Researchers assume that zakat institutions (LAZ) need to take progressive steps by improving a more credible, professional, and transformative digitalization system. One way to achieve this is by optimizing transparency and social media within the digital system. The aim of this research is to determine the influence of transparency and social media on the intention to pay zakat at LAZISMU Pusat. This research is quantitative in nature and employs purposive sampling as the methodology. The research sample consists of 200 respondents. Data collection was done using questionnaires distributed through Google Forms. Data analysis was performed using Partial Least Square-Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) and processed using SmartPLS software. The results of this research indicate that transparency and social media have a positive and significant influence on the intention to pay zakat income at LAZISMU Pusat. Therefore, this study provides managerial implications for zakat institutions that transparency and social media are crucial in encouraging Muslim communities to pay zakat, whether they are in Jabodetabek or outside the Jabodetabek region.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Muhammad Nur Al Fatih Ilham, Ali Idrus, Nurhadi ., Rini Fatma Kartika ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 07 May 2024 09:34:04 +0000 The Influence of the Distribution of ZIS Funds and Government Expenditures on Income Inequality and the Human Development Index in Indonesia from 2018 - 2022 <p>The rise in Indonesia's GDP suggests economic growth, but the unequal distribution of income within communities indicates persisting inequality. This imbalance implies that the development in the region is not equally distributed. Measuring community welfare comprehensively requires socio-economic indicators to capture the whole picture. Thus, investigating community welfare by linking socio-economic indicators is imperative. This study analyzes the direct and indirect impact that ZIS fund distribution and government spending have on income inequality and the Human Development Index (HDI) in Indonesia. Through path analysis, the relationship between ZIS variables, government spending, income inequality, and HDI is examined. The findings reveal that ZIS directly and indirectly affects HDI by increasing income inequality as a mediating factor. Government spending has a negative indirect impact on the Human Development Index due to a positive direct impact on income inequality, as revealed by Path Analysis.</p> Lia Annisa Rohmawati, Erika Amelia, Diamantin Rohadatul Aisy ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 02 May 2024 02:50:57 +0000 Measuring Performance of BAZNAS South Tanggerang Using Balanced Scorecard Method <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">The performance improvement of zakat institutions might be escalate and reach potency of zakat in Indonesia.

New innovations are implemented by zakat management organizations in the process of collecting zakat funds, among other numerous technological advancements. Zakat payment is perceived as being highly simple, practical, and successful thanks to technology. Indonesia has two zakat management organizations: BAZ (Amil Zakat Agency) and (Amil Zakat Institution). Zakat and taxes are contextually the same, but there are differences between the two, namely zakat is promulgated directly by Allah SWT for Muslims, while taxes are regulated by the state for all people in the country. Zakat can play a role in increasing state revenues and fostering community prosperity. In addition, zakat can also foster social care, eliminate economic tensions in society, as a charity activity, and function as working capital for underprivileged people so that they can open businesses, work, and be able to meet their basic needs. But there are still many Muslims who do not understand the importance of paying zakat such as a lack of public trust in zakat management organizations and many Muslims who still do not know how to calculate zakat and who is responsible for distributing it. On the other hand, there are also many factors that influence the intention to pay zakat online, including knowledge, religiosity, convenience, environment, self-awareness. earnings, reputation, trust, use and risk.</span></em></p> Muhammad Ash Shiddiqy ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 06 May 2024 10:30:00 +0000 The Impact Comparison of Consumptive Zakat Distribution and Productive Zakat Empowerment: A Case Study From Baznas South Tangerang <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">The purpose of this study is to determine the differences in the impact of the distribution of consumptive zakat distribution and productive zakat empowerment in Baznas South Tangerang.

The research employed secondary data and was examined using a quantitative technique, specifically employing a panel data regression model. The data for this study was collected from Islamic Commercial Banks that published zakat funds between the years 2011 and 2021. Net Profit Margin (NPM) serves as a proxy for measuring the profitability of Islamic commercial banks. The findings indicate that the model employed in this study, which incorporates the variables of NPM, ROE, and assets, collectively exerts a statistically significant influence on corporate zakat. However, each element has a distinct impact on corporate performance. The findings of the study indicate that both NPM and assets exhibit a statistically significant impact on the zakat contributions made by companies. However, it is observed that the ROE does not have a significant effect on the zakat contributions made by companies. It can be firmly asserted that there is a positive correlation between a corporation's NPM and assets, and the corresponding increase in the amount of corporate zakat.

