Question:

Salaam Agha Musawi :Can I spend my sehme saadat money portion on medical expenses of my brother in law (sayed) who is a retired person and needs money to get a liver transplant? He does have somee saving and a house to live but not much to afford the cost of surgery .Your earliest response shall be appreciated.

If he is a poor Sayyed, then he will be entitled to receive and utilise Sahm Sadaat. Poor means : not having enough to meet his needs of food, clothing, housing, treatment etc.
You can give your brother in law from Sahm Sadaat if he does not have enough money for his treatment.
Wassalam
