    Title: Zakat Payment to Own Sister

    Question: I am paying my parent's zakah from my earnings. Now my questions on these fronts are: (1) Can I pay my parents’ zakah to my own sister from my earnings? (2) If the answer of first question is "No" then can I pay zakah payable on me to my own sister?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 16071055/L=1433) (1) You cannot give the zakah of your parents to your real sister. However, you can give your own zakah to your sister. Note: The zakah of parents shall be paid if you pay it with their direct or indirect permission from them. If you pay their zakah each year regularly then it shall be enough.
