Topic: How should Zakah be handled?

I need directions from the Students of Knowledge or anyone with a relevant fatwah from Scholars regarding this issue.

Do I give my Zakah in cash or the amount in food and clothes.

For instance can my wife give her Zakah to her sister in cash, knowing that she will buy a stove or a fridge, or should we give it in food.

Also, is it permissible to give Zakah to ones brother or sister?
