Q 3: We know that the Rightly-Guided Caliph,
`Umar ibn `Abdul-`Aziz
to be given to people preparing for marriage, after finding no poor or needy people. Nowadays, who has the priority for Zakah, religious people who are preparing for marriage and who abide by the rulings of Islam and the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet) or poor people who do not abide by the rulings of Islam and do not fulfill the religious obligations?
A poor person who abides by the rulings of Islam has more right to Zakah money to help him cover marriage expenses. As for poor people who do not abide by the rulings of Islam, they should not be given Zakah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
