Pearl of Wisdom

about the verse: It is We who have dispensed among them their livelihood, 'Allah, the Exalted, told us that employment is one of the means of people's livelihood. He, in His wisdom, diversified their aspirations, motivations, and other states. Thus, He made man's employment of one another one of the means of people's livelihood ... If every one of us was forced to build for himself, make his own furniture, and produce everything himself... the world's conditions would not be bearable and people would not be able to endure them, and would find them impossible. But he ensured its management by diversifying their aspirations so that everyone performs for others that which is Employment compatible with his own capacity, in order for some of them to be served by others and for their conditions to be sound.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Wasa'il al-Shi'a, v. 13, p. 244, no. 3

Subject: Nisab on Salaries
Question: How much is the nisab on Salary? It is same as gold that I just need to convert it? Let say my Salary per month is 12,000.00 Philippines currency. So, how much will be my nisab? Should I pay zakatul Maal for it?

Shukran and waiting for your answer.
Answer: Bismillah

Salaam alaikum. Inshallah all is well. According to the majority of Shia scholars, zakat doesn't apply to earnings unless it is in gold coins that are used as currency. There are only some who believe it applies to capital invested I business.
Keep me in your prayers.
