Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Hello everyone I have a question there are a group of poor people who make a masjid but the roof is not complete because of money issues, and they asked around for money so can i give them money including zakat and fitrana? Thank you so much brothers and sisters may everyone be successful this ramadan, ameen.

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Zakah has to be spent on specific people. Qur'an mentions them (poor, needy, zakah collectors, to bring hearts to Islam, to free captives, for those in debt, for the cause of Allah e.g mujahideen, and for the stranded traveler - read Qur'an 9:60).

Zakah money being given to people to make a roof is not one of the categories. So give your zakah expenditures instead to one of the people who fit those categories. Plenty of poor and needy Muslims who are in true need of it.
