How does the Person who lives outside of his country pay Az-Zakah
Question:

There is a man who lives outside of his country, so how does he pay the Zakah of his wealth? Does he send it to his country,does he pay it in the country where he lives or does he give his family the responsibility of paying it on his behalf?
Answer:

He should look at whatever is the most beneficial for the people who are recipients of Az-Zakah. Is it more beneficial for him to pay it to the people in his country or does he send it to another country where there are poor people? If the two situations are equal, then he gives it in the land that he is in.
