Unjust Zakah Rates

I fail to understand why the Zakat ratio is 5% for them who invest and include services while Zakat for those who invest or give services is 10%. I understand the professionals who are salaried persons earn much lesser than the businessmen. According to this theory Zakat obligation on businessmen is half of that for professionals who are earning much lesser than the businessmen.

How To Calculate Zakat On Salary

I would like to know the principal of calculating Zakat on salary. I understand Mr Ghamidi is alone in his understanding that 10% of salary is to be given away in Zakah. Am I correct or any any other scholar/s support/s this? If we say that salary only involves services and no capital, but at the same time we have already spent capital to get good education to get the job and to learn the skills. What about this capital? I am an IT professional. I have to advance my skills all the time through learning new technology. Many time I am paying to acquire advanced skills. What do you say about this? How to calculate Zakat: If i have to pay 10% Zakat, how I will calculate the Zakat? How to calculate NISAB on salary? For example if I am taking salary 10000 Dhs. Basic = 4000 House Rent = 5000 Traveling = 1000. How I will calculate it? If 10% then its mean I have to give 1000 Dhs from 10,000 Dhs. My Question is if i am living with my family my minimum expenditure will be as follow: House rent = 5000 Dhs Grocery = 2500 Dhs Schooling = 1500 Dhs Traveling = 1000 Dhs. I still need some money around 1000 Dhs to accommodating bills and for that either I will be taking loan or cutting my expanses from above. How I will be able to manage 1000 Dhs for Zakat in this case. Even beside this I have family (My father, Mother, and younger sister) to send some money for their monthly expanses. Just I want to know how will apply 10% rule here, because 10,000 Dhs mean 2,30,000 PAK Rs. I think this amount is enough to declare me Sahib-e-Nisaab. Please clarify.

زکوٰۃ کے مصارف (غامدی صاحب کی رائے )۔

چند سوالات سے متعلق رہنمائی مطلوب ہے۔

١۔ زکوٰۃ کے مصارف کے وضاحت کیجیے اور اس معاملے میں غامدی صاحب کی رائے کا باقی علماء کی آراء سے جو اختلاف ہے اسے بھی واضح کیجیے۔

٢۔ غامدی صاحب نے میزان میں لکھا ہے کہ حکومت ایک چیز کے لیے زکوٰۃ کا الگ نصاب بھی مقرر کر سکتی ہے اور ایک چیز کو زکوٰۃ سے مثتثنیٰ بھی کر سکتی ہے۔ اس کی وضاحت کریں۔ مزید یہ جاننا چاہتا ہوں کہ زکوٰۃ اللہ تعالیٰ کا حق ہے تو پھر اس کو حکومت کیسے معاف کر سکتی ہے؟

٣۔ میرے ایک دوست نے بتایا کہ غامدی صاحب حکومت کے ٹیکس کو ناجائز قرار دیتے ہیں لیکن اگر حکومت زکوٰۃ کا نصاب خود متعین کر سکتی ہے تو پھر حکومت صاحب نصاب سے ١٠٠ روپے میں ٥٠ روپے زکوٰۃ بھی لے سکتی ہے، اور ٹیکس پر اعتراض غریب کی حد تک رہتا ہے کہ اس سے نہ لیا جائے اور باقی لوگوںسے لیا جائے۔

برائے مہربانی تفصیلی وضاحت فرمائیے۔

Zakat on rent or value?

Dear Sir,

In order to supplement my pension I recently invested in two commercial properties to rent. One of these will be transferred in my name in a few days time and its rent will start coming from Jun/Jul'18.For the second property I am scheduled to make final payment in Jul'18 and will be
transferred in my name on final payment. The rent will not come in before Jan/Feb next year. So far I have only made partial payment for it. I calculate my Zakat on 1st of Ramazan every year. As this date is just around the corner I would like to know what is my obligation for payment of Zakat in the above circumstances, particularly : 

- Is Zakat payable on the amount paid for purchase of these properties?

- Is Zakat payable on the rent too which I hope to get in the Jun/Jul?

- Subsequently, will Zakat be payable both on rental income and the value of properties(actual payment made and/or value of properties at that time)?

Thanks.
