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

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.
