Zakat - On Unused Items
  • Question:

    I have extra warm beddings, extra rooms in existing house, extra copper utensils and one small extra building. These all things are not in use. Kindly tell me am I liable to pay Zakat for these items which are not in use?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    In general, basic necessities are not liable for Zakat even if the items are not in frequent use. However the better thing to do would be to include them in Zakat.

    And Allah knows best.
