Paying zakat on savings

Submitted by Anonymous on Thu, 01/09/2020 - 02:15

Salam, I wanted to ask a question regarding paying zakat on money I have saved for over a year. If I am planning to spend the money saved within the next month, do I still pay zakat on it since I have had the money for a full year? Your advice is appreciated.

1) I have not been able to fast for the past 5 years. I have never paid the Fidya before. I have heard some years ago that one need to pay it, but I have not paid anything until today. My question is, what is the ruling for me? Can I pay the Fidya altogether for the past years now? And how do I know the amount I should pay (per fast). I live in Sweden.

Zakat On Shares

I have taken a 3 year interest free employment loan of 80,000 riyals from my company (employer) on 1st January 2016. The loan is repayable over a period of three years and hence each month a monthly installment of 2,222 riyals is deducted from my salary.

I have invested the loan in the public company shares as a long-term investment to earn dividends and hence bought 80,000 shares (1 riyal each) in a company doing halal business. I will be paying zakat on 31 December 2016.
