Dr. Monzer Kahf, a prominent economist and counselor states: “Zakah of Muslims should be paid to Muslims. Only when a government collects Zakah and it has surplus over and above the need of Muslims, it can give from Zakah to non-Muslims. In today’s world, the needs of Muslims are tremendous and no amount of Zakah would satisfy these needs. It is good to help our relatives regardless of religion, Even Safiyyah, May Allah be pleased with her, the wife of the Prophet, pbuh, helped her non-Muslim relatives, but of course not from Zakah bit as a Sadaqah.
