Nisab due on grains and the amount that should be paid

A: Nisab of Zakah on grains such as wheat, barley, corn, and rice is five Wasqs (1 Wasq = 60 Sa`s =130,320 kg), where a Sa` is equal to four Mudds (a dry measure of half bushel, 543 grams) according to the measuring of the Prophet (peace be upon him), and it is also equal to four hundred and eighty Mithqals (1 Mithqal = 4.25 grams), which is estimated at four handfuls with both hands. The amount of Zakah that should be paid is one tithe for land that is irrigated by rain and springs without machines, and half a tithe for land that is irrigated by machines, whether by camels or other means.May Allah grant us success, May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
