Can we give zakat to tableeghi jamats brother who are wealthy ?

Question:

Can we give zakat to tableeghi jamats who are wealthy (i.e. they possess the nisab amount which is beyond their needs)? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

No, it is not permissible to give zakat to the wealthy regardless of them being part of the tableeghi jamat. [1] Nevertheless, if the tableeghi brother is entitled to receive zakat, e.g. he is poor, then you may give him your zakat money. For more details regarding those who are entitled to receive zakat, kindly refer to the following link:
