Q: My youger brother who is jobless and they have newborn baby. Currently, he has no income. Can we give him bulk of zakaat so he can fulfill the needs of his wife and baby? Few months ago we gave him zakaat for the amount equivalent to US$1000 which he deposited in his bank account. Can we give me more money from zakaat so he can manage the needs of his wife and baby?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
