I understand how to calculate Zakat, but what I'm unclear on what is considered acclimated wealth.
Let's assume, for the sake of simplifying it, that I owe zakat, and I pay what is due. At the end, I have $100 in savings.
In the following months, I spend $75, leaving me with a balance of $25 in my bank. But throughout the year, I work and earn $100 more.
When the year has passed from when I last gave Zakat, my balance is now $125. But of the original savings I had, only $25 of that remained, and the rest was earned.
So in terms of Zakat, what number would I use for my accumulated wealth? I know it's not $125, because that amount was not held for a year.
The question is if it's $100, because that's the amount I had last year when I paid Zakat, or $25, because that's what's left of the original $100 I had.
