Dear Brother,

You have to pay zakath on the amount of Rent collected. Its similar to the yield of land.
There is no zakath on the value of the house. There is only zakath on the rental income from the house.

The house in which you are staying is not giving any income no zakath is required over it.


Its my duty to help those in need. You are free to ask as many questions as you like.

If you are not convinced or feel the answer did not address all your questions, pls write back immediately without any hesitation. Please do forgive me if there is an unexpected delay in replying.
