From the Fatwa Department

Q: I am somewhat perplexed by the determination of Zakat. Particularly the holding period for an investment or cash asset.

Q. Can we give zakat or fitra to non-Muslims who are needy?

Q: Is it permissible to discharge Zakaat on one’s Zakaatable wealth before the expiry of one complete lunar year?

Q: Can Zakaat be given to one’s paternal uncle (father’s brother) if he is eligible to receive Zakaat?

Q: Can Zakaat be used to pay off the financial debts of a person in financial difficulty. The payment is intended to be made directly to his creditors? It is feared that if the Zakaat money is given to him he will misuse it?

Q. My husband and I live with my parents-in-law. My father-in-law is retired and my mother-in-law is a surgeon (a bread winner). My mother-in-law takes care of most of our expenses such as food, shelter, college tuition, etc. My husband works in his mother's office. My husband and I have more than the zakatable assets.
