Can i give my zakat to my aunty (father’s sister) so she can do umrah. she is not married she does not has father and brother… We live together and share the expenses. It means can i give money in order to assist her to do umrah not giving all money but as mush as my zakat?
Zakat must be given to a poor or needy Muslim in the form of cash. If she is not classified as poor or needy, giving her from your zakat is not permissible. Going to Umrah is not mandatory for a poor person nor it is recommended if he can’t afford it
