Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. There is an amount of money which was set aside for building a mosque. However, the work to build the mosque has not yet started, and a year has passed since the money was acquired. The amount is 4000 pounds. Is Zakat due on it?

زكاة أموال التبرعات

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:   This money is for Allah and is not owned by any specific person, thus there is no Zakat upon it. However, I advise you to hasten in building the mosque and use the money for the purpose that it was set aside for. Dr. Khalid al-Muslih   09/10/1424 H
