My Uncle has a daughter and she is married. But they are so poor. Her husband didn't do any work and they have no mean of earning. Even they have no other source of livelihoods. Is it permitted in Islam to give Zakat to that daughter? And as a cousin other relatives also wanted to give Zakat to them is it permitted in Islam?
If anyone can guide properly.
Thanks in advance

Zakat can be given to a poor relative, provided the recipient is not a Syed.

  • ' Recipient is not a Syed ' I didn't get the meaning of this. Please if you can briefly explain. Commented May 11, 2019 at 14:36
  • Zakat cannot be given to a Syed.
