Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. In our city there is a millionaire who distributes Zakat to the people. He gives each person approximately two thousand Saudi riyals. I receive a monthly pension of 2200 Saudi riyals. I have a one-storey villa which is furnished according to the customs of the land. This is sufficient for me and my family. I have a small modest car. During some parts of the year I will be indebted but I repay my debts with my income from societal funds schemes. This my situation in detail. Am I permitted to receive the Zakat that I have mentioned?

هل أنا مستحق للزكاة؟

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions. Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. As to what follows: In response to your question, we say: Allah the Exalted clarified the recipients of Zakat and said, “ Zakat expenditures are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakat] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler - an obligation [imposed] by Allah . And Allah is Knowing and Wise” [at-Tawbah: 60]. Thus if you are indebted it is permissible for you to take the Zakat to pay your debt which you cannot find the means to repay. If the pension that you receive is not sufficient, then you should take money from Zakat which will enable you to fulfill your requirements, and cover your needs. If you do not owe money and have sufficient income to cover your needs, then it is not permissible for you to take Zakat money, and whatever you take from it is unlawful, and you must return it, because of the hadith that was transmitted by Ahmad and the authors of the Sunan from ‘Ubaydullah ibn ‘Adi ibn al-Khiyaar, that two men came to the Prophet (peace be upon him and  asked him for charity. He looked from one to the other and he saw that they were strong. The Messenger of Allah said: "If you want, I will give you, but no rich man or one who is strong and able to earn has a share of it" [an-Nasai (2598)]. This hadith was graded as authentic by an-Nawawi in Tahthib al-Asma wa al-Lughaat (1/291). Dr. Khalid al-Muslih   14/09/1424
