Zakat Calculation FAQ

Zakat is a big old subject with so many fiddly questions. In this FAQ (which we will add to as we go alone) we aim to cut through the noise and help you get the answer you need quickly.

We also have a carefully-crafted zakat calculator designed to quickly calculate your zakat – but in an accurate way. Check it out here.

(FYI, we do not charge any admin fee if you do pay zakat via IFG’s Calculator. Nothing. Zilch. Just a community service.)
