Asalam aleykum yaa ayuhal muslimun

I have question about Zakat. I believe that if someone even have a year round $100 saved should pay zakat $2.50.

My question is our mosque have received charity $5000 to rebuild. From this money we paid some money to buy woods for the mosque. Now, we have $3000 left over before finishing to build the mosque. Should we pay Zakat from $3000 * 2.5% since this amount of the money kept for a year?

Salam,
 
I think the zakah receiver (in this case mosque, I floow school that mosque is a valid zakah receiver) no need to pay zakah.

There is no zakat on $100, as it is far below the minimum amount zakat is payable for, as well as 3K for the mosque, which are also funds for a specific purpose.  And Allah Knows Best.

Asalamu aleykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

I have question about zakat on jeweleries. My wife had jeweleries for herself 260 gram.

Later she sold all of her jeweleries for $9000. She has been wearing some of her jeweleries for the last 20 years and some it about 5 years.

Now, should she pay zakat from this money? If so, for how many years should she pay zakat?

Thank you very much

You can not give your Zakat money to Mosque because it deserves poor and needy or Deni Madrasas.
