As Salaamu Alaykum,
I would like to get some advice regarding Zakaat and who should be the recipient of it. Can it be both Muslims and Non-Muslims?
JazaK Allah Kahir
Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
Only Muslims can be the recipients of Zakaah and it cannot be given to non-Muslims. General, Sadaqah (charity) and help can be given to them but not in the form of Zakaah.
And Allah Knows best
