Pay zakat to help the state's economy, Selangor cops told


SHAH ALAM: Eligible policemen in Selangor should pay zakat as it will spur the state's economy.

Towards this end, Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed (pic) urged all eligible members of the force to fulfil their zakat obligations.

"I urge all who are Muslim to fulfil this," he told a press conference at state police headquarters here on Tuesday (July 5) after officiating a Lembaga Zakat Selangor (LZS) drive.

"This contribution will also help spur the economy because if we don’t use our money, then it would not do anything for the economy.

"But if we donate to the poor, they will surely use the money to buy goods and that in turn would help our economy," he added.

During the event it was announced that LZS will go to each police district headquarters in the state and open counters to help those in the force pay zakat.
