The use of the Gregorian calendar as the basis of Islamic Finance has created inadvertent embezzlement of zakat payment. That is because the Gregorian calendar is 11.5 days longer than the Islamic calendar. This flawed accounting system has caused a Muslim’s business to underpay the corresponding zakat, which is accumulating into one year for every thirty year of its business operation. This study does not only calculate the zakat payment loss due to the use of the Gregorian calendar in a Muslim business operation, it also calculates the accuracy of the estimate. Lastly, the study proposes a swift way of transforming a conventional financial system to the one that is compliant with shariah principles, at a low cost.
