Abstract: The utilisation of technology has been widely practiced for the system of payment. It is now being utilised for the payment of zakat. Therefore, this research aims to gauge the awareness of an e-zakat online system in the Selangor and also to examine the extent of utilisation of an online e-zakat among individual zakat payers using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model. Although the model was reviewed by the prominent researchers, but, it still has a limited resource to explore the usefulness of using e-zakat online system. The primary data collection was carried out through a questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was distributed to the academicians in the Klang Valley. The results provide an intellectual challenge and contribute to knowledge in this area of user perceptions of IT utilisation and provide indispensable evidence of the necessity of improving the awareness and utilization of e-zakat online.
