We have some agricultural land leased out to someone for cultivation, and every year they pay us a fixed amount for it. In this case, how will the 10% zakah on the production from this land get calculated and who will be responsible for it? Will the 10% zakah be paid on this twice (once on the produce, and then on the money we get)?
When you have leased out the land, you will not be liable for the zakah of its produce. The zakah on the produce has to be paid by the tenants. You will have to pay zakah on the rent received. This in itself is 10 percent according to the view of Mr Javed Ahmad Ghamidi.
