on dates and grains should be paid in the following way: half a tithe on machine-irrigated land, and one tithe on land that is irrigated by rain and rivers. Grapes take the same ruling as dates, and their Zakah should be given in the form of raisins, just like the Zakah on fresh dates is given in the form of dry dates. If it is sold before giving Zakah, it should be paid in the form of money. There is no Zakah on any other kind of crops, but on their value if they are kept for a Hawl (one lunar year) and they reach the Nisab (the minimum amount on which Zakah is due), whether on their own or by being added to other money or commercial commodities of their owner.
