    Default ANSWERED: Can a parent give Zakat to their Children?

    Salaam Alaykum

    I would like to ask a question with respect to whether a mother can give her yearly Zakat to her son or daughter who may be in need of money (of course, this is after the children have passed the age of dependency, and are to fend for themselves).

    It would be good if the scholarly opinions on this matter could be provided.

    Zakaat cannot be given to ascendants, descendants. The Zakaat will not be discharged.

    As Salaamu Alaykum.

    It is not permissible for a parent to give Zakaah to her children.
