Zakat to be informed or not


Assalamalaikum shaykh,
Should we inform the person whom we are giving zakat that it is the zakat we are giving?


wa `alaykum salam,
It is not mandatory to inform the recipient but it is better to inform him/her. It may be that he/she is not eligible to receive zakat and may reject it.
