Zakat on buy-to-let property?


Dear respected Shaykhs,

May God bless you and send you His infinite mercy and grace.

I have a property that I rent out. Should zakat be paid on the value of the property?

With all best wishes, and thanks,


As-Selamu ‘Aleykum,

There is no Zakat on a property owned with the intention to use or rent it. The aim here is not to to own and sell the property to earn capital gains.
