Is it permissible for me to pay zakat to my poor sister and needy brothers?

Answer

Yes, it is permissible to pay your zakat to your sister and your brothers who are in need of the money for their livelihood or to set up some means of earning an income. You may not pay your zakat to relatives you are obliged to support such as your children or parents.
And God the Almighty knows best.
