I want to ask that my mother who is a widow is taking care of her daughter’s gold property and its not in use. Is zakat applicable on it as she doesnt work and dont want to do business with this gold property? Someone told her in this case its not applicable. If she doesnt agrees then do her daughter need to work to pay zakat?

The zakah is due from the owner of the property, in this case, the daughter. Her daughter can pay the zakah by saving up for it or by selling some of the gold to pay it.
