Zakaat in Ramadaan

Zakaat in Ramadaan

Respected Aalim
اسلام عليكم

Please clarify the following:

If one usually pays zakaat in muharram, and now wants to start paying it in ramadaan, how should one calculate it?
Do we calculate zakaat based on our wealth now and discharge that, and at the end of the financial year – the next muharram – calculate it again and pay the balance if there is any?

Jazakallah kheir

Answer

Assalaamu alaykum
You may estimate your Zakaat now and pay it in advance. Once Muharram comes, one will do a proper calculation, and pay the difference, if any.
And Allah Ta'ala knows best
