Is it permissible to give Zakah (obligatory charity) to one's parents?
It is obligatory upon a son to financially support his poor parents, and to provide them with clothes and shelter from his own wealth. It is not permissible for a Muslim to pay his Zakah to his parents since this is a protection of his wealth. (Part No. 10; Page No. 68) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
