As part of our mission to be the everyday app for all, we have partnered with Pusat Pungutan Zakat MAIWP (PPZ), Lembaga Zakat Selangor (LZS) Pusat Kutipan Zakat Pahang (PKZP), and Majlis Agama Islam Kelantan (MAIK) to make zakat contribution easier for our Muslim driver-partners and delivery-partners. 

As such, we are delighted to make it easier for you to contribute zakat on your earnings with Grab. All you have to do is opt-in and your zakat deduction will begin the following month.

How does it work?

It’s mandatory to contribute zakat if the yearly income amount is more than the Nisab Zakat amount.

If it’s less than the Nisab Zakat amount, then it’s optional to contribute.

The zakat nisab rate on income will change monthly or yearly depending on each state. Please refer to the links below for more information:
Pusat Kutipan Zakat Pahang (PKZP)
Lembaga Zakat Selangor (LZS)
Pusat Pungutan Zakat MAIWP (PPZ)

  1. Opt-in by filling up the required details and submitting the form here.
  2. You will be notified if opt-in is successful by the 5th of the next month.
  3. We will deduct 2.5% of your nett earnings from your credit wallet (driver-partner) / cash wallet (delivery-partner) in the following month.

Example: If you opt-in this month (November 2019), your nett earnings in December 2019 will be eligible for zakat contribution, hence it will be deducted in January 2020.
