I have a cousin sister who earns her living by working at homes as maid, she has 3 children and I want to give my zakat fitr to her but my concern is that her husband is alcohol drinker and in this case is my zakat fitr considered as valid? Please advise.
Jazak allah khair..
Nadeem Mohammed Brother According to me you should give zakat to your sister.
Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar said that the Holy Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ordered the people to pay Zakat al Fitr before going to the Eid prayer. (al-Bukhari)
The main purpose if zakat-Al-Fitr is to make poor people’s celebrated there festival. If you will give Zakat-Al-Fitr to your sister then that will be helpful for her. In any case, if her husband will do anything wrong with that money than its his fault, not yours. You can’t drop this idea just because of her husband.
Hope my answer will help you.
