Zakat - Are My Hajj Savings Zakatable?
  • Question:

    Is zakat payable on my savings for Hajj?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Yes, Zakāh is mandatory, once each lunar year on all wealth, assets and savings above and beyond one’s basic necessities.

    Savings for Ḥajj are also zakatable.

    And Allah knows best.
