This year, we once again worked closely with Lembaga Zakat Selangor (LZS) to open a temporary Zakat counter at the ground floor of Symphony House on 31 July 2013 from 10am-3pm for the convenience of the Muslim staff to fulfil their Zakat al-Fitr. All together, more than 250 staff contributed to Zakat this year. LZS was more than happy to see the number increase from last year, which was about 180 people.
Besides the Zakat Counter, two talks were conducted at noon in the training room, level 2. The first session was held on the 25 July 2013 and the second was held on 31 July 2013. The speaker, Ustaz Mohd Faryzan from Lembaga Zakat Selangor discussed about fulfilling your Zakat and the blessings of Ramadan.
Although the talks discussed serious subjects, the speaker came up with jokes and comical analogies to keep the sessions light-hearted. At the end of the second session, En Hamid, Symphony Executive Director handed out a goodie bag to Ustaz Mohd Faryzan.
To all Muslim staff, there is less than one week to Aidilfitri celebtation. On behalf of Symphony, we wish you Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
