The total zakat collection for 2013 exceeded RM2.2 billion, an increase from the year before, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom as reported by Rakyatpost.

He said that according to data tabulated by the Department of Awqaf, Zakat and Haj (Jawhar), the total collection for all 14 states in 2012 was RM1.9 billion.

However, he felt that this was still low, compared to the number of eligible payers and that it was insufficient to cover the needs of all zakat receivers as their number was increasing.

“Although the amount looks rather big, the total number of receivers is much more than the funds can provide,” he told reporters after launching the Natonal Zakat Month (BZK) 2014 here today.

Jamil Khir said that on this matter, the state Islamic councils should carry out innovative approaches and play a proactive role to improve zakat management.
