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

  • There is no Zakaat on items that are purchased for personal use. Therefore, there is no Zakaat on the land.
  • Zakaat has to be discharged annually on assets equivalent/exceeding the Nisaab (minimum Zakaatable amount).
  • And Allah knows best
