tawheed center Ask the Imam Please post your questions here for the Imam. 2 Comments Khalil on May 11, 2020 at 1:31 pm Assalaamu ‘Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Please advise if I’m required to pay zakat on my 401k If I’m still employed with my employer. Reply Imam Ehsan on May 14, 2020 at 12:00 pm Walakum Salam Yes zakat is due on 401(k), The choice is either you pay now or defer till after retirement, if you pay annually the obligation will be fulfilled and if you wish to defer till after retirement or if you gain access to funds pre-retirement, you will pay a lump sum for all previous years.
