    Title: Zakat on land sold

    Question: I had a plot of land inherited from my father which I sold and received a down payment the balance was to be given after four months . After receiving the down payment my zakah date was due. Do I have to pay zakah on the proceeds of the land sold?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 116/72/H=1/1438)

    If you got the amount of the plot before the fixed date of zakah then zakah shall be wajib on that amount as well.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
