    Its setup is designed to benefit all age groups, from infants to seniors. Materials available include religious and non-religious books, videos, audio cassettes, VCDs, CDs, and edutainment CD-Roms, with members having the option of borrowing them out or reading/viewing/listening to them within the library using the facilities.

Welfare Services
  • Subsidy Scheme - MIQ provides assistance in the form of subsidising the fees of students participating in any of the MIQ Madrasah programs. The decision on the percentage of the subsidy is made on a case-by-case basis, with consideration given to factors like family background, conduct of student, and current economic trend.
  • Zakat Collection - Since its establishment, MIQ has been appointed by Muis as a Zakat collection centre (also, Zakat Fitrah during Ramadan). The modes of payment available are cash, cheque and Nets.
  • Fidyah Collection & Distribution - Fidyah collection is done all year long with the bulk during the Ramadan season. Close to the end of Ramadan, a formal ceremony to disburse the fidyah collection is held, usually involving members from the MIQ Executive Committee.
  • Other Financial Assistance - MIQ does not have a regular program to assist the needy but as much as possible, it will provide financial assistance to genuine cases. Each application is considered on its own merit.

    Products are competitively priced and the wide variety will appeal to many.
  • Savers' Corner - Common household items are available for jemaah to pick up at irresistable, 'next-to-nothing' prices, courtesy of donation from other members of the jemaah. Tudung, Muslimah dresses, brooches, toys, games, stationery are just some of the stuff available at this "for-the-jemaah-by-the-jemaah" thrift-shop-concept stall.

    Stop by to pick up or donate a thing or two!
  • Additional Stalls - During active periods like before/after Solat Jumaat, wekends, nights with major classes and syarahans, stalls plying a wide range of food and non-food products line the main entrance of the mosque. In Ramadan, the numbers are increased and the hours modified to suit the fasting schedule.

    These stalls are popular with the jemaah and even non-Muslim passersby.
