Q: I obtained items for free with the intention of resale. Despite the fact that I get them for free, must Zakaat still be paid on their current market value?
A: Zakaat is not waajib on such items. Zakaat is waajib on items which are purchased with the intention of resale.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
