Q: I have question regarding zakat. I have cultivated bamboo on my land. Do I have to give zakat on bamboo? As far I know, the bamboo plant is not for eating so after harvesting it will I have to pay zakat?
What about sugarcane cultivation? E.g if I cultivate sugarcane on my land, it takes one year to harvest and after harvesting I have to send it to the sugar mills and I receive my money like after 2-3 months. So it takes 14 months and my harvest is almost more than 40000 mound what I have to pay? Will it count in money?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
