KUANTAN: Payment of zakat through salary deduction was the biggest contributor to collection in Pahang as of November, with RM54.1mil by 64,071 payers.

Pahang Regent Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim Alam Shah Ibni Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah said among the other high zakat collections were from business zakat ((RM28.3mil), savings zakat (RM14.4mil) and income zakat (RM10.9mil).

In total, the Pahang Zakat Collection Centre (PKZ) managed to collect RM112.3mil involving 85,326 payers as of last month.

“Muslims are reminded to immediately fulfil their obligation to pay zakat before Dec 31 to obtain income tax rebate facilities.

“All Pahang PKZ counters will also be open on Saturday and Sunday for the last two weeks of this year.

“Apart from payment in cash, payers can also make payments using an automatic teller machine (ATM) card or debit card in addition to other online applications provided, ” he said in a media statement here.

He also said that all Pahang PKZs were responsible for receiving cash endowment payments starting this month, with endowments as low as RM5, which could also be transacted online at the portal ewakaf.muip.gov.my.

Tengku Hassanal, who is also the Pahang Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MUIP) president, consented to receiving zakat payments from seven institutions and corporate companies amounting to RM6.78mil at Istana Abdulaziz here. — Bernama
