Zakat on Gold

Zakat is a pillar of Islam whereby we all need to pay 2.5% of our total savings and wealth.

Your compulsory Zakat payment includes Zakat on Gold.

Therefore, the Zakat you need to pay on the Gold you own is 2.5% of its value.


Nisab on Gold

If you don’t own much gold, you may not need to pay Zakat on gold.

The Nisab is the minimum amount of wealth you need to have before you must start paying Zakat. The Nisab on gold is 87.48 grams (or 3 ounces) – so if you own less than that, you may not need to pay Zakat on gold.
