Zakah on honey

Q: Should Zakah (obligatory charity) be paid on honey which is produced by bees?

A: No Zakah is due on honey that is produced by bees. Nevertheless, Zakah is due on the value of the honey if it is prepared for selling, a full lunar year passes, and its value reaches the Nisab (the minimum amount on which Zakah is due). The amount of Zakah on honey in the case mentioned above is a quarter of a tithe.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
