    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 600/595=M)

     

    The poor and needy can be given zakah money except the Sadat (members of Syed family). Allah Subhanahu WataÂ’la has mentioned those who are legal recipients of zakah in the verse: انما الصدقات للفقراء والمساکین (الآیۃ). For details, you may refer to Quran. The Sadat can not receive zakah:

    و منھا أن لا یکون من بنی ھاشم لما روی عن النبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم ان قال: یا معشر بنی ھاشم! ان اللہ کرہ لکم غسالۃ الناس و عوضکم منھا بخمس الخمس من الغنیمۃ، و روی عنہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم انہ قال: ان الصدقۃ محرمۃ علی بنی ھاشم۔

    The relative Sadat who are poor and needy should be given other charity money except zakah.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
