My wife and I live with our children in Australia. My wife’s family live in South Africa. My 45 y.o. brother-in-law is severely disabled with cerebral palsy needing high level nursing care since birth. He is at the level of a 10 month old child, he is blind, cannot talk and is completely bedridden, his limbs are contracted into fixed positions , he has severe scoliosus(curvature of the spine) and needs high level 24 hr care which was provided by my mother in law almost exclusively. She suddenly passed away 2 months ago. They had been living with my other brother in law who had been maintaining them . My father in law lives a couple of hundred km’s away and is elderly, not well off and has poor health. His capability and temperament restricts his ability to contribute. I have undertaken to provide financially for my brother in law . This is for health costs, the provision of a full time live in carer, and the building of a self contained unit for that person. With good care he is expected to have a normal life expectancy (another 30 years) inshallah.
I was wondering if it is possible to pay for these expenses with my zakaah money?
