Giving sadaqah to one’s poor sister

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Can I give sadaqah to one of my poor sisters. I have one married sister, she is a heart patient and needs to get medicines every month. Her husband is alive and works but the financial situation is very bad. Her one son is in boarding school and they often find it hard to deposit fees for him.

I decided to give 10% of my earning every month as sadaqah to them, is it permissible?


A: Yes.

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