    Title: Use of Interest and Zakah money

    Question: I have uncle who is having too much debt from personal finance company and he is paying every month more and more interest money. He is having three children all are earning good but none of them is helping and also my uncle is not discussing this issue with his son. My uncle is also not doing anything his situation is now he can take zakah money also. So that can I use my zakah and interest money both or either of one for that purpose. Is he eligible for taking this money?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 993/998/L=08/1436) If he is really eligible to receive zakah then you may give him both the zakah as well as interest money.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
