Is zakaah due on bonuses?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
The company for which I work gives fifteen days’ wages as a bonus at the end of every year of service, but this bonus comes at the end of the period of service. If I take this bonus after the end of the period of service, is zakaah due on it or not?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

If the situation is as described, then no zakaah is due on that bonus until you receive it, and one year has passed from the time of receiving it. End quote.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
