Masjid Al-Falah USJ 9 goes Digital with Boost and RHB Islamic

Masjid Al-Falah USJ 9 is the first mosque to start going digital with accepting donations under RHB’s Kempen SyuQR, an initiative to bring a digital lifestyle to the concept of ‘Giving’ and/or ‘Sadaqah’, through Boost, a homegrown e-wallet app operated by Axiata Digital.

Datuk Adissadikin Ali, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, RHB Islamic Bank Berhad says, “This is RHB Islamic’s first collaborative effort with Axiata Digital to start digital sadaqah (donation) in conjunction with Ramadhan. RHB Islamic is honoured to be a partner in this effort to reach out to the underprivileged by encouraging Muslims to make digital donations towards Kempen SyuQR.”

Boost provides a platform where donations are made via the simple step of scanning the QR code displayed at the mosque. All donations will then be transferred directly to Masjid Al-Falah’s RHB Bank account avoiding the risk of loose cash and theft.

Christopher Tiffin, CEO of Boost says, “When we stepped into this collaboration with RHB Islamic, we had one goal – to make it easier for users to give back to and share their generosity with the society. More importantly, these contributions are done via a social institution.”

Boost and RHB Islamic’s new digital and cashless initiative at Masjid Al-Falah is inline with Bank Negara’s Financial Sector Blueprint and is a contribution towards the country’s goal of becoming a cashless nation by 2050.
