Zakaat and Charity

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.

Q: If a shelter for abused women receives Zakah, must they use the Zakah only for the Muslim women residents at the Shelter?

Q.) My question is that we don't have our own house but we have a plot and some saved money for construction purpose. We understand that we don't have to pay Zakat on piece of land but not sure about the money saved that is still not enough for the construction purpose. Please guide us.

Q: I operate a business from home and am not sure how to calculate my zakaat on my stock? Pleasezakaat advise me.
