dear Mufti Saheb hope Mufti Saheb is well and in good health …I have a question pertainining to zakaat. Recently my wife and I calculated our zakaat. As the time came to pay our zakaat I withdrew the amount of money I needed to pay my zakaat and also withdrew a seperate amount of money which I then gave to my wife as a gift…would she have to calculate and add this amount to her previously calculated amount of zakaat? And can she use this amount that I gave her as a gift to pay her zakaat? (Please note that at the time when she calculated her zakaat I had no intention of giving this gift to her neither was it in her possession, and as soon as I gave it to her she said I should use it as the payment of her zakaat…please advise if this was okay? And if it was the correct way of calculating the zakaat, my wife did not add the gift amount to her final total.)

On the day of calculating you had one amount and your wife another amount to give out.
Now the gift given by you will not effect her assets or amount to be given out.
She can use from your gift amount to dispense of her Zakaat.
