Nasihah: Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Umar (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that the Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There is a polish for everything, the polish for the heart is the Zikr of Allah” (Kanzul Ummal)
Question and Answer:
Q. Can Zakaat be given to Shia families?
(Query published as received)
A. Zakaat can only be given to Muslims. Shias who believe in the Qur’an being incomplete and slander Aaishah (Radiyallahu Anha) are not Muslims and cannot be given Zakaat.
