If Zakaat was overpaid previously, can it be carried forward to the following years?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Yes, overpaid Zakat will be considered as advance Zakat payments for the future years.
And Allah Knows Best.
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
