Giving Zakah to Sayyed family

Home / Q&A / Giving Zakah to Sayyed family


My great grandparents they claim that they belong to the Prophet’s family, peace be upon him, can our zakah be given to them since they claim to be from his family? They are poor. May Allah reward you with goodness.

Zaynab El-Kateb:

First being a descendant of the Prophet, peace be upon him, has to be proven, it cannot just be claimed. If you are all one family (same grandparents), then you can give them zakah.
