Zakat and Charity in Islam
In this section, we have collected books on Zakah and other forms of charity.
Among the four great Imams and other scholars, there is a slight difference of opinion on some matters related to Zakah (e.g. Gold Jewelry etc.) based on their interpretation of Quran and Sunnah. This interpretation is governed by the 'Usool' (principles) of fiqh (jurisprudence) they follow in their interpretation. We should therefore respect various opinions if they are based the book and the sunnah.
Following is a brief summary of difference of opinion among scholars on the matter of Zakah on Jewelry and reasons for this:
