Can you give interest money to children in need, red nose day charities and animal charities run by non-muslims. Can you also give to non-muslims who are not that well off (poor).
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
It is permissible to dispense of interest funds to the poor and needy even if they are non-Muslims or Muslims.
