Growth and its Effect on Zakat

Auther : Dr. Muhammad Abd Al-Ghaffar Al-Shareef

For imposition of Zakat, our jurists stipulated actual or potential growth of means increase and multiplicity. The majority of scholars differentiate between two types of growth, using a specific term for each type.

1. (نَماء) /Nama/ (growth), which means that extra results are directly and naturally obtained from the source, such as milk and off springs of cattle; 2. (كَسْب) /kasb/ (earning), which means that sources are just tools by which, through human efforts and skills, results that are of different category, are obtainable, such as earnings of a slave or renting houses.

Growing properties include cattle, money, merchandise, crops and mining. All these are unanimously zakatable.

Some contemporary scholars tried to disprove this principle of growth through raising some suspicions about it in an attempt to widen the Zakat base.
