Zakah is not Wajib on the piece of land which is intended for building and taking it as private house or to renting it out
Zakah (obligatory charity) is not Wajib (obligatory) on the piece of land which is intended for building and taking it as private house or to renting it out. Rather, Zakah is Wajib on the yielded rent if it reaches Nisab (the minimum amount on which Zakah is due) and Hawl (one lunar year calculated from the time a property reaches the minimum amount upon which Zakah is due) has elapsed while it is in the possession of the owner. However, Zakah is obligatory if a person intends to sell the piece of land, Hawl has passed since the time he made the intention, and it reaches the amount of Nisab in itself or in combination with other items liable to Zakah, such as cash or commercial commodities.May Allah grant us success. May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions!
