Q: My wife and I will InshaAllah be going Hajj this year. I have paid the deposit for this already. Is Zakat eligible on the remaining amount?

A: If the places have been booked and deposit paid, then the remaining balance is not Zakatable and therefore you can deduct from the Zakat calculation the amount you owe to the Hajj tour operator.

And Allah knows best!
