Q: Do I have to pay zakat on personal property I intend to sell?
A: As a general rule, zakat is not due on personal property. If you intend to use your personal property for commerce, zakat is due after the completion of 1 hijra year from the time you actively put it on the market. Source: Hidayat al-Raghib
