Q19: Is it permissible to give Zakat al Fitr to the poor sons and grandmothers?

A19: If the boys have come of age and live away independent of their fathers, there is no objection to giving them out of Zakat al Fitr or other kinds of zakat. The same applies to a grandmother if she is independent and supporting her was not incumbent on him. Otherwise, if these are his dependents, it is not right to give zakat to them; for one’s zakat should not be paid to one’s dependents. And Allah knows best.
