When to pay Zakat

Zakat should be paid by the person with savings or other ways of wealth at the end of the year, or during the month of Ramadan. It’s an obligation to pay zakat if your savings have not changed for the less within that year. In that sense it is important that you keep a record of your zakat payments and your finances in general.
