Giving Zakaah to one’s mother

Question: Is it allowed for a person to give his Zakaah to his own mother?

Response: A Muslim may not give his Zakaah to his parents or to his children. But, in fact, it is obligatory upon him to spend on their behalf from his own wealth if they are in need of it and he has the ability to spend on their behalf.
