    In short, yes. Please enter appropriate numbers in out Zakat Calculator after reading description for each box. When you reach the end, it will generate a statement showing you exactly what percentage is applied to what and how much you owe. It’s also a great way to learn the sharia of zakat.

      The property on rent is exempt from zakat. If you read and follow the instructions in our Zakat Calculator this will be sufficiently evident.

      Yes you can pay your previously due zakat. Since you made this error due to lack of knowledge, it can be hoped that Insha’allah it will be accepted.

      This is a misconception. The correct concept is that zakat on your assets is due once a year. On the day your zakat is due, you have pay zakat on whatever assets you own on that day excluding anything that’s exempt. This has nothing to do with your earnings zakat (rent in this case) which is due as soon as the money is received.
