Nisab of gold and silver

Q: How many grams are there in the 20 dinars mentioned in the chapter on Zakah, or in other words how many grams does one dinar equal? What is the Zakah due on 20 silver dinars in Saudi riyals now? And also on 200 silver dirhams?

A: Firstly, the Nisab (minimum amount on which Zakah is due) of gold is 91.4 grams and Zakah due on it is 2.5%. The Nisab on gold Saudi coins is 11 and 3/7 Saudi riyals. Secondly, the 200 silver dirhams on which Zakah is obligatory equal 56 Saudi silver riyals. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
