Egypt's Dar Al-Ifta

Can the parents give zakat to their children?


Asalamo Aalaikom,

Can a mother or father pay zakat to the son or daughter and if so, can they pay all of the amount due or only a percentage of their zakat.
Thank you.


It is permissible to give one's due zakat to one's financially disabled ascendants and descendants. It is also permissible to give it to one's son-in-law (daughter's husband), to one's married daughter if her husband is needy and to the sister in need.
