    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 860/860=M/1429)

     

    Yes, zakah shall be liable on the amount if it equal to nisab amount and a year had passed on it. If it is not equal to nisab, but she owns some more gold or silver and the total wealth is equal to nisab then also the Zakah shall be necessary.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
