Aslm Mufti Saheb
. I am in the process of buying a house since last year September.
I had to pay a deposit which is still in the lawyers trust account.
The amount of the deposit was R450,000.00
The house In Sha Allah will be transferred onto my name soon but at the moment it is not mine.
I pay my zakaat annually in Ramadaan.
My question is:
If the house is not yet transferred onto my name when my zakaat is due do I take out zakaat on the R450,000.00?
I also have debt amounting to about R115,000.00
. Jazaka Allah
