    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 41/41/M=01/1435) If the said widow owns wealth equal to nisab after excluding the necessary expenses and the debt then she shall not be eligible for zakah and zakah cannot be given to her. What is the total wealth the widow owns? If it is known then her eligibility and ineligibility may be confirmed.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
