Zakat Expert

Q: Is Zakat due on items composed of mixed metals with gold and silver?

A: According to the more accurate view among contemporary Hanafi jurists, if a person has personal items made from a mixture of metals, then the gold/silver is liable to Zakat if the gold/silver content can be distinguished and ascertained. Some scholars of the opinion that mixed metals are only liable to Zakat if half or more of the metal is gold or silver.

And Allah knows best!
