Q: I had a quick question in relation to payment of Zakat and mortgage deductions. I am aware that you can make deductions for capital payments of a mortgage and not the interest. However what if they are rental properties? does this still apply or can you not deduct from your calculated amount?

A: Mortgages on rental properties can also be deducted minus the interest.

And Allah knows best!
