Why is there no zakaat or khums on gold jewellery when it is actually like a savings for most people which can be converted into money? Especially in the sub continent that's a way of savings. While in the Sunni school of thought, they have scary stories of what will happen to those ladies who don’t pay zakaat on the gold jewellery they have. Did I miss something?
I have come across this opinion that zakaat is on money also other than gold/silver coins like in the following lecture by Syed Jawad Naqvi as per 12 minutes on He mentions zakaat was later introduced on horses and rice also after the Prophets (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) time as that was what the people started possessing. He was also mentioning how is it that a rich factory owner don’t have to pay zakaat but a poor farmer as to pay zakaat on his few animals. while studying about zakaat, it seems that main guide is that the zakaat is on gold or silver coins that are used as currency but now there are views that it's on note currency also n some say it's precautionary caution to give on those as well. Really confused about the matter of zakaat now. Thoughts?
