Giving zakaat to one’s sister

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have given zakaat money six times the nisaab amount to my sister. Can I give her another amount of zakaat after three months similar to the first amount?


A: If she does not have any wealth or she has wealth which is less than the equivalent of nisaab by that time you can support her.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
