Is there zakat on fruits and plants in one’s garden?


I have fruit trees in my back garden which are not for business.  Is there any Zakaat on them?


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

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

One does not have to pay Zakāt or ῾Ushr on fruit bearing trees in one’s garden.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Mufti Faraz ibn Adam al-Mahmudi,


وَلَوْ كان في دَارٍ رَجُلٍ شَجَرَةٌ مُثْمِرَةٌ لَا عُشْرَ فيها كَذَا في شَرْحِ الْمَجْمَعِ لِابْنِ الْمَلِكِ (الفتاوى الهندية ج 1 ص 186 الرشيدية)

رجل في داره شجرة مثمرة لا عشر فيه وإن كانت البلدة عشرية بخلاف ما إذا كانت في الأراضي (فتاوى قاضيخان)

فتاوى دار العلوم زكريا ج 3 ص 161 زمزم
