calculating how much I owe in Zakat?
Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
(1) Yes, you can follow the zakatable minimum (nisab) of gold.
(2) You should make a reasonable judgement and then act accordingly.
