Zakat on the proceeds from rent

Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. I own a building which was rented out for eight years. The rentals were of varying amounts. I did not pay Zakat for the rentals which I received because nothing from these rentals would remain in my account after the passage of a year. Is something due from me? زكاة عائد الإيجار


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: If nothing from the rentals remains after the passage of a year, then nothing is due from you because the passage of a year while a person possesses wealth is a condition for the compulsoriness of Zakat.
