A ZAKAT totalling BND19,820 for Asnaf Fakir Miskin was distributed among 47 families at Kampong Lumapas Mosque in the Brunei-Muara District yesterday.

Brunei-Muara District Officer Misle bin Haji Abdul Karim in his capacity as the committee member of Zakat Money Withdrawal handed over the Zakat.

This year, BND1,333,570 has been allocated to 8,435 recipients under the asnaf fakir and miskin across the country. The allocation is derived from the Zakat Fitrah and Zakat Harta for 1439 Hijrah /2018.

Zakat recipients will receive their portion at designated mosques while some will receive through their bank accounts.

It is hoped that the contribution will ease their burden and assist in preparation with the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration.

The recipients were also advised to spend their money prudently for their own benefit.
