Q: I have relatives in UK who are in debt. But at the same time they are also splashing out on holidays etc, instead of paying off their debt. Should i still give them my Zakat? Jazakumullah Khair

A: In theory, a person in debt can receive Zakat. You have the ultimate discretion of choosing where your Zakat goes.

And Allah knows best!
