Zakaah on Mahr Faatimi

Fatwaa ID: 2236

اسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Does zakaat on mehr fatimi need to be given?
And if the mehr money is invested in a business?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

In principle, any zakaatable asset one owns on his/her zakaah date will be added to his/her zakaah calculation. This includes cash or gold received as mahr. Accordingly, if one received Mahr Faatimi as her mahr and she has that amount on her zakaah date, she will add it to her calculation and pay zakaah on that.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
