‘Nagad Islamic’ has included a number of features for the muslim customers, including Zakat calculator and a range of Islamic lifestyle services on its app and website.
From now on, customers will be able to calculate their own zakat using 'Nagad Islamic' without any hassles. Customers will also be able to access all the daily prayer services, including free audio recitation of the Holy Quran, on this platform.
Through ‘Nagad Islamic’ which is being run under its Shariah Supervisory Committee, customers will be able to donate Zakat on a regular basis, calculating the accurate amount of Zakat at their convenience in a hassle-free way, said a press release.
The ‘Nagad Islamic’ Account has been in operation for the last three years, assuring Islamic financial management for the customers. Customers are using this interest-free MFS account to make donations, payments for Hajj tours and travels and Islamic insurance.
Considering the growing customer demand, Zakat Calculator, the latest feature of ‘Nagad Islamic’ will potentially simplify the process of calculating Zakat for the customers.
Users can now easily calculate Zakat from Nagad Islamic website (https://nagadislamic.com.bd). To calculate the amount of Zakat customers must first select the Zakat Calculator option on the ‘Nagad Islamic’ website. The service will also be available on Nagad App soon.
Customers will also be able to pay zakat directly to over 20 Islamic and zakat donation organisations via ‘Islamic Nagad’ if they choose. The calculated amount of Zakat can be sent directly to the merchant numbers of the donation organisation by selecting the ‘Donation’ option from the ‘Nagad Islamic’ app. This will allow customers to carry out all Zakat-related operations from their mobile phones with ease.
In addition, consumers can conveniently access all the services associated with daily prayers by clicking on 'Islamic Life' and 'Ibadat Pratidin' on the website. The features include fasting and prayer schedule, free recitation of Al-Quran and Hadith with audio and Bangla meaning.
