Can I give interest monies to my needy sister?

Question:
 

Asalaamualaikum
 

Can I give away my interest money to my sister who is down and out?  She does not have any source of income what so ever?
 

Jazakallah
 

Answer:
 

If she is poor and needy, she may be given interest monies. The donor should not expect any reward (Ajar/Thawaab) for giving it to her.
 

And Allah knows best
