My question is regarding zakat. One of my aunt took a loan from the bank around 12 years back for her daughter’s wedding and she’s not able to pay the loan and it’s a huge amount she has to pay and because of the interest it’s added up.They have daughters but no sons and her husband doesn’t earn that good. My question to you is if I can give zakat to them.

It is not permissible to give zakah to pay off interest based loans.
