Video: Where should Zakat be distributed to? – Imam Zaid Shakir

Is it permissible to give Zakat of one land to the people of another land?
Muslims in the West: where should my Zakat go?
Yes, we live in the West, but there is still poverty here and the number of people eligible to receive Zakat in the UK is increasing at a massive rate. At the same time, situations of extreme poverty and disaster relief around the world also deserve the British Muslim community's support.
Therefore it is important to find the balance between eligible relatives home and abroad, international crises and UK/local causes insha'Allah.
