The Noble Quran does not mention any fixed amount to pay for zakah, which implies that charity is to be given in accordance with one's financial means.  Since everyone's financial status differs, thus the Noble Quran has not stated any clear-cut amounts to be paid as charity (zakah).   The concept of paying 2.5% as an established and standard rule comes from extra-Quranic sources for sure, probably a mix of hadith and shariah rulings.  They say the second righteous Caliph, Omar bin Khattab, fixed it at 2.5%.  But cannot be confirmed.  In any case, it's not from the Quran.  I am aware our jurists have needlessly made the aspect of charity very complicated with different titles to different types of charities.  But it really doesn't have to be that way.   Just pay whatever you can comfortably afford.  For a clearer understanding, I suggest please read our very comprehensive post on this topic Charity (Zakah) as given in the Noble Quran.  Also take a look at the thread-conversation and related links attached in that post which you may find useful too.
