The Zakat Fund Department at the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs has confirmed the continuation of the remote work policy regarding collection and spending during the holy month of Ramadan, in line with the precautionary measures taken by the State to curb the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), and to preserve the Zakat payers and employees, until the current crisis resulting from the spread of this pandemic is over.
"The Zakat should to be paid at the time without stipulating that it be paid during Ramadan or in other months," said Jassim bin Mohammad Al-Kubaisi, director of the Zakat Fund Department.
He pointed out that it is permissible to expedite its payment before its date, noting that the Fatwa Committee of the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs issued a fatwa permitting accelerating the payment of Zakat due to the circumstances of the pandemic that currently affects the world and that contributed to ending the work or deduction of salaries of a large group of people whose work were disrupted due to the domestic isolation imposed by the current conditions.
The Zakat Fund management at the beginning of April this year called on the Zakat payers to submit their Zakat to the Fund by depositing it in the ATMs of the Qatar Islamic Bank or Al Rayan Bank, where the Zakat payer can deal with the option of paying zakat in favor of the Zakat Fund, where the Zakat amount will be transferred to the Fund account in the bank directly .
Zakat can also be deposited through personal account of the Zakat payer via the mobile banking application or the Internet banking, where the transfer will be made directly to the Zakat Fund account, in addition to the possibility of depositing Zakat through a government website.
The Zakat Fund also announced that Zakat payers could provide their zakat through the fast collector that works around the clock. (QNA)
