Zakat on shares


I am a stock market investor, I had made an investment since 28/3/2019 In the stock market, This month i had to pay zakaat from 1,62,000rs, But My question is,
Should i pay zakaat As i Had not sold any shares This year, and i had no profit Since today, Should i have to pay zakaat on this Investment As i Not Sold any shares this year.???


Waalykum salam

thank You for your question

I believe you mean Khums and not zakat.
zakat is pains on the following matters:

Zakat on Loan, Salary & Assets


also, Khums is applicable on any money that remains in hand after reducing all you expenses. And it only paid once in life for any surplus.
kindly read further on the matter on the following link:
