Zakat Calculator

Our handy zakat calculator will guide you step-by-step in working out the amount of zakat you may owe. Paying this zakat through Human Appeal not only allows you to fulfil this sacred obligation, but will also help some of the world's poorest people.

What you need before you begin

To calculate your zakat you'll need to have to hand information such as how much money you have in the bank or how much your jewellery is worth.

Complete the simple form below to quickly calculate your zakat payment

Assets

Assets include money held in the bank, cash, property, jewellery or anything else of value. If any of the fields do not apply you can leave them blank.

£

Include all your bank accounts and any money at home or in hand. Any interest you have received at the bank is haram and must not be included.

£

Most scholars are of the opinion that zakat should be paid on all gold and silver jewellery, whether it is worn or not.

£

Any property other than your home must be included for zakat purposes. If you are in the business of buying and then selling properties when they appreciate in value, zakat is due on the current resale value of these properties. However, If you are in the business of letting properties then zakat is due on savings made from this rental income only.

£

Zakat must be paid on the amount of your pension that you have contributed to in the last year but not on the portion paid by your employer.

£

If you don’t intend to sell the shares, then zakat is due on dividends you earn. However, if you are buying and selling shares, zakat is due on their current market value.

£
£

Add the total value of cash in tills and at the bank + stock for sale (current sale value) + raw materials (value at cost).

If you are owed any debts, and you believe the debt can be recovered at any time include its value here. If instead there is doubt about if you will recover the debt, do not include it here, but instead include it in the year you actually receive it, and pay zakat for all previous years that the debt was outstanding. If you have already received some of the debt, then zakat is due on this received amount.

Liabilities

Liabilities represent money that is owed to others.

£

Any unpaid rent, house payments, utility bills or money that you owe etc., that are due or overdue should be entered here.

£

Any unpaid rent, property payments, invoices, staff salaries or money that you owe etc., that are due or overdue should be entered here.
