I have a gold chain in my possession, but it’s lost somewhere at home. It is an old gold chain of my mothers, but it is all in pieces (broken). So I know I have it, I just don’t know where it is. My other jewelry is cosmetic, sterling sliver and gold plated. Is sterling silver and gold plated jewelry zakaatable? Also how would you advise I calculate the zakaat on that broken gold chain that I misplaced?
I had also forgotten about a kruger coin that my grandparents gave. That coin is to be shared equally among myself, my sister and my brother. So I had forgotten about that coin too.
I hadn’t realized that I had to pay zakaat because I had forgotten about this jewelry, and the coin and I had no savings (Only a student). Now I must pay zakaat, but can I pay for all the years that I should have paid but didn’t?
Also is it fine to deposit zakaat money to organisations like Islamic Relief that has zakaat accouts?
Is that permissible?
Please let me know,
