Is there Zakah due on the land one bought for trade and allowed some orphans to plant it?

A : If you intend to use this land for business, then it is considered as a commercial commodity and Zakah is due on it. You must calculate the revenues of your land when a Hawl ( one lunar year calculated from the time a property reaches the minimum amount upon which the Zakah is due) passes and is in your possession as the owner, then pay a Zakah of 2.5% of the amount of your calculated revenues if your land has reached its Nisab (the minimum amount on which Zakah is due). If you change your mind and decide to build a house on your land, then no Zakah is due, as it is no longer a commercial commodity in this case.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
