13:56 Nazeer Farooqui Dear Brother in Islam, Assalam Alaikum Wa Rehmatullahi Wa Barkatahu, Hope your are fine by the grace and mercy of Almighty Allah. I have few questions to ask you in regards to Zakat. We live in a joint family. Parents, Me and my wife, my brother and his wife and my unmarried sister. Me and my brother are the earners of our family. Whatever we earn we give it to my parents and they run the house by all means and give us pocket money which is hardly sufficient for the whole month and we cannot save anything from the pocket money. Now I have the following questions. 1. My father says that he is responsible for zakat on our behalf as well as he is managing the house affairs. Is he right or are we responsible in paying zakat on ourselves and our wife's behalf? 2. My father says that no Zakat is liable on my sister as she is UNMARRIED? Is he right or does he also have to pay Zakat on my sister's behalf? What are the rulings on Zakat on unmarried daughters or sisters? 3. My mother owes me some money and I also owe my wife some money. How do we consider these two factors in the calculation of Zakat? My mother might take 2 - 3 years to pay me back insha Allah. 4. I owe my wife Meher as well. How do we consider this in our calculation of Zakat? Kindly give your esteemed answers in the light of Quran and Sunnah along with references. Jazak Allah khair.
