McDonald’s Malaysia is not only a restaurant company that serves good food, but an organisation that gives back to the community as well.
As a fully Muslim-owned company, McDonald’s Malaysia is always committed in fulfilling its responsibilities to contribute their Annual Corporate Zakat. On 17 May 2022, McDonald’s Malaysia organized a Corporate Zakat Presentation Ceremony in Melaka, to hand over their corporate zakat of RM180,000 for the year 2022 to Zakat Melaka – Majlis Agama Islam Melaka (MAIM).
The Corporate Zakat Presentation Ceremony was attended by YBhg. Datuk Haji Ibrahim bin Haji Fadzil, Chief Executive Officer, Zakat Melaka, Pn. Shakina binti Mohd Said, Head of Zakat, Majlis Agama Islam Melaka, Pn. Arina Saffura binti Alim, Head of Human Development, Majlis Agama Islam Melaka, and En. Azhar Darbi, Vice President of Human Resources and Chairman of the Internal Halal Committee, McDonald’s Malaysia
To date, Melaka is the 6th state to receive corporate zakat from McDonald’s Malaysia this year. Up until 2022, McDonald’s Malaysia has contributed corporate zakat amounting to RM9.85 million for states throughout Malaysia since they started paying their corporate zakat back in 2017.
At the ceremony, McDonald’s Malaysia also organized a memorable Hari Raya celebration to spread the festive cheer to underprivileged children residing at Kompleks Anak Yatim Fatimah Al-Zaharah. The children were given duit Raya and indulged in Hari Raya goodies, inspiring positive vibes and spreading smiles among the children.
In line with their corporate vision, McDonald’s Malaysia has always instilled positive values by giving back to the communities where it operates across the country and is committed to fulfilling its responsibility to contribute Corporate Zakat as prescribed by Islamic teachings for many more years to come.
