Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. Is Zakat due on delayed salaries?

هل في الرواتب المتأخرة زكاة؟

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions. Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. As to what follows: In response to your question, we say:   There is no Zakat on these salaries , because they are money which you do not yet possess. It is from the conditions of Zakah that a person must possess the wealth from which he gives out Zakah.
