How should a house wife pay Zakāt on her jewellery if she has no source of income of her own ?

Q:  How would a wife pay her Zakāt if she has Gold/Silver equal to or above the minimum level but no source of income of her own to pay the Zakāt from? As she does not work and has her living and daily costs paid by her husband! Would she have to sell some of her jewellery to cover the costs?


الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما ومنه الصدق والصواب


A:   She has the option of selling some of her jewellery, paying Zakāt in kind, such as clothes, etc, or she may ask her husband to kindly pay on her behalf.
