1. When does zakat period end? Ie when should it be given?
2. Is zakat due on rent money? The moeny goes towards mortgage and repairs?
3. If bank pays interest on savinv accounts i calculate all interest for the year and take this out and put it on top of zakat so I don’t keep interest moeny as its not mine. I donate it.
