Etisalat and Zakat Fund have signed an agreement to facilitate Zakat payment through Etisalat’s advanced Payment Machines in the country.

The agreement was signed at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK in the presence of Jamal al Nuaimi, Etisalat’s General Manager for Abu Dhabi Region, and Abdullah bin Aqeeda
Al Muhairi, Secretary-General of Zakat Fund.

The service allows people who wish to pay their Zakat to do so through Etisalat’s Payment machines with amounts of AED50, with increments of AED10, up to AED20,000.  Under the agreement, both Etisalat and the Zakat Fund will enhance their systems to ensure the smooth launch and operation of the service, as well as provide a secure and safe data transfer environment for customers.

Al Nuaimi says: “Etisalat has undertaken this initiative as part of its responsibility to extend support to individuals and various communities of the UAE. It reflects Etisalat’s commitment to partake in humanitarian activities such as partnering with Zakat Fund to provide new, digitised and reliable payment channels for their clients.

Al Muhairi says: “I am very happy with the new service from Etisalat that will facilitate the payment of Zakat duty, which is considered as one of the Islamic cornerstones enriching the brotherhood and humanitarian connection in the community. The Zakat Fund endeavours to collaborate with corporations such as Etisalat.”
