KUALA LUMPUR, June 21 (Bernama) — Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd has handed over RM230,000 in business tithe (zakat) for the 2019 financial year to the Sabah Islamic Religious Council (MUIS)

Additionally, the bank had also donated a multipurpose van worth RM168,000 to the Sabah Yayasan Dakwah Islamiah Malaysia and RM40,000 in zakat contribution to the Universiti Malaysia Sabah’s student welfare fund.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

In a statement today, Bank Islam’s head of Shariah division, Saiful Anuar Hambali said in 2019, the bank had distributed close to RM950,000 in zakat wakalah for the hardcore poor in Sabah.
