A sister ask she has jewellery to the value of plus minus R 30000.00. She has no cash money. Is qurbani wajib on her
Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:
If a woman has gold or silver jewellery and the gold/silver content reaches the Nisaab of Zakaah (not diamonds and other stones), then she will have met the condition of being wealthy, even if she does not have cash in hand, and as such she will have to slaughter.
Explaining the condition of being wealthy Imaam Ibn `Aabideen Rahimahullaah says in Raddul Muhtaar: “It (the condition) is that he owns two hundred Dirhams or goods which are equal to it (in price), excluding his house, his clothing or items that he is in need of in order to slaughter the sacrificial animal.” [i]
And Allaah knows best.
