    (1) Yes, in zakah chapter there is difference in halak and istihlak. The wealth on which zakah is wajib in case it is damaged, zakah will no longer remain wajib, but in case of istihlak (destroying) the zakah will remain obligatory, as it is mentioned in al-Dur al-Mukhtar

    ولا فى هالك بعد وجوبها بخلافا المستهلك بعد الحول لوجود التعدي

    The above mentioned question falls in the category of istihlak, hence zakah will not be dropped from the owner of wealth. He will have to pay 250 Euro in zakah.

    كما فى الرد المختار . تتمة : حكم النقود مثل مال التجارة : ففى الفتح: رجل له ألف حال حولها فاشترى بها عبداً للتجارة فما شاء أو عروضاً للتجارة فهلكت ، بطلت عنه الزكوةولو كان العبد للخدمة ، ثم تسقط بموته و تمامه فيه (درمختار مع الشامى كتاب الزكوة باب زكوة الغنم 3/207، 208).
