Hamizul bin Abdul Hamid, Adibah Abdul Wahab

Abstract

Fatwa of zakat is the most important element in driving the growth of zakat collection in Malaysia. In facing the changing times, zakat must also be able to change. Changes in the emergence of new sources of wealth and changes in wealth ownership should be addressed by the fatwa. The study aims to see how far the fatwas on zakat collection issued by the authoritative body in Malaysia are working to meet the needs of times. The state of Selangor as the most advanced state in Malaysia has been used as a subject for the study. The findings show that from 2001 to 2017, a total of 23 fatwas were issued. The fatwa covers various aspects of the issues of zakat collection. In conclusion, fatwa on collection in Selangor has been able to adapt and grow, in line with the needs of times. This good practices could be implemented in other places as well, in order to maximize the collection of zakat for the benefit of asnaf.
