Assalam Alaikum

I and my wife both are working. I don't have any saving from last one year, although my wife has, so do I need to pay Zakat on behalf of my wife or Zakat need to be paid from my wife savings?


Zakat is paid per person not as a family. Your wife has to pay her Zakat not you if she had enough savings money for Zakat. Same applies for you.

Please refer to the answer in this question:

Would the Zakat be applicable to both the husband and wife's gold?
