My husband is working and cannot accompany me to Johannesburg to help with the pre-Nikah and Walimah preparations except for a short period of time.

Q. There is a brother at the masjid who is asking me for a R10.000.00 loan so that he can invest in his business and return the money back in 2 weeks. In the past, I had very bad experiences in lending money to our brothers. They take money from you and never pay back and they even stop talking to you. I want to avoid this situation to happen to me again so I decided Not to lend money to anybody again in the future. My question here is:
Can I pay Zakat in advance since my Zakat is due in Ramadan 2022? SO, basically, I will lend the R10.000.00 with the intention of Zakat but at the same time I want to test the sincerity of the brother. If after 2 weeks, he returns the money as promised, I will just tell him to keep it. Because, initially, it was for Zakat. The brother is in need and I feel I should help. At the same time, I want to protect myself. Can I do this in Islam?
