What if after the 12-month Giro deductions, I contributed more than the amount that is due for Zakat?
For over-contribution, there are two options.
Option 1: To state the intention (niat) that excess amount will be carried forward for the prepayment of Zakat for the next year.
Option 2: To state the intention (niat) that excess amount will be treated as a voluntary donation or sadaqah. If however you need to request for refund, you can fill in the Application for Refund of Zakat by Giro Form and submit to us by mail.
