  1. Zakat Q/A's

    Is it permissible to give Zakah to someone in the form of food vouchers instead of cash? January 21, 2013 Q: Is it permissible to give Zakah to someone in the form of food vouchers instead of cash? الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومنه الصدق والصواب A: It is permissible to give food vouchers instead of cash. However, the Zakah will only be discharged once the recipient receives the food. A food voucher is an assignment of debt against the issuer of the food voucher (food provider) and is not wealth in itself. Thus, the receipt of the food voucher by the recipient does not discharge the obligation of Zakah. Upon receipt of the food the recipient possesses the food on behalf of the transferor (i.e., person giving the voucher) and then for him/herself. ففى رد المحتار: وفى صورتين لا يجوز: الأولى أداء الدين عن العين كجعله ما فى ذمة مديونه زكاة لماله الحاضر ، بخلاف ما إذا أمر فقيرا بقبض دين له على آخر عن زكاة عين عنده فإنه يجوز لأنه عند قبض الفقير يصير عينا فكان عينا عن عين. (كتاب الزكاة ، 2/270-271) وفيه: (قوله: ولا يجوز من غيره) أى لا يجوز تمليك الدين من غير من عليه الدين ، إلا إذا سلطه عليه ، واستثنى فى الأشباه من ذلك ثلاث صور. الأولى: إذا سلطه على قبضه ، فيكون وكيلا قابضا للمولى ثم لنفسه ، الثانية: الحوالة ،الثالثة: الوصية. (كتاب البيوع ، باب المرابحة والتولية ، فصل فى التصرف فى المبيع والثمن قبل القبض والزيادة ، 5/152-153) And Allah knows best.
