Re: Eligibility for Zakat

Salaamun Alaikum Dear Brother,

ِPlease see the following.

2:215:

(A crucial step toward the establishment of this Zakaat Order will be the equitable
distribution of wealth.) They ask you, (O Messenger) what they should give.
Say, “What you give shall go to parents, relatives, orphans, widows, and those
who are left helpless or feel left out in the society, the poor, those whose hard
earned income is insufficient to meet their basic needs, those whose lives have
stalled for any reason, and the disabled, the needy wayfarer, and the homeless
son of the street.” And whatever good you do, most certainly, God is well Aware
of it.

Please note that Zakat is the obligatory charity (Haq) and must be paid when income earned and NOT on savings or excess. Like income taxes which are collected on earned income and not on savings. The needy person should be given the Zakat on a regular basis and it's in accordance with current economics practices. Do we like to be paid once a year or on a regular basis? See 6:141

God bless.
