Woman sending her in-laws for umrah with zakaat money

Q: Can a woman spend her zakaat money to send her father-in-law and mother-in-law for umrah without letting them know that she has financed the trip as they want to go from some time but don’t have enough money.

Bismillaah

A: If they are eligible for zakaat they can be financed.

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