Calculating zakaat on gold, silver and cash


1. Suppose if I have 75 grams gold, 750 grams silver and some cash in hand and bank. Do I have to calculate separate zakaat of all items or calculate total zakaat.

2. If I have 85 grams gold it is zakaatable. But I have only 75 grams is this gold exempted from zakaat?


1. They will be calculated together.

2. If the 75 grams of gold is the only zakaatable wealth that you have and you have no other cash, silver, etc. then you will not have to pay zakaat on the gold.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
