Paying off Other People’s Debt with Zakat
Assalamu’alaikum. Sir, let me ask: Say, A was indebted to B, since he was poor, A was unable to pay his debt. Then there was C who helped to pay A’s debt to B, but the money he paid was from his zakat. Thus, C directly paid his zakat obligation to B, intending to pay off A’s debt. Is such act permissible? Or should C give the money to A first?
