Unknowingly overpaid zakaat in previous years


If someone has unknowingly overpaid zakaat in previous years, and now they realize that they've overpaid, can they offset that amount for this year's zakaat? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Yes, the overpaid amount from the previous years may be offset for this year’s zakat on the condition that the previous years’ excess amount was paid with the intention of zakat. (Fatawa Darul Uloom Deoband: v. 6, p. 76 [Darul Ishaa’at])
