A: It is permissible.

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

عن عدي بن حاتم قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم ما منكم من رجل إلا سيكلمه ربه يوم القيامة وليس بينه ترجمان فينظر أيمن منه فلا يرى شيئا إلا شيئا قدمه ثم ينظر أشأم منه فلا يرى شيئا إلا شيئا قدمه ثم ينظر تلقاء وجهه فتستقبله النار قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم من استطاع منكم أن يقي وجهه حر النار ولو بشق تمرة فليفعل (ترمذي #2415)

( وإذا تصدق بعشرة ) دراهم ( أو وهبها لفقرين صح ) لأن الهبة للفقير صدقة والصدقة يراد بها وجه الله تعالى وهو واحد (الدر المختار 5/ 698)

أن الصدقة يراد بها وجه الله تعالى وهو واحد والهبة يراد بها وجه الغنى وهما اثنان وقيل هذا هو الصحيح (الهداية 3/ 288)
