Zakah should be paid in its same kind

A: Anyone who owns any wealth should pay the Zakah on the items in kind. Thus, Zakah on cash should be paid in cash, Zakah on wheat should be paid in wheat, Zakah on rice should be paid in rice, and Zakah on dates should be paid in dates, and so on.Zakah is due on the money used for business, if it reaches the Nisab (the minimum on which Zakah is due) by itself or when combined with other money or commercial commodities owned by the same person, provided that it has been in its owner's possession for a lunar year. The Zakah due on this is 2.5% to be paid in cash. (Part No. 9; Page No. 197) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
