    Is it permissible to give charity to shia muslims (OP)


    She is so poor and needy. Her husband doesn't support her. she is pregnant and already has four kids. One kid is suffering from a Serious disease. Currently her family is starving badly. she lives in a small rent house and can't pay the rent.
    she was working before but now she can't cz she is pregnant. she is totally helpless. she has sold every possible thing she could for money. she had a 22 year old younger brother who used to help her but he died.
    My kind hearted friend did a lot for her. she gives her money and food. Now that poor woman is totally dependent on her neighbours. I asked two female scholars about giving charity to shia muslims they said it is not permissible to give obligatory zakaat or fitrana .. moreover giving charity (sadqa) to non muslim is not sin but Allah will not like it. Giving charity to poor Muslims is better so neighbours shouldn't help her any more because it will only help her in this temporary world. Conversation was on the phone so they didn't give me any references .
    Now I want answer with proper references. Is there any scholar who can answer me?

    ...put her in touch with Shi'a Muslims in the community.

    ...or a Shi'a mosque.

    Not qualified to answer your question but its an idea anyway.

    If I was in your position, I would be torn. I am not a fan of Shia at all. Look at what they are doing to innocent civilian Sunni Muslims in Syria. But it's your call at the end of the day and if she is genuinely destitute, I don't think there would be anything wrong aiding her as long as it is not obligatory Zakat.


    Asalamu 3alaykom,

    Brother there is so much wrong with your comment. Last I checked, the five PILLARS and foundation of Islam and being a muslim is believing in Allah SWT and His messenger, praying, fasting, zakat and hajjul bayt (to whom ever can). Shia muslims do all these things and are, therefore, muslims just like you and me. You are not the Lord of this universe to dictate and judge who is a muslim and who isn't. As for the syria comment, please understand the difference between religion and politics. Mixing the two together and sterotyping and judging has caused corruption in the middle east and hatred and separation between muslims. No wonder the prophet cried because of the future of his Ummah. Please as my brother in Islam, I am saying this for your sake and the sake of every muslim out there, we are all one. There is no seperation in Islam. May Allah guide us all to the straight path.

    Re: Is it permissible to give charity to shia muslims

    Allah knows who created these sub sections in Muslims saying Shia, Sunni, Salafi and what other non-sense.
    I read Quran a lot and I couldn't find these words anywhere, neither in Hadith.
    Anyone who read Kalima by heart is a Muslim and it is a duty of a Muslim to help other Muslims.
    Everyone should definitely help that poor women, whether its money or foods or basic needs after all she is a Muslim.
    Help a fellow Muslim and some day that person will help you, if that person doesn't help you then Allah will help you.

    If you are looking for who you can give zakar then here is the full details on that.
