Zakatable Year

Q. Is Zakah calculated on the solar year or lunar year?

The Zakah year is based on the Hijri (lunar) calendar and not on the Gregorian (solar) calendar. Zakah should be calculated accordingly.
Q. When does a person’s Zakatable year commence?

A. The very first day that one possesses wealth equivalent to the value of Nisab heralds the commencement of his/her Zakatable year.

And Allah Knows Best
