Zakat on rented out home

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

I live and work in Saudi Arabia. My home in England is rented out and I receive rent from it on a monthly basis. My understanding is that Zakat is due on the rent that I receive not on the value of the property itself. Is this correct?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Wa Alaykum Assalam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu,

Yes, your understanding is correct: zakat is due on your rent (accounted with the rest of your zakatable wealth), not on the value of the property itself.
