Q: I work in Saudi Arabia. I purchased one plot in India in 2011 with the intention of constructing a house or selling it later. Another plot I purchased in 2015 with the intention to build a house. Till now I did not start construction on any one of these two plots. Do I have to pay zakaat for these two plots?
A: Zakaat is not waajib on both the plots.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
