Do I Have To Pay Zakat on Rented House or One I Am Selling? – Shaykh Uthaymeen

Shaykh Saalih ibn Uthaymeen

Question: If a man owns a house which he rents out, it is not the house he currently lives in, does he pay zakaah from the value of that house or from what the rent money he earns from it?

Answer: The house that is rented out, if it is intended for renting or utilizing only, then there is no zakaah to be paid from its (current) value, but rather zakaah should be paid from the rent money he receives from it when a year passes from the date of the rental contract (with the tenant).

But if the rent money he receives does not complete a full year from the date of the contract, then there is no zakaah to be paid from it. For example: if he rents it for 10000 per year, and he received 5000 at the signing of the contract and he spent it, then he received the other 5000 half way through the year and he spent it before that year was completed (i.e. from the date of the rental contract), then there is no zakaah to be paid from it here because this money has not completed a year.

Whereas if that house has been prepared for renting, but originally he bought it to sell it and now he is waiting to profit from it but he says: I will rent it until it is sold. In this instance zakaah is due from the value of the house and also from the rental money if it completes a year as we have mentioned just before. In this situation zakaah is also due from the value of the house because he has intended to sell it and he doesn’t want to keep it.

Therefore everything that you intend to sell and profit from there is zakaah to be paid from it due to the Saying of the Prophet (SallaaAllaahu alayhi wa sallam): “Actions are by their intentions, and for every person is what they intended”. So a person who has money and he wants to profit from it has intended its value not its physical presence, so its value is the worth of money. Therefore zakaah is due from the value of money. So upon this, this person who has intended to sell the house, it is upon him to pay zakaah from the value of the house and from the rental money if it completes a year from the date of the contract.

Reflect About Your Death and This Ramadhan – Al Allaamah Ahmad an Najmee

Al Allaamah Ahmad an Najmee (rahimahullah):

O slave of Allaah, may Allaah have mercy upon you; Observe the fasting of the month of Ramadhaan and standing in its night prayer. Take benefit from this opportunity, it may be that you will not get it again, as perhaps death may snatch you before the next Ramadhaan reaches you again.

What Do I Owe My Parents? – Shaykh Zayd bin Haadi

Al Allaamah Zayd bin Haadi Al Madhkhalee (rahimahullah) said:

“The greatest act of good (towards parents) is that the son whom Allaah has bestowed upon him with some (Islamic) knowledge, that from it, he offers (teaches) it to his parents as a first priority.

And this is better than being good to them by giving them money or anything other than that.

Then (it follows that) he should be good and dutiful to them with good words and good actions which pleases Allaah, then with that which pleases both of them (Parents).

[This applies to both Son and Daughter]”

Knowledge is Priceless – Shaykh Zayd bin Haadi

 

Al Allaamah Zayd bin Haadi Al Madkhalee (rahimahullah) said:

“Knowledge is priceless, and its seeker has undoubtedly known its value, and he has given his utmost effort for him to become a patient and forbearing teacher, because he is an inheritor (of knowledge) from the inheritors of the Noble Prophet (upon him be the salaah and salaam).”

The Calamity of Ignorance & Its Trial – Shaykh Zayd bin Haadi

 

Al Allaamah Zayd bin Haadi Al Madkhalee (rahimahullah) said:

“And People are not exactly similar, the reality is that ignorance is like (different levels of) darknesses, and ignorance is from the greatest calamity and trial, especially when Allaah grants and favours you with an opportunity in your life for you to learn (Islamic knowledge), you instead spend your entire lifetime in enjoying your worldly physical existence, this is what (true and great) loss is.”
