السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
The women of Saudi ‘Arabia are known for toting some of the world’s finest Gold & Silver jewelry. People come from all over to purchase it. There are many streets and districts with nothing but Gold for sale. Generally the people are “spoiled,” - even some of the beggars and maids have arms full of Gold, Tabaarakallaah.
I’d like to share the following excerpts with my sisters in Islaam, as there are some who believe that the Muslimah must pay Zakaah on her everyday jewelry. In Shaa Allaah you’ll benefit from this info.
Women are allowed to wear Gold and Silver in whatever way they are accustomed to.
Allaah has permitted adornment to them absolutely. Muslim scholars have unanimously agreed.
No Zakaah is to be given from Gold or Silver jewelry of women if used for ornaments or lending.
Using Gold for adornment is not an act of investment, but a lawful act that resembles wearing a suit, having servants and possessing houses for dwelling.
If the jewelry is set to be used for the purposes of renting, spending, (in case of need), possessing, saving, or is meant for any purposes other than those of using and lending, then it is subject to the original ruling of giving Zakaah and Zakaah is to be observed.
