بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”
Dear brother, if the land is irrigated naturally (by rain, adjacent stream, or spring, etc.), then the ‘zakah’ is determined at 10% of the produce of the land; and if the land is irrigated by water from artificial means (wells, purchased water, tubes or tube wells, canals, pumps etc.), the ‘zakah’ dues are 5% of the produce. In case the land is watered equally by artificial as well as natural means, then zakah payable will be three-fourths of a tithe ie 7.5%.
All of the costs involved in harvesting, transportation, threshing, cleaning, storing, and others should be deducted before zakah is paid. And Allah alone knows the best.
I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.Ask Your Question
