Deputy Minister for Social Security at the Ministry of Labor and Social Development Dr. Ibrahim Al-Shafiei emphasized the importance of the recent initiative taken by the General Authority of Zakat and Tax (GAZT) on launching a special portal and a mobile app ‘ZAKATI’ (My Almsgiving). Meanwhile, the new service allows individuals to pay their Zakat online, which is in cooperation with the MLSD. Al-Shafiei said the portal will relieve the individuals to fulfill one of the five pillars of Islam as well as enhance strategic partnership between the ministry and the GAZT in order to electronically deliver Zakat to those who are under the social security program in a very easy way and with an advanced technology. The deputy minister for social security stressed the ministry’s support for efforts exerted by the GAZT in developing and enhancing performance through utilizing state-of-the-art technology to serve the beneficiaries under the social security program and deposit Zakat payments into their back accounts directly, which helps improve their living conditions. The ‘ZAKATI project comes within the frame of partnership between the ministry and the GAZT to provide best services as per highest quality standards and cater to the beneficiaries’ needs as it will greatly support the social security program, the MLSD official said.
