Paying zakat to a person with house loan
I have a brother that has a house loan (with riba :/). Will he fall into the category of a person in debt (Gharimin) that is eligable to recieve zakat?
Two things to take into consideration:
- He can fullfill all his needs with his current salary and pays back some of the loan every month, but he doesn't have money to pay back all at ounce.
- In theory it would be possible for him to sell the house, pay back the loan, and rent an apartment, but he chooses to not do so.
