I keep a trust, which is a sum of money, that belongs to some of my relatives (Part No. 8; Page No. 235
It is Wajib (obligatory) on you to pay the Zakah due on this money if it reaches the Nisab (the minimum amount on which Zakah is due) and a Hawl (one lunar year calculated from the time a property reaches the minimum amount upon which Zakah is due) has passed on it while it is in your possession. The requirements of the Shar`y (Islamically lawful) guardianship include the investment of the wealth of those under guardianship so that it is not consumed through Zakah. Your reference in all this is the Shar`y court. Thus you should consult it in order to examine the matter according to Shari`ah (Islamic law).May Allah grant us success. May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions!
