Giving a large sum of zakaat money to a single person

Q: I have a question about zakah. Can someone donate £100,000 (British) of zakah to a single person who is eligible?

A: Yes. Though it is makrooh to give him such a huge amount that will make him the owner of nisaab.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
