Call for adherence to Zakat duties

Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Pengiran Dato Seri Paduka Haji Bahrom bin Pengiran Haji Bahar has called on the local Muslim community to be mindful of the obligation to pay Zakat (religious tithe).

“It is a Fardhu Ain (obligatory act) commitment which must be fulfilled and not to be taken lightly,” he said yesterday, in his capacity as Vice-President of the Brunei Islamic Religious Council (MUIB), during a presentation of letters to appointed Amils at the Duli Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Damit Mosque in Mukim Kilanas.
