    Title: ZAKAT

    Question: Mrs. A owned a building but then she transferred it in the name of her daughter B. However, still Mrs. A is receiving the rent. Who is responsible to pay zakah Mrs. A or her daughter B?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1187/917/H=10/1434) The daughter did not become owner merely by transferring the name. Mrs. A shall remain its owner until it is not given into complete possession of daughter B. It is right for Mrs A to receive the rent and she shall also pay zakah on the rent (if applicable).
