Zakat after being scammed


Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhuh

I have been scammed by people for $250,000 to build a mosque and lost all my money. How is zakat calculated for my money after the incident?


As-Salamu ‘Alaikum,

Since there is no predominant opinion in this regard, and it could be that the money was lost due to your negligence, it is safer for you to pay Zakat on the money you lost. Allah knows best.
