f:829 -    The same person giving Zakaat and accepting it
Country : Not mentioned,
Name : Abdul Hayy
Question:     A person gives Zakaat to the poor.  Can that person also accept Zakaat?  If anyone does so, what will be the punishment?
............................................................................
Answer:     Zakaat is Compulsory on the person who has wealth that reaches the prescribed criterion of Zakaat and one year has passed on that wealth.  The person who may receive Zakaat is the person who is poor i.e. on whom Zakaat is not Wajib.

It is not permissible for a rich person to accept Zakaat.

And Allah Most High knows best.
