The study attempts to investigate the tendency of zakat payment among Muslim women who are receiving financial assistance from the microfinance program in Malaysia. For this purpose, the study surveyed respondents who are the participants of Amanah Ikhtiar Malaysia (AIM) program employing convenience sampling in Kelantan dan Perak. The analyses are completed using descriptive statistics, tests of mean differences of dependent samples and logistic regression. The findings of the study show there is a significant difference between income level before and after the respondents joined the scheme. Most importantly, the probability of paying zakat among respondents is not contributed by the income obtained after joining the program. It is found that the tendency of paying zakat is contributed significantly by the small household size and location of respondents living.
