Since 12th till today (14th September 2011), I was engaged with another discourse on zakat. This time was at De Palma Hotel in Shah Alam, trying to formulate an improvement of zakat disbursement for Selangor Zakat Board (Lembaga Zakat Selangor, LZS). The three day Workshop was one of the last series of discourses, heading towards the end with new ideas on zakat disbursement for specifically three zakat recipients (asnaf): the hardcore poor (fakir), the poor (miskin), and fisabilillah.

Presenting my ideas on the redefinition of the hardcore poor, the poor, and poverty
