Is this a Hadith?
The beloved Rasul (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has said: “The completion of your Islam is that you pay Zakah of your wealth.”
Yes, this is a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
Sayyiduna ‘Alqamah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) told them: “The completion/perfection of your Islam lies in discharging the Zakah of your wealth.”
(Musnad Bazzar; Kashful Astar, Hadith: 876, Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 6 volume: 18)
The Hadith is well corroborated and suitable to quote.
(Refer: Al Ahad Wal Mathani of Ibn Abi ‘Asim, Hadith: 2334, Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 520 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 3 pg. 62)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
