Can sadaqah, zakah, fitrah be given to poor non-Muslims?

The Details of the Question
What is the decree about supporting poor non-Muslims financially? Are there verses and hadiths regarding the issue?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

As it is known, one of the groups zakah can be given to is “those whose hearts are to be reconciled with Islam". Therefore, if it is permissible to give zakah to some people, it is also permissible to give them sadaqah. Thus, they will warm toward Islam or will be prevented from harming Muslims. However, they should not use this sadaqah against Muslims; they should use it to meet their needs.
