Question

Must zakaah be paid from the money that is stored after the year has passed, or can zakaah be paid from other income?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

Whoever has wealth on which zakaah must be paid does not have to pay it from the stored wealth itself, rather he can pay it from other wealth. 

Al-Nawawi (may Allaah have mercy on him) narrated in al-Majmoo’ (5/346) that the scholars were unanimously agreed that it is permissible to pay zakaah from wealth other than the wealth on which it is due. 

And Allaah knows best.
