Zakaat on one's car

Q: Do I have to pay Zakaah on my car which is finish paid for?

A: If you purchased the car for personal use, it will enter under your necessities and zakaat will not have to be paid for it. However, if you purchased the car with the intention of resale and you did not cancel your intention to sell the car, zakaat will be compulsory upon it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
