 Dear brothers and sisters
Sometimes we heard about natural calamities happen anywhere , or some people suffer any disasters or any unwanted situations happen due to which some people suffer simultaneously then they need some Financial help or any other types of help.
Therefore, may be some of them come with their representatives as they require significant amount of money so their should be a local person who should inform and recommend people for giving charity. So who should that person who recommend people for giving charity,
So let us know about that in the light of authentic teaching of Prophet Muhammadﷺ

Hadith ‏.‏

Mundhir b. Jarir reported on the authority of his father:

(Once) I and some Companions of Prophet (pbuh) were in the company of the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad(ﷺ) in the early hours of the morning, some people came there (who) were barefooted, naked, wearing striped woollen clothes, or cloaks, with their swords hung (around their necks).
(About) Most of them, nay, all of them, belonged to the tribe of Mudar. The colour of the face of the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad ﷺ) underwent a change when he saw them in poverty.
He (Prophet pbuh) then entered (his house) and came out and commanded Bilal (to pronounce Adhan). He (hz Bilal ) pronounced Adhan and Iqima, and he (the Holy Prophet) observed prayer (along with his Companion) and then addressed (them reciting verses of the Glorious Qur’an): ‘”
0 people, fear your Lord (Almighty Allah), Who created you from a single being” to the end of the verse,” Allah (swt) is ever a Watcher over you” ( Qur’an 4:1).
(He then recited) a verse of Sura Hashr (of Glorious Qur’an)
Fear Allah. and let every soul consider that which it sends forth for the morrow and fear Allah” (Quran 59:18).
 (Then the audience (Companions) began to vie with one another in giving charity.)
 Some donated a dinar, others (give ) a dirham, still others (give) clothes, some donated a sa’ of wheat, some a sa’ of dates;
till he [(the Holy Prophet (Muhammadﷺ)] said: (Bring) even if it is half a date.
Then a person from among the Ansar (helpers) came there with a money bag which his hands could scarcely lift; in fact, they could not (lift).
(After that) Then the people followed continuously, till I saw two heaps of eatables and clothes, and I saw the face of the Messenger ( of Allah Muhammad ﷺ) glistening, like gold (on account of joy).
The Allah’s massanger ( Muhammad ﷺ) said: He who sets a good precedent (sunnat) in Islam, there is a reward for him for this (act of goodness) and reward of that also who acted according to it subsequently, without any deduction from their rewards;
and he who sets in Islam an evil precedent (any tradition), there is upon him the burden (sin) of that, and the burden (sin) of him also who acted upon it subsequently, without any deduction from their burden.

 Conclusion 👇

From the above hadith we came to know that if that person is imam (leader of Mosque) it is better , otherwise a political leader can also recommend people, or any other can also do.
In the same way if  any individual come who has his own need the same rule applies on this situation also.
In the time of Prophet Muhammadﷺ there was Islamic system, in Islamic system, a knowledgeable person is a leader in Mosque and he may also a  political leader
