Can Zakat Only Be Paid in the Month of Ramadan, or Any Time of Year?

From Sunnipath

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, SunniPath Academy Teacher

Can Zakat only be paid in the month of Ramadan, or any time of the year?

In the Name of Allah, with blessings & peace on the Beloved of Allah, and his folk and all lovers of Allah

Walaikum assalam,

Zakat can be paid at any time, and should not be unduly delayed. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar] The virtue of paying one’s Zakat in Ramadan is in that charity and good deeds are multiplied in this month.

Wassalam,

Faraz Rabbani
