Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

 

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


The amount owed to the bank and creditors for this year will be considered a liability. This will be subtracted from the Zakaatable assets and Zakaat will be paid on the remaining assets. (Zakaatable).
