Culture of Giving and Grateful cultivates character through Ihya Ramadan tradition at Management and Science University (MSU). 

Two-hundred and thirty orphans from twenty-three orphanages and charity homes received Zakat and Duit Raya from Management and Science University (MSU) at the MSU Iftar with Industry Partners and Zakat Contribution to Orphans and Orphanages.

The MSU Zakat is also paid annually to eligible students of the University, along with financial aid sponsored jointly by MSU Foundation and MSU partner Affin Islamic Bank Berhad. Management and Science University (MSU) is an appointed Amil of Lembaga Zakat Selangor and MAIS.

Iftar, Zakat, and Duit Raya (literally, Eid money) are elements traditional to MSU’s Ihya Ramadan. The term Zakat, which is Arabic literally meaning growth in goodness, is referred to in Islamic finance as the obligatory donation of a specific portion from one’s annual wealth to charitable causes. The practice of Zakat by the University, whilst reflecting the MSU commitment to social wellness and economics, nurtures the Giving and Grateful spirit – on campus and in the wider community.
