Zakat is a pillar of Islam and is obligatory on those who meet the minimum threshold. This threshold is known as the Nisaab. Nisaab is 3 ounces or 87.48 grams of gold, or 612.36 grams of silver. So, if you have wealth in the form of savings/cash/jewellery (after living costs and expenses) which is worth more than the value of Nisaab, Zakat becomes obligatory on you. Zakat is calculated at 2.5% of Nisaab. Towards the end of this page, you can find out if you really have to pay Zakat or not using the tools provided.
