Ask The Imam Question and Answer

741 My question is that if I have already given Zakaat on my one year's income and in the next year I have some part of my previous year's income left. Do I have to pay Zakaat on this in my current year's income for Zakaat or not?
Zakaat is based on wealth (total savings, above your personal needs) and not on income. An amount must remain with you for a complete Islamic year before it become eligible for Zakaat. If the funds or assets stay with you for longer then one period (year) then you will pay Zakaat on that saving every year.
