Question 413) - Is Zakah payable on horses?

A:lf one owns sawaim horses (whether male or female) for a year then one has a choice - either pay a Dinar for each horse or value them and pay 5 Dirham in every 200 of the value. According to Imaam Abu Hanifa RAH. if only stallions are owned then Zakah is not due.*

*Al-Hidayah: because they do not reproduce. Similarly if there are only mares owned.
