If you cannot pay zakat for gold due to no income then you have to sell some of the gold. (Which won't be a lot).

I too have no income, I went to a jewellery shop worked out how much my gold is worth, And how much zakat I need to pay. It only came around ($103). And I sold a ring for that.

Are you married? You must have some sort of income to support yourself. Can't you manage to pay zakat with a part of that money?

Asalaamualaykum:

Firstly - The gold you have in possession will have to tally to the amount that in Cash will above the Nisab Value of your locality.

If that gold is worth below the Nisab value - you will be exempt from Zakaat

If the gold is above the Nisab value you would have Trade/Sell it for Cash.

I Highly suggest to speak to a local scholar regarding your issue because paying Zakaat can be a complex matter. You must understand that speaking to local scholar would mean you divulging your entire financial status with truth.
