I am finding it confusing on which price our Zakat is supposed to be based on. As an example, Zakat has become compulsory on me. Now, I had bought this gold from the shop for $50. And if, for example, now I sell it, the price will obviously go down. So for instance I will be selling it for $40 to the gold shop owner.
Me question is: will I be paying Zakat on the $50 (the price I bought it for from the shop) or is it on the $40 (the price I am selling it for)?
