Zakat by Giro is a new mode for Zakat payment. It is an advanced monthly payment for your annual Zakat contribution, allowing you to plan your Zakat on Savings, Business, Gold and Long-term Assets such as in CPF Ordinary Account, Investments, Shares and Insurance.


The Fatwa Committee has issued the permissibility of Zakat payment by Giro.

It is based on the concept of wakalah, an agent i.e., a bank deducting on behalf of Zakat payer based on the instructed Zakat amount. The Zakat payer must be of sound mind with sufficient bank balance for deduction.

This advance payment does not contradict with the concept of haul (period) as Zakat can be made in advance.

A Hadith as narrated by Abu Daud, Tarmizi and Ibnu Majah: “Sayidina Abbas r.a once asked the Messenger of Allah pbuh on the possibility of paying Zakat before its haul (time of obligation) and the Messenger of Allah pbuh acknowledged it.
