Q: What is the mas’alah regarding a person who received some wealth prior to the completion of the zakaatable year?
E.g. Zaid’s zakaatable year ends on the 1st of Ramadhaan. Few days before the 1st of Ramadhaan, he received a lump sum of R1, 000, 000 in inheritance. Will Zaid have to pay zakaat on the R1, 000, 000 as well?
A: Zaid will have to pay zakaat on the R1, 000, 000 as well.
