Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, the mother and sister through breastfeeding may be given zakaah if they are entitled to zakaah, because the mother and sister through breastfeeding are not people on whom one is obliged to spend, so they may be given zakaah, so long as it is proven that they are entitled to it. End quote. 

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
