Obligatory Of Zakat In Wives’ Property

I gave my wife a Gold chain from the money of her maher. Shall I have to pay Zakat on that Chain? Or it is the responsibility of my wife because it is her property now?

If the wife owns nisab with required conditions, the responsibility of paying Zakat as well would lie on her and she will have to pay the Zakat though she does so by selling jewels. As husband is not responsible of her salah, he is not responsible of her Zakat as well. Yes, if husband pays the Zakat happily for her with her permission, the Zakat will be valid and she would be free from obligation.
