Every Muslim who owns wealth above nisab for a whole lunar year is obliged to pay Zakat on it, there are no exceptions there is no evidence of any admissible excuses. If this is a long term issue maybe you should consider investing to create an income stream.

So long as what he is getting from your father is sufficient, then he is regarded as being independent of means as a result of that, so it is not permissible to give him zakat. But if his father cannot afford to spend on him, or refuses to do so, or if what he gives him is not sufficient to meet his needs, then in that case it is permissible to give zakat ...

Your question even with the edit is rather basic. You could easily get some more basic information on wikipedia. But to make things clear and hopefully clear your confusion: You are mixing two things: The zakah or zakat on wealth The zakat (or zakah) fard which is often quoted together with salat (prayer) in the qur'an.

You are confusing Zakat with Kaffara and Fidyah. Kaffara is due on a person who breaks their fast without a valid excuse, it is not due on those who have an excuse to not fast, such as a sick person or a traveler, they only have to do قضاء فمن شهد منكم الشهر فليصمه ومن كان مريضا أو على سفر فعدة من أيام أخر So whoever sights [the new moon of] the ...

Al-Nawawi (رحمه الله) said in al-Majmoo’ (5/318): If livestock or any other wealth that is subject to zakaah is being held in pledge, and one year has passed, then zakaah must be paid on it, because it is owned outright. End quote. قال النووي رحمه الله في " المجموع " (5/318) : " لو رهن ماشية أو غيرها من أموال الزكاة ، وحال الحول وجبت فيها الزكاة ؛ لتمام ...

The hadith even if it was qualified as da'if on sunnah.com has been quoted (at least partly) in several other hadith compilation such as a second narration in Jami' at-Tirmidhi, in Sunan ibn Majah, in al-Bayhaqi's as-Sunan al-Kubra (here in Arabic, where he points that the issue is Hamza ibn Maymoun who has been qualified as da'if by Ahmad ibn Hanbal and ibn ...
