To avoid zakaat through heelah

To avoid zakaat through heelah

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

If a person gives his wealth (in order to escape Zakaat) as a gift to someone before Zakaat becomes wajib upon him, then he takes it back after a while, then although Zakaat is not binding on him the act it Makruh Tahrimi.  In this way one is depriving the poor of their rightful dues and one is also closing the doors of Zakaat.  (Ilmul Fiqh p.34 v.4)
