Can I pay my Zakat monthly?
Once Zakat becomes due then the scholars are of the opinion that it must be paid without delaying it unless there is a valid reason to do so.
If one is unable to pay the Zakat in one payment then he/she may be able to pay in instalments as long as the total amount due is paid. Scholars are of the view that Zakat may be paid monthly, as long it is done in advance of the due date.
Managing Zakat payments
In order to pay your Zakat annually when it is due, you can estimate how much Zakat you will be expected to pay and ensure you save throughout the year. Scholars accept that this is possible.
You should always keep in mind when either paying in monthly instalments or saving monthly amounts, the intention that it is for your Zakat.
