It is preferable to give Zakat to one’s poor and needy relatives who are
eligible to accept Zakaat. Zakaat money may be given by saying it is a gift.
It is not necessary to state that it is Zakaat money. The relative may use
the Zakaat to fulfil his/her needs including getting her daughter married.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
