I would like to know do I pay Zakat on money owed to me. Do I pay zakat on it when i receive it back or do I pay even when it is not in possession.



Yes You have to pay Zakat once you have reached the Niswab for your currency. Niswab is one measure which checks whether you are able or not to pay Zakat.

  • Even if it is not in my possession? – Waqar May 13 '19 at 9:54
  • Yes, of course. It is your money and it will be returned to you once. Hence you have to pay. – Basil May 14 '19 at 9:17
