KANGAR: The zakat fitrah (personal tithe) in Perlis for this year will remain at the rate of RM7 per person, according to the state's Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs).

MAIPs said that the rate was approved by the Raja of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Jamalullail, in line with the decision of the Perlis Fatwa Committee Meeting, based on the price of rice commonly used by the community.

The Raja Muda of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail had launched the tithe rate at the 504 Regiment of the Territorial Army, Bukit Keteri Camp, MAIPs said in a statement.

"In addition to cash payment through MAIPs-appointed Amil (tithe collectors), Muslims wanting to pay zakat fitrah with rice, can produce one Nabawi bushel for each person, which is equivalent to 2.6 kilogrammes (kg)," said Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra, who is also MAIPs president.

Also present at the launch were Menteri Besar Mohd Shukri Ramli and state secretary Datuk Seri Hasnol Zam Zam Ahmad.

Meanwhile, MAIPs chief executive officer, Mohd Nazim Mohd Noor, said that every Muslim in Perlis is obliged to pay personal tithe as prescribed for himself, his wife and children, as well as his dependents.

"Muslims can pay zakat fitrah through appointed Amil statewide or make an online payment via the MAIPs portal at," he said. - Bernama
