Do I have to pay zakat on my property?


 Do I have to pay zakat on my property?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

 In essence, only the following categories are zakātable:

1)     Gold and silver

2)     Cash

3)     Merchandise

4)     Agricultural products

5)     Animals and livestock

 Personal belongings such as a house, car and clothes are not subject to zakāt.[1] 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Mawlana Faraz ibn Adam,


[1]  وَلَيْسَ فِي دُورِ السُّكْنَى وَثِيَابِ الْبَدَنِ وَأَثَاثِ الْمَنَازِلِ وَدَوَابِّ الرُّكُوبِ وَعَبِيدِ الْخِدْمَةِ وَسِلَاحِ الِاسْتِعْمَالِ زَكَاةٌ؛ لِأَنَّهَا مَشْغُولَةٌ بِحَاجَتِهِ الْأَصْلِيَّةِ وَلَيْسَتْ بِنَامِيَةٍ. اهـ. (رد المحتار  ج 2 ص 262 أيج أيم سعيد)
