As-Sadaqat (Zakat) are only for the poor and for the needy and for those employed to collect [zakay] and for bringing hearts together [for Islam] and for freeing captives [or slaves] and for those in debt and for the cause of Allah and for the [stranded] traveler – an obligation [imposed] by Allah. And Allah is Knowing and Wise. (9:60)
