Question

Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Is Zakat compulsory on gold that is kept for adornment? هل تجب الزكاة في الذهب المعدِّ للزينة؟

Answer

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions. Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.   As to what follows: In response to your question, we say: The majority of the scholars are of the opinion that Zakat is not due on gold which is worn (as jewellery). ‘Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said, “There is Zakat on jewellery”  (at-Tirmithi [636]).
