Answer

(Fatwa: 1477/1479/M=1430)

 

There is no Zakah on the price of the truck, so there is no need to give Zakah by selling it. And, in the case mentioned above, there is no Zakah on its profits as well. Yes, if you save some money from family expenses which is equal to nisab, you will have to pay its Zakah after completion of one lunar year.
