Is Zakah(obligatory charity) due on owned land?

Is Zakah(obligatory charity) due on owned land?

Answer:
Zakah is due on the land used as an article of merchandise and was originally bought for that end. Zakah is due on it at the end of every lunar year. Its value is estimated, and (2.5%) of the total value of all such lands owned by the questioner is given as Zakah. However, no Zakah is due on the land used for building a house, or an agricultural purpose.

This answer was collected from the official government Iftaa Department of Jordan.
