Never had to pay zakaah on his wealth-1

Reference: al-Hilyah – Volume 7, Page 322

Ibn Rumayh said:

The yearly income of al-Layth ibn Sa’d was 80,000 deenaars, [and despite this immense wealth] never did Allaah obligate upon him to extract even one dirham in zakaah[1].

[1] This is because he would charitably give plentifully throughout the year, leaving little for himself and his family.

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
