    1 gram is $55 today (it changes everyday). Times 4.25 is $234. So each dinar is $234 aprox. Multiplied by $100 you get $23,400.

    This is all rough. I rounded up all values to the whole dollar amount (it was only a few cents off, anyway) and this value changes slightly everyday.

    Any mathematician in the house ?

    Does anybody know how much 1 Gold Dinar was worth in the time of the Prophet (saw) and the Sahaba (ra) ?

    I came across this...

    According to Islamic law, the Islamic dinar is a coin of pure gold weighing 4.25 grams.
    'Auf bin Malik reported: "I came to the Prophet, Allah blessed him and granted him peace, during the battle of Tabuk while he was in a leather tent, and he said: 'Count six things before the last hour: my death, then the conquest of Jerusalem, then the pestilence that will overtake you like the disease of cattle, then the excess of wealth, so much that when a man shall be given a hundred dinars he shall remain dissatisfied, then revolution from which not a single house in Arabia shall be spared, then a treaty between you and the Westerners (Banu Asfar - the Romans), but they shall cheat you and march against you under 80 banners with 12000 soldiers under each banner. (Bukhari)
