Before we proceed on Zakat on Wealth, it is important to know what are the conditions of Zakat. They are:

  1. Muslim
  2. Full possession/ownership of wealth
  3. Nisab is reached. (Nisab is the market value of 86 gram of gold.)
  4. Haul is reached. (Haul is possession of assets/wealth for 1 Hijri year or 355 days.)
