Where should Muslims pay zakat? There is no particular place where one should pay zakat. In Islam there is no particular holy place where we should pay zakat.
It is important to know in your local area of any organizations that take zakat money. Usually it is your local masjid that will take the zakat. If you want to give your zakat to the individual personally this is preferable. You do not need to tell them that it is zakat.
Where we give zakat it is not a priority as to when and who takes the zakat.
