Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za
Q: Can one give zakaat to a poor person equal to the amount of nisaab?


A:It is makrooh to give a poor person zakaat equal to the amount of nisaab. However, if the poor person has debts or has a big family and after receiving the zakaat he will not be a sahib nisaab then it will not be makrooh.
