I had a savings account started many years ago and have never paid zakat on it due to lack of knowledge. Now I am taking all that money and paying the zakat out of it so i need to find out what the nisab level was in 2000.
Also what was the islamic date in July 2000?
I would appreciate any help.
Jazakallah khair

Asalaamu Alaikum Wr Wb, you can convert the currency to UK pounds. The 1st of July 2000 was the 28th of Rabi al Awwal 1421 AH.

Asalaamu Alaikum Wr Wb, it is easier to pay it from Ramadan to Ramadan but i have found a highly qualified scholar (Mufti) for you to contact regarding your issue on Zakat and he works for the Muslim charity Muslim hands and he is available for you to contact tomorrow (Thursday) at 10:30 onwards. He will be more than happy to answer any questions you have regarding the calculation of past and present Zakat.

Anyone from the UK can also call for scholarly advice on the issue of Zakaat on: 0115 911 7222

If you are calling from outside the UK please dial +44 115 911 7222, where + is your country's international direct dial (IDD) prefix.

You can also E mail any quesries to them by visiting this page: http://<br /> <br /> http://www.mu...mh/contact_us/

Inshallah your matter will be resolved. Please remember me in your dua's. Asalaamu Alaikum
