Is a married woman having no personal revenue has to pay Zakaat on the jewels her husband has given her as Mahr? If she has no cash available, must she sell part of the jewels to pay Zaqaat?

Asalamu Alaikum

The wife is the legal owner of the Mahr which is given to her by the husband. Therefore if she is given jewellery then she is holding assets which are legal tender, having monetary value. Therefore Zakat will be eligible on this jewellery if its value in currency is equivalent to the value of 612.5 grams of silver or equivalent to the value of 87.5 grams of gold.

In most cases if the wife is not working the zakat is given on the combined wealth of the married couple which includes the mahr.

also see the Calculating your Zakat post.


Say: “Are those equal who know and those who do not know?
It is only men of understanding who will remember.” (S 39:9)
