Chapter 1


623. Ibn 'Abbas radiyallahu anhu: narrated that when the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa sent Mu'adh ibn Jabal to Yemen (as governor), he said to him: "You are going to a people who are People of the Scripture. Invite them to testify that no one has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Messenger. If they obey you in this, then teach them that Allah, the Glorious One, has enjoined five prayers upon them in every day and night (in twenty-four hours), and if they obey you in this, then tell them that Allah has made it obligatory for them to pay Zakah upon their assets and it is to be taken for them form the wealthy among them and given to the poor among them." Related by Bukhari.

624. Anas radiyallahu anhu: narrated that Abu Bakr As-Siddiq radiyallahu anhu: wrote him this letter, “This is the obligatory Zakah, which the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa made obligatory for every Muslim, and which Allah, the almighty had commanded him to observe. ‘For each twenty-four camels, or less, their Zakah is to be they paid as sheep; for every five camels, their Zakah is one sheep. When the amount of camels is between twenty-five to thirty-five, the due Zakah is one she camel ‘bint makhad’ (a camel which is one year old and just starting the second year) or a male camel ‘ibn labun’ (a young male camel which is two years old and already starting the third year). However, when the amount of camels reaches thirty-six, the due Zakah is a young she camel ‘bint labun’ (a young female camel, which is two years old and already starting the third year). When they reach forty-six to sixty camels, their due Zakah is a she camel ‘hiqqah’ (which is three years old and starting the fourth). When they reach sixty-one to seventy-five, one ‘Jaz’ah’ (a four year old camel already starting its fifth year). When their number is between seventy-six to ninety camels, their due Zakah is two young she camels ‘bint labun’. When they are in the range between ninety-one to hundred and twenty camels, the Zakah is two young she camels ‘hiqqah’. If they are over one hundred twenty camels, on every forty camels, one ‘bint labun’ is due. And for every fifty camels (over one hundred and twenty) a young she camel ‘hiqqah’ is due. And anyone, who has got only four camels, does not have to pay unless he (the owner of the camels) wants to give something voluntarily.

Regarding the Zakah of grazing sheep, if they are between forty and one hundred and twenty, one sheep is due as a Zakah. If they are between 120 and 200, two sheep are due. If they are between 200 and 300 hundred, three sheep are due. If they exceed three hundred sheep, then one sheep is doing for every extra hundred grazing heads. If the grazing sheep are less than forty, (even if they are 39) then no Zakah is due on them, unless he (the owner of the camels) wants to give something voluntarily.

One should not combine (i.e. gather young animals together) or separate them for fear of being Zakah. {188} When there is a mixture of cattle shared between two partners, and Zakah is paid directly between them, then they have to calculate it equally among them (depending on the share of each). Neither an old or a defective animal mocking mail goat (a ram used for breeding) may be taken as Zakah, unless the Zakah collector wishes {189} to do so.

Concerning silver, the Zakah paid is a quarter of a tenth for each 200 Dirhams. If the amount of silver is less than 200 Dirhams (even if it is 190) then no Zakah is to be paid for it, unless the owner wishes to do so.

If the number of camels reaches the number one which a jaz’ah (a four year old camel already starting its fifth year) is due as Zakah, but he only has a ‘hiqqah’ (a she camel which is three years old and starting the fourth), it should be accepted from him alone with two sheep if they were available (to compensate for the difference) or twenty Dirhams. If on the other hand he has to offer a ‘hiqqah’ as Zakah, but he only has a jaz’ah, it is accepted from him, and the Zakah collector will then pay him the difference, which some is twenty Dirhams or two female sheep.’ Related by Al-Bukhari.

{188}- One way of doing this is when three people, each of them has 14 sheep (i.e. one sheep is due on each). So, when the Zakah collector comes, they put them together, which comes to 120 sheep, and then due Zakah is only one sheep. Or if two partners have 201 sheep , and Then the due Zakah Is only one sheep. Or if two partners to 201 sheet, which means that three sheep are due, then they divide them between them, for each to give only one sheep.

{189}-The Zakah collector should not take this last type, (the breeding ram) as this will harm the owner, but he make take any one of these three if he has no other choice, as the old and defective animal is not to be taken as Zakah anyway. The same Arabic word used in the Hadith could be read as ‘al-Mussaddiq’, which is the owner or the one who pays Zakah. In case the meaning would be ‘the male goat’ may not be taken unless the owner permits it to be taken as Zakah, as it is from best animals.

625. Mu’adh bin Jabal radiyallahu anhu: narrated, ‘When the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa sent him to Yemen he commanded him to take a ‘tabi’ (young bull) or ‘tabi’ah’ (young cow, which is one year old), as Zakah for every 30 cows. And for every forty and cows, a musinnah (two year old cow) is due. Every non-Muslim who attained the age of puberty should pay one Dinar or the equivalent from the Mu’afiri clothes (made in a town in Yemen called Ma’afir). {190} Related by the five Imams and the wording is from Ahmad.

{190} This is paid by the people of the Scripture (Christians and Jews) as Jizyah or tax, as they are under the protection of a Muslim government.

Abu Dawud also has the narration, “Their Zakah should only be collected in their dwellings.” {191}

No camel is to be separated from the rest of the camels (i.e. the jointly owned livestock as mentioned above). Whoever gives it willingly, seeking his reward from Allah, will be rewarded. (However) if someone refrains from paying it, it will be taken from him (by force) along with part of his property (as punishment), for it is a right of Allah. None of it is lawful for the family of Muhammad Sallalahu aleihi wa .” Related by Ahmad, An-Nasa’i, Abu Dawud and Al-Hakim rendered it Sahih.
divider
629. ‘Ali radiyallahu anhu: narrated that the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa: said, “When you possess two hundred Dirhams at the end of the year (if you still have all of them), five Dirhams are levied on them as Zakah. There is nothing upon you (to be paid) in gold, until it reaches (the value of) twenty Dinars. When you possess twenty Dinars, at the end of the year, then there is half a Dinar levied on it (as Zakah). Any additional amount will be calculated in the same manner. No Zakah is to be paid on monetary holdings, until they have been owned for one year. Related by Abu Dawud, who rendered it Hasan.
divider
630. Ibn ‘Umar radiyallahu anhu: narrated, ‘Whoever earns any money, he is not liable to pay Zakah, until the period of a year has passed (while still possessing the same amount of money).’ Related by At-Tirmidhi.

640. Sahl bin Abi Hathmah radiyallahu anhu: narrated, 'We were commanded by the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa , “Whenever you assess the amount of something, estimate the [Zakah] and ignore one-third.
