Video: Zakat on gold, silver & jewellery - Imam Abid Khan
Do I need to pay Zakat on my gold and silver?
It is worth noting that in the South Asian subcontinent (i.e. India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal), grams may not be used to measure silver and gold. Instead one of 3 possible units of measurement may be used; these are either: Tolas, Boris or Voris.
One Tola or Bori or Vori is equivalent to 11.66 grams.
We know that the Nisab threshold for gold is 87.48 grams, so this is be equivalent to 7.2 Tolas, Voris or Bhoris.
