The Wife Paying Her Own Zakat al-Fitr?
Can my wife pay zakatul fitr while I am also paying since she can afford and willing to pay?
Wa alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlahi wa barakatuHu,
If a woman pays her own zakat al-fitr, while her husband is capable to pay it, then it suffices. (Rawdat al-Talibin v. 2, p. 155-56)
And Allah knows best.
