Zakat Expert

Q: Can I give my Zakat to my wife?

A: Ibn Qudamah says there is a consensus among scholars that a husband cannot give Zakat to his wife. The Hanafi and Hanbali school maintain that the Zakat payer will indirectly benefit from his Zakat.

The Maliki and Shafi’i school state that a husband cannot give Zakat to his wife as he must financially maintain her with other funds.

And Allah knows best!
