Question

 

I have a property which has a value of £115,000 and in which I currently reside. The mortgage on it at the moment is £99,000.

 

In my zakat calculation do I have to add the property value of £115,000 in the assets (I think not but just want to confirm?)

 

Do I have to add the value of the loan in the Liabilities section £99,000?

 

Answer

 

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

 

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


 You do not have to add the value of the property in the Zakaat Calculations. You may deduct the next 12 payments towards your mortgage bonds.  

 

And Allah knows best
