Q: Can a daughter give her zakaat to her widowed mother who lives of a state grant?

A:

Zakaat cannot be given to one's ascendants, descendants and spouse. hence she cannot give Zakaat to her mother. if hse has alternate funds to assist her mother she should be assisted with the alternate funds. if not, her mother may receive Zakaat from others if she is deserving.

Charity with a prize incentive!A certain organisation requests contribution towards a noble charity initiative. An incentive for making a contribution is an entry into a draw with the possibility of winning a lucrative prize. The organisers have made it clear that no monies from the charity would be utilised for the prizes. The prizes are sponsored independently. Is such an initiative in order?
