    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1083/840/H=9/1434) First calculate the sale price of business items if you have, likewise if you have jewels evaluate it; then add them up in the total amount you own along with debts that you have given to others, then if you owe debt to someone deduct the amount from the total, and thereafter calculate zakah (2.5%) of the total in hand.
