1. I want to give zakat directly to the recipient. What can I do and how the practice at the time of the Prophet himself?
Zakat must be fulfilled to Amil appointed by the government. This is in accordance with the requirements of Islam, because the position of Amil is clearly stated in the Koran and quoted in al-Hadith. People who give zakat directly to the recipients will make mistakes unconsciously, feared that the major mistake is when one gives charity to
only one group of asnaf only while in money and property of zakat, there are eight group of asnaf that require support and aid. According to al-Shafie in Fiqh al-Manhaji, let those who want to distribute their zakat, seeking three people from each of the asnaf of charity to be given their right. This is the practice at the time of the Prophet and his companions. They give zakat to appointed Amil, like the prophet appointed and sent Muadh bin Jabal to Yemen to Amil.
2. How to count nisab of partnership property?
Joint ownership of property or partnership lawÂ is same as individual property. If the joint ownership of property is nisab sufficient, then zakat should be pay from it, even if it is distributed, the ownership of each member's share of less than nisab. This law is the same for all types of property that should be pay for zakat.
3. My husband was on duty overseas, how if he wants to pay the zakat for his dependents, namely me and the kids? Does my husband need to pay abroad, where he was now, or do I have to represent my brother to pay a zakat on behalf of my husband?
The responsibility to pay the zakat for you and your children are subject to the husbands. However, the husband may delegate such payments through biological brother or anyone else who resides in your kariah.
4. Does someone who paid the income zakat still obliged to pay for the savings zakat eventhough the savings come from the same source?
Yes, as Zakat on savings is compulsary on the second year. However, even it is from the same source but it is different in haul calculation. After paid income zakat, if the excess income is saved and when nisab and haulÂ is sufficient, it is compulsary to pay savings zakat.
