UPDATED!: Current NISAB of 2018-2019

Posted on: May 21, 2018

As we promised, the new nisab as usual is presented during the Holy month of Ramadan on this site. I am happy to present to you the our annual Nisab for nigeria in Naira.

The new minimum amount of money legible for zakat (NISAB) has been calculated and published. The period of this new Nisab is from Ramadan 1439AH (2018) to next Ramadan 1440AH (2019).

A part from the NISAB, the amount also includes the minimum Sadaq (Rub’u Dinar) and the compensation for accidental murder (Diyyah). This year the amount is as follows:

NISAB:   N 1, 075,066.00,

RUB’U DINAR: N 13, 438.00 and

DIYYAH: N 53, 753, 300.00.

The amount of zakat to be given is always 2.5% or one over forty.

really appreciate your effort

thank you


salam, sulaiman, these figures are as a result of one year work and long calculations. i advise you go close to a teacher


Salam Ramadan kareem. Do we pay Zakat on insurance, pension that have not yet matured . Also the gold that we wear do also pay zakat on it? Also the land that we have not developed, please advice


Salam Sister, Zakat on any money has to reach one whole calender year. Must also reach the nisab (this year is N1,075,066). Must also be free of debt. No zakat on jewelry of gold or any item you wear, unless if they are meant for trade. Some people buy to wear and then sell for profit. No zakat for land meant for a personal house. However land meant for bussiness and profit zakat is paid on the value of the land of the value reaches the nisab or exceeds the nisab. Thank you


Salam Alaekum yah Ustaz Ibrahim, please I want to know the calculations for Nisab on salary earner (civil servant). and the condition to pay Zakat for these set of people.
Also, I will like you to expantiate on what you call blood Money?


Salam, There are different views concerning zakat of salary. Some Ulama said is compulsory while others say is not compulsory in their mazhab. Nevertheless, if you chose to pay zakat from salary its commendable but then; Your total income must reach or exceed the Nisab ( for example N1,075,066 this year in Nigeria). Also you must have settled your debt and family requirements for the year. Then you can calculate zakat from the surplus, its 2,5% from the total surplus. Then you give zakat each end of year or give out zakat monthly. Thank you
