Before giving zakat to someone, is it necessary to ask him, are you eligible to take zakat or not? 


It is not necessary to ask ” are you eligible to take Zakat or not? ” If by looking the apparent condition he seems eligible, like, he living in hard/tough conditions, or for example he is sitting to take Zakat with the needy/poor people or he himself claiming I’m the eligible and your predominant assumption is also that he is eligible, you can give them, there is no need for further inquiry. And about whom you are not sure you should think carefully before giving it to him. If by looking at the external circumstances you feel that he is deserved then give it otherwise not.
