SLIM RIVER: The Raja Muda of Perak, Raja Nazrin Shah, has urged the state Islamic administration to play a more active role and assume wider responsibilities to develop the Muslim human capital and their economy. 

“The economic aspect of Muslims should not be confined to merely collecting alms. What is more important is managing the zakat (tithe) collections productively to help develop the Muslims in a meaningful way to the point that the community can really enjoy the benefits,” he said when opening the Slim River Islamic Administration Office here yesterday.
