Not giving zakaat to Sayyids

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Why is it zakat is not given to syeds? Then how are they going to benefit? Are they elligible only for sadaqa. If so why?


A: The Shari`ah has decided this.

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

( لا ) يصرف … ( و ) لا إلى ( بني هاشم ) إلا من أبطل النص قرابته وهم بنو لهب فتحل لمن أسلم منهم كما تحل لبني المطلب ثم ظاهر المذهب إطلاق المنع وقول العيني والهاشمي يجوز له دفع زكاته لمثله صوابه لا يجوز نهر… ( ولا ) تدفع ( إلى ذمي ) لحديث معاذ (الدر المختار 2/344-350 )
