Zakat is an obligatory giving for Muslims. It needs to be paid once a year, on any wealth that you did not use in the year (i.e. savings, investments, etc).
The amount you have to pay in Zakat is calculated as 2.5% of your wealth above the “Nisaab” threshold – that’s the value of 595 grams of Silver. If your total wealth is less than the value of Nisaab, you do not have to pay Zakat.
