KUALA LUMPUR, May 3 -- Bank Muamalat Malaysia Bhd continues to provide the zakat fitrah payment via quick response (QR) code facility this Ramadan to enable Muslims to make such payment while remaining at home under the new normal.
In a statement today, chief executive officer Khairul Kamarudin said the e-zakat initiative through DuitNow QR was a collaboration with five state Islamic councils, namely those in Penang, Sabah, Sarawak, Kelantan and Kedah.
“Through the facility, customers of Bank Muamalat and other banks who are registered with DuitNow QR can fulfil one of the pillars of Islam (paying zakat) through a cashless platform in an easy and quick manner,” he said.
Khairul said the DuitNow QR facility introduced by Payments Network Malaysia Sdn Bhd (PayNet) also allowed interoperability between e-wallets and banks.
“Customers only need to use their mobile phone to scan the Bank Muamalat DuitNow QR on the state zakat website to complete the transaction,” he added.
