Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked, “’I’m employed but my father gives the Zakaatul-Fitr on my behalf every year, am I sinful for not giving it myself from my own wealth?’ He replied, ‘As long as you are happy that your father gives it on your behalf then there is no sin on you even if you have your own income from a wage or elsewhere.’”

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Zakaatul-Fitr is obligatory and like all other obligatory actions each individual person him/herself is being addressed with this order. So you give the Zakaatul-Fitr on your own behalf even if you have a father or brother [who could give it for you] and likewise the wife gives it on her own behalf even if she has a husband, but if the family’s guardian wants to give it on behalf of his family then there is no harm in that. So if there is a father who wants to spend on his son’s behalf and who wants to give the Zakaatul-Fitr for him, there is no harm in that.”
