Paying the Zakaah before its appointed time
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: Is it permissible to extract the zakaah before its [appointed] time; Such as two or three months [before]?

Response: There is no harm in [doing] that, because this [practice] was established by the Prophet (sal-Allaahu 'alayhi wa sallam), when he [permitted the] taking of two years worth of zakaah from his uncle al-'Abbaas in advance.
