Who has to pay Zakat?

Video: Who pays Zakat & what is the Nisab? - Imam Abid Khan

Zakat is required to be paid if a person is:

  • 1) Adult ( have reached the age of puberty)
  • 2) Muslim (Zakat is not paid by non-Muslims)
  • 3) Sane
  • 4) In complete ownership of the Nisab

There are differences of opinion as to whether pre-pubescent children, orphans or the psychologically inept (i.e. insane) should pay Zakat.

See Paying Zakat - Is it obligatory? for further information
