Abstract

Digital media is a new platform for virtual communication. As the world evolves, most of the services in organisations, business or activities gradually transferred from the manual to a digital online system. Likewise, zakat as the third pillar which is compulsory for the capable Muslims, where the traditional face to face method of payment with pronunciation declaration by the payer, has also been changed to an online mode. Since 1991 zakat has already been computerised, however, due to the lack of communication and publicity information does not reach the community properly. Moreover, those who do not have the financial means face hardship in getting help due to management problems thus, this research will try to search for the most effective digital media platform that is preferred by the respondents to deal with zakat Kedah state. Accordingly, this research has used survey questions that are to be answered by the lecturers from Universiti Teknologi MARA. The research analysis has found that the official website of zakat Kedah has often been used by the respondents. Correspondingly, infographic is the best answer to help the promotion of zakat in order to reach the audience.
