Ruling 1950

If a person gives something to a poor person with the intention of zakat, it is not necessary for him to tell him it is zakat. In fact, if the poor person is ashamed by taking zakat, it is recommended (mustaḥabb) that he gives it to him with the intention of zakat but without disclosing to him that it is zakat.
