Jawatan Kosong Jakim - Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia - JAKIM is the government agency that administers the affairs of Islam in Malaysia.
In 1968, the Malaysian Council of Rulers decided that there was a need for a body that could mobilise the development and progress of Muslims in Malaysia, in line with the country’s status as an Islamic country which was growing in strength as well as fast gaining worldwide recognition. In realising the fact, a secretariat for the National Council of Islamic Affairs of Malaysia was formed to protect the purity of faith and the teachings of Islam. This secretariat was later expanded to become the Religious Division, Prime Minister’s Department which was later upgraded to become the Islamic Affairs Division (BAHEIS).
On 1st January 1997, in line with the country’s steadfast Islamic development and progress, the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) was established by the Government of Malaysia to take over the role of BAHEIS.
The Malaysian Islamic Centre Complex, which stands proud and majestic in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city, has a history which started since the National Mosque.
The National Mosque, which was officially opened in 1965 by the Third Duli Yang Maha Mulia Seri Paduka Baginda Yang Di Pertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Putra Ibni Al-Marhum Syed Hassan Jamalulail, was the foundation for all activities leading to the building of the present Islamic Centre Complex.
The Islamic Affairs Division, Prime Minister’s Department is the new name given to the Religious Division, Prime Minister’s Department.
In the beginning, this division used to be a secretariat in the Prime Minister’s Department. This secretariat was called the Secretariat of the National Council for Islamic Religious Affairs of Malaysia and was formed by the Council of Rulers in 1968.
Its first chairman was the Yang Teramat Mulia Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, the Prime Minister at that time, while its secretary was Dato' Haji Ismail bin Panjang Aris. At first, it was hoped that all the states in Malaysia would enlist. However, during its establishment, two states did not become a member of the National Council for Islamic Religious Affairs of Malaysia. The two states were Kedah and Pahang. To date, the two states have yet to join the National Council for Islamic Religious Affairs of Malaysia.
