Paying transfer charges with Zakaat funds

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by



Mufti Sahab,

In a case where I am transferring a Zakaat sum to another country, can the transfer charge be paid from the Zakaat money?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is not permissible to pay the transfer charges accrued on the Zakaah account with the Zakaah funds. This will deduct the Zakaat amount.

Lillah funds may be used to pay for such charges. [1]


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
