Subject :

Fatwa Number : 1208

Classified : Who is Obliged to Pay Zakah and what is the Amount

Fatwa Type : Summarized Fatawaa


Question :

Is Zakah(obligatory charity) due on owned land?


The Answer :

Zakah is due on the land used as an article of merchandise and was originally bought for that end. Zakah is due on it at the end of every lunar year. Its value is estimated, and (2.5%) of the total value of all such lands owned by the questioner is given as Zakah. However, no Zakah is due on the land used for building a house, or an agricultural purpose.
