SLMZ, My parents are deceased and being the only child i inherited their house.Its 1 year later and still being transferred to my name. My husband and i have our own house on which we still owe a substantial amount(another 19 yrs to go on the bond). We also have other debt.Total debt including bond is approx R280 000.00.We have no savings.I have jewellery, valued approx. R10 000.00. With cost of living being so high, we are just barely able to meet our monthly expenses, however we are not destitute. I am not working, only my husband and we have 2 children. We also own 1 car that is 11 years old and paid up. Please help me calculate my zakaat portion as i am worried that i will be wrong. I must also add that i regularly give sadaqah as well as money as zakaat during the year. Total this islamic year for zakaat approx R400.00. Jazakallahukhair.

Your Bond liabilities is instalment x12 not R280,000,00 . Pay Zakaat on the Jewellery. Substract R400,00 if that was given as Zakaat. Looks like your husband does not have to pay Zakaat
