Zakāh on Loans
Economic Issues
Question asked by .
Answered by Dr. Shehzad Saleem

I have lent some money to a close relative who is going through tough times in his life. I want to know if I am liable to pay Zakāh on the money I have lent?


You are not liable to pay Zakāh on the amount you have lent for such purposes if your date for Zakāh giving arrives. It is serving the needs of the society. You will be now liable for Zakāh once you receive the money.
