Zakaat for Hand Pump

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Can I use my Zakaat money to fund a hand pump for my late father?

A: When giving Zakaat, a poor Muslim person must be made the owner of that Zakaat money. In using the Zakaat for a pump, no one is the owner and the Zakaat will not be valid. Lillah money should be used for this purpose.
