f:879 -    How to calculate Zakaat if other metals are mixed with gold/silver?
Country : Gandhinagar, India,
Name : Muhammad Baseer
Question:     Mufti Sahab, there was a lengthy argument about the question as to whether Zakaat is Wajib on all gold or the weight of gold excluding the contamination/mixing of other metals etc. that is done while making of jewelry.  Please tell us what the correct ruling us.
............................................................................
Answer:     If there is any other metal mixed in the gold and silver jewelry, then it will be seen whether the contamination is more or whether it is less than the quantity of gold/silver in the jewelry.

If the contamination is less, it is not to be considered and Zakaat will be on the weight of the jewelry including the contamination.  If the contamination is more than the amount of gold, etc., then it will not be considered to be gold/silver. As given in Al Bahr Ur Raaiq, Vol. 2, Pg. No. 397/398.

And Allah Most High knows best.
