Malik said that a collector wrote to 'Umar bin Abdul Aziz complaining about a man who refused to pay zakat. 'Umar wrote that he should leave him alone and not take his zakat from him with the other Muslims. When the man heard of this, he felt pained and paid the zakat on his property. The collector then wrote to 'Umar making mention of this fact, and 'Umar bin Abdul Aziz wrote back (asking him) to take his zakat [Refer Muwatta Imam Malik: 1/270]
It is not permissible for zakat to be used for the purpose of sponsoring Qurban worship. This includes either buying animals or by sponsoring or giving it directly.. Generally, this is because the wealth of zakat itself has become the right of the poor and the asnaf, which exclusively allocated from the wealth of wealthy people as obligated in Islamic law. It is a special right and has been determined to be acceptable thus it can not be used for the purposes of Qurban worship.
Firstly we should know that Allah commands His believing servants to spend on charity. Ibn Abbas states that this should from the pure, honest money they have earned and from the fruits and vegetables that have been grown for them in the land. Ibn Abbas said: “Allah commanded them to spend from the purest, finest and best types of money, and prohibited them spending from evil and dishonest money because Allah is pure and good and only accepts that which is pure and good.” [Ibn Kathir: 1/630]
In Islam, men are forbidden to wear jewelry made of gold, silver, or any other substance, except for a plain silver ring which is permissible. Ali bin Abi Talib narrated that (meaning): "The Prophet of Allah [SAW] took hold of some silk in his right hand and some gold in his left, and then he said: 'These two are forbidden for the males of my Ummah (Muslim Nation).'" [Source: Sunan an-Nasa'i no. 5144]. In other hadith, Ibnu Umar narrated that (meaning):...
Based on one view, zakat is obligated on land and its output when land is rented to the farmer for a given amount of money or any commodity. It (the 10% or 5%) becomes due from the owner, according to Abu Hanifah. He argues that zakat, though usually collected from the output, is, in fact, a levy on the land. In renting, the land remains owned by the owner and not by the user, and since zakat is a charge on the land, similar to kharaj (a type of individual Islamic tax on agricultural land), it is the owner’s responsibility to pay it. Renting is like farming, a sort of increase in the land, and out of this increase zakat is paid [Refers Al-Mughni and Fathul Qadir] While, from another view, which the opinion of the majority is that zakat is changed to the renter on the grounds that zakat is a levy on the output and not on the land. Consequently, the owner of the output is responsible for zakat. It becomes obvious to us, along with Ibn Rushd, that there is a difference in the concept of zakat.
