zakaat on deposit

Question ID: 31090

Assalaamualaikum Muftie
I am so sorry to bother youI have two questions for Muftie. Kindly clarify the following for me
1) English translation of the Holy Quran by Abdullah yusuf Ali. Is it advisable for us to read as there were rumours that it contained a few errors.< br>2)We have four apartments for rent and Tenants pay a DEPOSIT when they move in
We have to do this as most of them are not honourable
Mufti are we liable for ZAKAAT on this money?
I would highly appreciate your response at your earliest convenience

1) It has major errors. Write to Majlis for copy. Read our translation 'Quraan Made Easy'
2) No, the money is not yours.
