Giving zakaat to someone who is entitled to receive zakaat

Q: If a non zakaatable person is given zakaat can he then take the zakaat and give it to someone who is zakaatable without telling the person
who gave them the zakaat that they are non zakaatable and is going to give the zakaat to someone else?


A: You may do this with the consent of the actual giver.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
