The time and Nisaab of Zakaat for livestock

THE TIME AND NISAAB OF ZAKAAT FOR LIVESTOCK

  1. The owner must have possession of animals for one lunar year before Zakaat becomes Fardh.
  2. The Nisaab for Saa’imah animals is governed by the number of animals in one’s ownership and not by the monetary value of each animal. (refer to tables in the further posts for detail).
