There is no Zakah on the Wealth of a religous Donation
Question:

I have a sum of money from some philanthropists (well-doer's)for the purpose of building a Masjid.It has remained with me more than a year.Do i have to pay any Zakah on it or not?
Answer:

There is absolutely no Zakah on this money,because its donors spent it in the way of Allah.You must make haste in carrying out their request( to build the Masjid).
