We are just a week away from the much-awaited Hari Raya celebrations, which also means that there are 8 days left for you to fulfil your zakat obligations and menunaikan ibadah this Ramadan.
If you have not made your Zakat Fitrah payment yet, worry not! Up till 3 May, the ‘Zakat’ feature is available on our Boost app for you to conveniently and seamlessly make your obligatory Zakat Fitrah payments online across five Zakat collection bodies*.
1. Lembaga Zakat Selangor (LZS)
2. Lembaga Zakat Negeri Kedah (LZNK)
3. Majlis Ugama Islam Sabah (MUIS)
4. Majlis Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan (MaINS)
5. Pusat Pungutan Zakat- Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (PPZ-MAIWP)
In just five simple steps, you can get your Zakat payments done with Boost for you and your family without needing to physically go to a Zakat collection center:
1. Tap on the ‘Zakat’ tile under ‘Do More’
2. Tap on ‘Add New Zakat Account’ and select the state Zakat body of your choice
3. Then, tap on the + icon on the bottom right of the Zakat provider card and key in your IC number, followed by full name and mobile number
4. Select the correct beras type with its corresponding harta and enter the number of people you are making the Zakat payment for
5. Tap ‘Pay Zakat’, authorise the payment and you’re done!
You will receive a receipt via email that can be used for individual tax rebate purposes. Additionally, in case you were wondering, zakat payments done online, through eWallets like Boost, are considered valid (sah) without ‘Lafaz Akad’*.
As we are all eagerly and enthusiastically preparing for the best ever Raya celebrations after two years, from shopping for baju Raya, to buying ingredients, to cook family recipes, please remember to go cashless and contactless as best as you can. Stay safe and sanitise, always.
