Maliks Muwatta Book 17, Hadith Number 37B.

Section : Fruits, Animal Fodder and Vegetables for which No Zakat has to be Paid.

Malik said, “The sunna that we are all agreed upon here (in Madina) and which I have heard from the people of knowledge, is that there is no zakat on any kind of fresh (soft) fruit, whether it be pomegranates, peaches, figs or anything that is like them or not like them as long as it is fruit.”

He continued, “No zakat has to be paid on animal fodder or herbs and vegetables of any kind, and there is no zakat to pay on the price realised on their sale until a year has elapsed over it from the day of sale which counts as the time the owner receives the sum.”
