    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1300/866/H=1433) If he had only 100 gram gold and received loan by depositing the gold as security or any other gold kept in the bank as security and got the loan from the bank then there is zakah on the gold and jewellery which is kept in the bank: فلا زكوة على مكاتب لعدم الملك التام ولا فى كسب ما ذون ولا فى مرهون بعد قبضه اهـ در مختار وفى شرحه الفتاوي رد المحتار اى لا على المرتهن لعدم ملك الرقبة ولا على الراهن لعدم اليد اهـ ج 2 ص 7
