Can a woman give her zakaah to her husband?

Question

Is it permissible for a woman to give her zakaah to her husband?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

It is permissible for a woman to give her zakaah to her husband, if he is qualified to receive zakaah, because she is not obliged to spend on him and because it was reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) gave permission to the wife of ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with them both) to give her zakaah to her husband ‘Abd-Allaah.

And Allaah knows best.
