A widow house maid has been given Rs 1 Lakh 35 thousand to give lease amount to the land lord, for the house she stays, and she gives minimum rent. Is she liable for zakah for next year?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 41/41/M=01/1435)

If the said widow owns wealth equal to nisab after excluding the necessary expenses and the debt then she shall not be eligible for zakah and zakah cannot be given to her.
What is the total wealth the widow owns? If it is known then her eligibility and ineligibility may be confirmed.

Allah knows Best!
