I intended to give a piece of gold of mine to one of my family member as charity. But now I am thinking to give it as my zakat to them. First I intended to give purely as charity not zakat. But now I want to give it as my zakat. Is it ok to change my intention from charity to zakat. Pls reply

Changing your intention is permissible before giving it away. However, you must be sure it is someone who is poor or needy.
