From when should the beginning of the year be considered?
It has already been described that a year should pass on the wealth for Zakaat to become compulsory. The beginning of the year is the date on which an individual becomes the absolute owner of 60 grams 755 milligrams of gold or 425 grams 285 milligrams of silver or its equivalent wealth. As per the research of the scholars of North India, the criterion of gold is 87 grams 480 milligrams and of silver is 612 grams 360 milligrams. When a year passes and the same date comes, then Zakaat becomes Compulsory.
