MUSLIMAH WING & COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT UNIT

A social outreach platform for Darul Makmur Mosque to be socially and morally responsible, providing ethical and enriched public programs to bond with, assist and strive for the betterment of our Muslim community in the context of multicultural and multiracial society.

Facing daunting challenges such as poverty, ignorance and injustice, there is a dire need to reflect on the place of the social conscience in Islam in order to seek guidance; the Social Development Department provides the platform and programs for the seekers.

SOCIAL SERVICE UNIT

An integrated program by MUIS, Befrienders and mosques, to assist the financially burdened who are faced with chronic illnesses, disability, low income or unfavourable family circumstances with Zakat and Fidyah.

MUIS grants financial aid to the financially burdened through Mosques. Darul Makmur Mosque is one of the centres assisting to provide the application and disbursement.

Financial Assistance

We assist our community that falls under our Financial Assistance (FA) group and provide subsidised or free religious classes in collaboration with our Dakwah unit. The financial assistance will be debited monthly from MUIS through Zakat monies and the Zakat recipients (also known as FA clients) are encouraged to join us in Mosque events. We also give out Fidyah Food coupons for FA clients and special bundles for them during special occasions like Hari Raya Bundles during Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Befrienders

Befrienders form an important part of this program. They are valuable volunteers who want to make a difference and enrich the lives of our FA clients. They provide a listening ear and companionship to contribute towards a positive social, psycho-emotional and physical well-being of Muis Zakat-receiving individuals.

Providing a relationship of mutual trust to encourage clients to achieve empowerment and self-reliance, Befrienders also assist to facilitate the integration of clients into mainstream society through activities, programmes and community participation. Companionship from the visits of Befrienders assists to prevent loneliness, isolation and boredom among elderly and destitute clients, promoting active and positive ageing.
