Zakaat payment on wife s jewellery


Assalaamu alaikum

I Have taken a loan. The loan amount is greater than my current savings and the gold jewellery my wife has. So do I need to pay zakat. Or my wife has to pay zakat.

Kindly pray for barakah in earnings and to clear my loan soon.


As-Salamu ‘Alaikum,

When you deduct your debt from wealth and if the reminder is still above the nisab threshold, zakat is payable, otherwise not.
