    Title: Zakah on property

    Question: I have open land 150 sq yards & 200 sq yards purchase 3 years back for my daughter for my son respectively - do I need to pay zakah for that? I don't have any intention to sale it, just wanted to give it to them on their marriage.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    In the question mentioned above, if you have not bought the said land with the intention of selling rather you have bought it for your son and daughter then no zakah is fardh on it.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
