Paying Zakah to the tribal chief

(Part No. 10; Page No. 27)  A: If what the chief of the tribe and you take from the farmers is given voluntarily and is not Zakah, then there is no problem in taking it, because they give it to you willingly in return for your services for the tribe. But if what you take is given from the Zakah, then it is not permissible for you to take it, because you are not included in the categories of people to whom Zakah should be given, and because it is not permissible to give Zakah in return for the services you provide for the tribe.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
