Assalaamu alaikum sir,
My question is that I do some charity every month, can I include this amount as a Zakat at the end of the year? For example, if I do charity of 50,000 in a year and my Zakat is also 50,000, so does that mean I have already paid my Zakat?
In our opinion, you can do that provided you have not paid less zakaat than what is due on you. But if you wish to pay more, God will reward you way more.
