My mother has now been divorced from my father
for more than forty years. She lives with her second husband and is in need of support, and she has children with her current husband. Is it permissible for me to give her the Zakah (obligatory charity) on my wealth or on other types of Zakah?
It is not permissible for you to give the Zakah on your wealth to your mother. However, it is permissible for you to give it to her second husband if he is poor and does not have sufficient money to support himself and his family. (Part No. 10; Page No. 70) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
