Giving zakaat to people who do not possess nisaab

Q: What does "Zakaah can be only given to people that do not possess nisaab" mean?

A: Having less than the nisaab amount means that they possess wealth which is less than the amount required for zakaat to become compulsory upon them.

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