you can only pay zakat from your own money, you're not entitled to taking your wifes' money in Islam.

But of course I haven't quoted any evidence from the Quran/hadiths to back this up, so here's a video from someone who knows about this area of Islam instead who's discussing this, I hope it's useful :)

And here's a student of islam talking about who needs to give zakat:

And a student of islam talking about giving zakat on gold or jewellery:

Thank you brothers for your kind advice. However, I have no other income rather than my Scholarship for Study and I am in a little depth now. The all we have is my wife's gold and jewellery. Shell I borrow more money form someone else to pay the jakat? or what could be other possible solutions?
