Know that the reason to give Zakaat is when one possess in any Hijri date the amount of nisaab and finds himself with the nisaab or more at the end of that lunar date. As such if the asset taxable on zakaat is actually present, then we may discharge the zakaat on those assets for a few years account. But if the asset is not yet available, then the zakaat paid in advance is baseless and void. Wallahu a`lam.
