minor need not pay

Q: As Salaamu alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh Sheikh,
May Allah reward you for answering my questions always. Alhamdulillah! my question is; Is it obligatory to pay zakaat on the wealth of a minor even though he is not mukallaf (accountable)?

A child not reaching the age of maturity would not pay zakat.

Allah Certainly Knows Best
