Note 1: You may use the current value for ease of calculation or use the minimum amount during the last twelve months.

Note 2: Alternatively, a less preferred opinion is to list only the penalty-free value of the account.

Note 3: Nisaab is taken as the value of 3 ounces of gold. Since the gold price fluctuates, you may update it with the current value.

You may pay your Zakat to your local Masjid or to Zakat Chicago or share with both.
