Q 1: Is it permissible
to give someone, who asks for help with the costs of marriage, from the Zakah (obligatory charity) money?
In the case where this person is Faqir (poor) or Miskin (needy), it is permissible to give them from the Zakah money and it is up to the Zakah receiver to use it for the costs of marriage or not. Likewise, in the case that this person is neither Faqir nor Miskin but is indebted because of a recent marriage and is incapable of paying back the debt, it is permissible to give them from the Zakah money because they are Gharimin (indebted people who can not pay their debts back on their own; they constitute one category of those who are liable to receive Zakah).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
