A wife has gold, who has to pay her zakah?

Home / Pillars of Islam / A wife has gold, who has to pay her zakah?

Question:

If a girl has gold given to her by her husband and dad, shall her husband give zakah on it or shall she sell off the gold and pay her zakah herself?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Since she owns the gold then she is responsible to pay the zakah for it. So if she doesn’t own the zakah amount she can sell part of it to pay the zakah. Or maybe her husband might be willing to give her the money as a gift from him to pay the zakah.
