The formation of the Lembaga Zakat Selangor (MAIS) 20 years ago,
makes LZS to be an institution that continues to be committed to managing and utilizing
the potential of zakat collection.
Today, LZS (MAIS) stands as a zakat institution with insight and practices the best in
generating and promoting excellence not only for asnaf
but also the ummah as a whole.
The formation of the Lembaga Zakat Selangor (LZS) 20 years ago is synonymous with the management of Zakat in the state of Selangor. As an entrusted Zakat institution, LZS (MAIS) is continually committed in managing and utilizing the potentials of the collection of Zakat, as well as to ensure that the distribution of Zakat be done efficiently and effectively in accordance to Syariah laws.
With the motto ‘Leading Change’ (Meneraju Perubahan), LZS (MAIS) continually strives to provide the best services to its customers consisting of Zakat contributors as well as Zakat recipients. With the assistance of more than 400 staff in 25 branches in the state of Selangor, LZS (MAIS) continues to be entrusted as an amil (those who are entrusted in the matters of zakat) while upholding the values of integrity, honesty and transparency while performing its duties in the management of Zakat.
In 2 decades since its formation, LZS (MAIS) has improved its excellence as a respectable and revered Zakat institution, by constantly promoting its work in da’wah to ensure that more people are obligated to perform one of the pillars of Islam. Besides that, the distribution of zakat is greatly improved to the eight groups that are qualified to receive Zakat aid (asnaf) as stipulated in the Qur’an, through its five asnaf development programmes which consist of Social Development, Educational, Economic, Humanitarian, and Islamic Institution Development programmes.
Today, LZS (MAIS) stands proud in its role as a visionary Zakat institution and applies the best management practices in generating and uplifting excellence not only to asnaf groups but also including the general population in principle.
Many great entrepreneurs are born, children from asnaf groups who achieve excellent results in their education are able to pursue their studies, families are able to have a more secure and comfortable environment, and medical expenses can also be reduced and alleviated greatly.
Indeed, LZS (MAIS) will continually strive to hold and fulfill its trust as best as possible in order for this pillar of Islam to be dignified and upheld.
