What kind of assistance does Muis offer?
Muis provides financial assistance by disbursing Zakat (tithe) which it collects from the Muslim community.
Zakat is distributed to 8 different types of asnaf (beneficiaries) such as the poor, the needy, those in debt, the student pursuing religious education, among others.
The list of Muis Zakat Financial Assistance Schemes are as follows:
· Monthly Zakat Financial Assistance
Monthly cash assistance for those who are eligible
· Settlement of Debt
Once-off assistance for arrears of basic necessities such as utility bills & service and conservancy charges
· Emergency Assistance
Given in times of crisis or when a mishap occurs such as natural disaster, fire or emergency medical treatment or procedure
· Burial Expenses
Payment of burial expenses incurred upon the death of a Muis Zakat recipient
· Study Grants
Subsidies for Part-time Islamic Education and Full-time Madrasah school fee subsidies, as well as National Exam fees (PSLE/N/O/A levels) for private candidates
· Fidyah Food Vouchers
Vouchers to purchase food items redeemable at Muis-approved Fidyah retailers located island-wide
Muis Zakat financial assistance is complementary to National Assistance Schemes. We highly encourage potential Zakat beneficiaries to explore national financial assistance schemes such as Comcare to ensure that their immediate needs are better met through national support systems. Muis plays a complementary role in providing additional financial support to help their situation.
