Question# 13-31: Do we have to pay the Zakah in the country where we live or do we have to send it to our country for our family to pay it in our behalf?

Answer:

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful and Most Kind,

 

The person should pay it wherever it would be more beneficial for the people who are recipients of As-Zakah. If it would be equally beneficial, then he should give it in the land where he is in.

 

Allah knows best
