Zakaat on salary

Question ID: 26291

Asallamualaykum dearest Mufti.

Hope you are well and that ALLAH SWT shower His Mercy and Blesings upon you and your family.

I have a question regarding Zakaat. I do not have any savings in my bank account, nor do I possess any jewellery or assets or properties, infact I just recieve a salary and go on from there, I do have a bank loan that I am busy paying off, do I need to pay Zakaat every year?
I normally take out Zakaat every year on my salary that I recieve just to be on the safe side, please tell me if Zakaat is due upon me?

If at the time of calculating Zakaat you have the cash equal to or more than the Zakaat Nisaab of that year then pay 2.5% as Zakaat. Otherwise Zakaat is not Fardh upon you.
