Question ID: 33924


My son normally pays zakat in Rajab,we thought we did already pay his zakat,but when we checked it was last year we made hisaab for zakat.We only realized this a few days ago.How do we now work out the zakat,and which date do we use,as we don’t know how much cash he had in Rajab.Its more cash and money in the bank.Please advise what should we do ?Also we have no money now to pay his zakat,can we pay the moment we have the cash?He is a student.

If he is ‘Baaligh’ then he must be taught how to calculate and distribute the Zakaat.
If he is not ‘Baaligh’ he does not have to pay Zakaat.
Make/calculate an extra amount and give out his Zakaat if liable.
As and when.
You get money – the Zakaat – do not leave money within the bank – pay out the Zakaat.
