Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
Does one have to pay zakat on mobile phone credit? Does one have to pay zakat on any credit on an Oyster card?
For the benefit of the readers, Oyster Card is a plastic smartcard which you can use instead of paper tickets. It is like a pay as you go credit which allows you travel on busses, trams and trains without the need of buying a separate ticket for each.
Zakat is not obligatory on mobile phone credits and on oyster cards as they would come under necessities (Dururete Asliyaah).
