Zakah on cotton

A: According to the soundest opinions of scholars, Zakah is not due on cotton. This is also the opinion of the Jumhur (dominant majority of scholars) because the legal basis is the non-existence of the obligation and nothing has been related to us to exempt cotton from this basis; so if there is no obligation on cotton, then no Zakah should be paidMay Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
