      So here are the Guidances/rulings for giving Zakat:

      ZAKAT given to Needy!
      Almighty in the Quran. 8 Kinds of People Who Can Accept Zakat.
      In Surah Al-Tawbah, (9:60), it is said “Indeed, charitable offerings are meant to be given to the poor and the indigent, and to those who work on [administering] it, and to those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to [free] those in bondage, and to the debt-ridden, and for the cause of God, and to the wayfarer. [This is] an obligation from God. And God is all-knowing, all-wise.”

      To be eligible to receive zakat, the recipient must be poor and/or needy. A poor person is someone whose property, in excess of his basic requirements, does not reach the nisab threshold. The recipient must not belong to your immediate family; your spouse, children, parents and grandparents cannot receive your zakat.

      Who are entitled to receive zakat according to the Quran?
      Who converted to Islam. Those who are newly converted to Islam are eligible to receive zakat (if they are needy). For example, if someone has converted and is detached from their family and friends, you can give your zakat to them so that they can start their new journey.


      Can a wife give her Zakat to her husband to clear his debts? and on Banu Hashim. Answer: ... So in conclusion we can say that it is permissible a slong as she does not get any direct or indirect benefit from paying the zakat to her husband.
      (AND NOW WE KNOW THE REASON WHY BOBBY1 has more than ONE!) .........ISTRI...

        There is not a bigger mazloom than a man who has more than one wife. I dream about a day when they would both leave me, but they wont. I am too good a cook and good at cleaning.

            I'd say the Ruling in your case is......

            If I can recall correctly All actions are dependent on the INTENTIONS we made at the Time!

            What you intended to give as a Loan! is a Loan until it is returned!

              So true, medically also content people are healthier and have higher testosterone levels. Stress is the biggest killer.

                        It was you dear who brought up the dupatta bondage lol!!

                        Hope your dupatta doesnt reek of Lehsan.

                        Also what is the ruling on able bodied people spending life on welfare mainly from non muslim sources. Is taking Khairaat from non Muslims Halal?

                            would strongly suggest to contact a scholar if you are serious to know this. But as per very little knowledge, I dont think it can be counted in Zakat.
                            Attitude is more important than facts.

                              Yes, you will count that money when giving zakat. It is like your money is in one's possession, available and you can get it back.
                              Never explain urself to any1 The person who likes u doesn't need it &The person who dislike u won't believe it
