Is it compulsory to give every beggar that comes to your car or home?

Is it compulsory to give every beggar that comes to your car or home?Q: On the issue of begging I would like to know whether it is compulsory to give to every beggar that comes to your car or home if you are in possession of extra monies? Eg: does it matter if you can see the person is on drugs or is drunk or is well dressed etc.

A: If one feels that the one begging is in need and in difficulty, then one may assist him. However, if one has knowledge regarding a certain beggar that he has made begging his profession or he will abuse it by buying drink, drugs etc., then one should refrain from supporting such a person in his wrong.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
