Can Zakat be utilized for hospital equipment where both the poor and rich are treated? The hospital is a welfare hospital.
الجواب حامدا و مصلیا
Without Tamleek Shar’ee, it is not correct to give the money of Zakat to hospitals. This should be avoided. However, after Tamleek Shar’ee (i.e. someone eligible of receiving Zakat uses the Zakat money given to him for the necessities of the hospital), it will be correct.
