I am 23 years old. It has been a year since I have been on dialysis. I need to have a liver and kidney transplant otherwise my survival will be uncertain. I need approximately 1 Koror for the transplantation. Can I take Zakat for this? Currently, my expenses are not properly fulfilled from my income.

If beyond one’s personal needs, one does not possess the value of the Nisab (i.e. 52.5 tola of silver), and he is also not a Seyyed (i.e. a descendant of the Holy Prophetﷺ), then in that case he can receive Zakat to the extent needed.
