-,The purpose of zakat is to cater the needs of specific recipients thus it should be paid by Muslim then redistributed back to the recipients immediately. Any delay will affect the welfare of the recipients. This paper attempts to examine this issue according to the four Sunni main schools of fiqh. This includes the definition of the immediacy and delay in the payment and redistribution of zakat, the permitted delays and its consequences. The paper finds that majority of Muslim jurists compel the immediate payment of zakat, while others not. The Muslim jurists also had explained critically a wide range of issues relating to the delay problem especially in the payment of zakat
