Zakah is obligatory on the harvest of peanuts and sesame

A: Zakah is obligatory on the harvest of peanuts and sesame, because they are measured and saved items, provided that they reach the Nisab (the minimum amount on which Zakah is due) which is 300 Sa`s according to the Sa` of the Prophet (peace be upon him), which is equal to 3 kilograms approximately, due to the general meaning of the Ayah (Qur'anic verse) where Allah (Exalted be He) states: O you who believe! Spend of the good things which you have (legally) earned, and of that which We have produced from the earth for you The Prophet (peace be upon him) stated: No Zakah is due on less than five Wasqs (1 Wasq = 60 Sa`s = 180 kg. Approx.) (Agreed upon by Al-Bukhari and Muslim) The amount of Zakah is 10% on the land that is naturally irrigated by rain and rivers. However, the due Zakah is only 5% on the land irrigated by machinery that incurs costs, such as irrigation from artesian wells.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
