(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Every believer, regardless of whether man, woman, or child, who has excess wealth (over the ‘nisaab which is approximately 7.5 tolas (85grams) of gold or approximately US$2,550.00) of their own, is liable to pay a 2.5% annual Zakat of their Nett excess wealth in Shariah.
Your statement: let’s say that all were gifted by her parents and sumone from family when they were young..?
Gifts are considered part of ones wealth, and if the gifts have been in their possession for a period of one full year, then the zakah dues will be liable upon them.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
