f:871 -    Can mother give Zakaat to her children
Country : Hyderabad,
Name : Syed Quadri
Question:     Can a mother give Zakaat or Sadqa to her own children?
............................................................................
Answer:     Zakaat cannot be given to parental relations like grandfather/grandmother and similarly all paternal and maternal relationships and to relations of marriage like son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter and all others below them.  Also, a husband and wife cannot give Zakaat to one another.

Apart from these all other relatives who are in need of Zakaat, if they are not descendants of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) can be given Zakaat.  Relatives should be preferred over others while giving Zakaat.  Giving Zakaat to relatives has a 2-fold reward, one of giving Zakaat and the other of maintaining good relationships with the relatives.

The ruling is the same for Sadqa Fitr.

And Allah Most High knows best.
