|Zakah on mineral resources|
Zakah on minerals is not
paid on annual basis; it is promptly due on
any extracted and filtrated portion of
minerals so long as it reaches the Nisab
liable to the payment of Zakah.
The Nisab of minerals
liable to Zakah is estimated in accordance
with the value of the Nisab of gold, i.e. 85
grams, no matter whether the minerals are
extracted one at a time or in parts. In case
the work ceases because of emergency such as
repairing equipment or due to a strike on
the part of the workers, the extracted
minerals are to be added together in a way
to complete the minimum amount counted for
Zakah. However, in case the work ceases due
to the transfer of the activity or for
another reason, then resumed again this
interruption is to be considered in
calculating the minimum amount counted for
Zakah in a way that the new extracted
amounts of minerals will not be added to the
amounts extracted before the halt.
The term 'minerals'
refers to all minerals extracted from the
earth or the seabed. Zakah on pearls, coral,
fish, and amber is to be paid in the same
way as commercial commodities.
