    Title: Zakat after liabilities

    Question: I have 70000 cash in bank, but within this month (in 1 week time) I need to pay 50000 to the bank for my liabilities. Do I have to pay zakah on 70000 or (70000-50000 = 20000). Please clarify.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1320/902/L=10/1435) In the above mentioned case, zakah shall be wajib only on 20000 rupees provided you possess other wealth which makes you sahib nisab and one year has passed over it.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
