Asalaamualaikum Mufti

I calculate my zakaat every year on the 1st of Ramadaan. This year some of my assets are stuck in my business and because business is slow I don’t have sufficient cash to pay my zakaat in one lump sum. can I pay it over the next few months till the next Ramadaan.
My brother is going through difficulties in his business. he does not want to admit it that he is insolvent but I and all our family members know that his liabilities far exceed his assets..we have all recommended that he close his business and sell his house which is fully bonded.can we give him zakaat in spite of him not accepting his condition
Jazakaallah may Allah reward you

Can pay off slowly. Keep record. Tell someone of it.
