FAQ


What do I need to do if I have not registered for zakat?

Don’t worry, when you opt to the Zakat Deduction Programme, you will automatically be registered for zakat.

If you want to contribute zakat on your earnings from other sources (e.g. gold, silver, business income), please visit your nearest state zakat agency office.

My account is registered in Kuantan (Pahang) but I drive in Kuala Lumpur. Where will my contributions be directed to?

You’re encouraged to make zakat contributions to the zakat agency in the city where you work. However, if your registered Grab city is Pahang, your zakat contribution will be directed to Pusat Kutipan Zakat Pahang (PKZP).

If you wish to change it to Pusat Pungutan Zakat MAIWP (PPZ), you need to fill up this form.

I am currently based outside of the cities listed but I would like to contribute for zakat. What should I do?

You can visit your nearest zakat agency office to contribute. Don’t worry, we’re currently looking into extending this programme to other cities too. Stay tuned!

What should I do if I’ve already been contributing to a participating agency?

If your zakat contributions have been made under your new IC number, your contributions on Grab earnings will be recorded in the same account.

If your zakat contributions have been made under another ID (eg: old IC number, Police ID), provide us with the details in the opt-in form to ensure the zakat contributions are accumulated into the same account.

Can I opt out from this programme?

Yes, you can opt out anytime by filling the form here but please note that the current month’s contribution will still be carried out.

Example: If you opt out on 16 March 2020, we will still deduct 2.5% of your March’s net earnings in April 2020. Deduction for zakat contributions will only stop in May 2020.

How do I find out my zakat contribution amount so far?

Depending on the agency, you can find out the amount by registering an account or login to an existing one, on the following website:
