The contribution was received by Selangor Zakat Board (LZS) Chief Executive Officer, Hussin Mohd Ali in the Mesra Aidilfitri Ceremony at Dewan Yayasan Ar Raha.

The programme is an initiative for corporations that pay RM50,000 and above for zakat.

Through ‘Kasihku Zakat Selangor’, the company can apply to redistribute 3/8 or 37.5 percent of the total zakat it contributes for the current year, to be distributed to asnaf (eligible zakat recipients) in the poor and fisabilillah categories, who are registered with Zakat Selangor.

The zakat money is distributed based on four main packages which are, education, capital, medical and social welfare.

Besides being a platform for zakat contributors to help asnaf in a closer way, ‘Kasihku Zakat Selangor’ is also a platform for corporates to raise their contributions through the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) allocation.

In the ceremony, LZS also received business zakat from Angkatan Koperasi Kebangsaan Malaysia Berhad (ANGKASA) amounting to RM152,360.38, given by Angkasa Selangor Communications Committee Chairman, Dato’ Alias Hamzah.

In addition, Felda Global Ventures Berhad (FGV) also contributed RM112,628 in business zakat, given by its Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Khairil Anuar Aziz.

LZS also presented certificates of appreciation to members of the media and bloggers for their commitment and cooperation in spreading the message on zakat and supporting LZS in helping asnaf in Selangor.