LAZNAS is an official zakat collection institution certified by the Ministry of Religious Affairs. In this study, researchers conducted a comparative analysis of LAZNAS's financial performance before and during the COVID-19 pandemic using a quantitative descriptive research approach. The data used are secondary data obtained from the financial reports of zakat collection institutions published on their websites for four periods: pre-pandemic (2018-2019) and during the pandemic (2020-2021). Data analysis involved assessing LAZNAS's financial performance based on activity ratios (zakat allocation ratio) and growth ratios (growth of zakat). Subsequently, non-parametric tests, specifically the Wilcoxon sign rank test using STATA 17, were conducted to examine the differences in LAZNAS's financial performance before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The research findings indicate that there is no significant difference in the performance of zakat collection institutions based on activity ratios. However, the performance of zakat collection institutions based on growth ratios shows a significant difference, as evidenced by the results of the growth of zakat calculations.

One of the most pressing concerns is stunting, which refers to the impaired growth and development of children due to chronic malnutrition. According to World Health Organization (WHO), around 30% of Indonesian children under the age of five are stunted. This is a concern, given that stunting has a long-term impact on children's physical and mental development. To answer this concern, the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) Scheme of zakat distribution comes as a potential solution to stunting. This scheme is an innovative model of community social empowerment that has been practiced by many countries in the world. This research uses library research or commonly called literature review study which is based on the description of theories, insights, and other research materials collected from several resources. The finding of this research is that the conditional cash transfer scheme of the distribution of zakat funds is a solution to the problem of stunting in Indonesia, because the distribution of zakat can be done in more targeted and efficient ways. This scheme can also help reduce the risk of misuse of zakat funds by unauthorized recipients. With a certain conditions that have to be met, it will be easier to monitor and evaluate the use of zakat funds.</em></p> Suci Afrilianti Sapitri ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 06 May 2024 06:46:54 +0000 The role of ZAKAT in Promoting Economic Growth with A Balance of "Justice" <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">In Indonesia, where the majority of the population is Muslim, the potential for zakat is huge. The more zakat is spent, the more the national income of the country increases. The higher the national income of a country, the stronger its economic growth. Economic growth leads a country to prosperity and welfare. The benchmark of Zakat as a welfare regulator can indeed be used as a standard guideline in both microeconomic and macroeconomic contexts. Historical facts show that Zakat can increase a country's national income thereby creating wealth. We should emulate the government system of Umar bin Abdul Azis, especially regarding Zakat and taxation. Moreover, modern theories of Islamic economists, such as the so-called multiplier effect of Zakat, have discovered how the Zakat mechanism can actually increase national income which means increased economic growth. The provision of assistance in the form of consumer assistance alone can provide a significant multiplier effect (zakat multiplier). Moreover, since zakat is given in the form of production support such as working capital and revolving capital, its effectiveness is twice that of zakat in the form of consumer support, and the multiplier effect achieved in the economy is certainly greater. In addition, when we calculate Zakat using the macroeconomic approach to national income, we find that Zakat has a positive impact on rice income. </span></em></p> Rohimah Rohimah ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 06 May 2024 03:27:29 +0000 Empowering Zakat to Improve the Quality of Education in Indonesia <p><em>Zakat and education are two elements that are bound together. Zakat is an investment for muzaki because zakat can also be interpreted as purifying or purifying. While education is an investment for future knowledge, zakat is a stimulus for the sustainability of education in Indonesia. This research uses a qualitative approach to library research. Library research is a type of approach that in its level of application is carried out by collecting and using data from various kinds of literature both from books, papers, scientific articles, and so on. In this study, zakat means spending some of the property, given to those entitled to receive it, so that the remaining property becomes clean and the people who get the property become pure in soul and behaviour. There are four types of zakat empowerment, namely: 1) Traditional consumptive, i.e., zakat is distributed to mustahiqq to fulfill the daily needs of the aṣnaf. 2) Creative consumptive, i.e., zakat that is realised in other forms, such as given in the form of school tools, scholarships, hoes, pottery and so on. 3) Traditional productive, where zakat is given in the form of productive goods, such as goats, cows, shaving tools, carpentry tools, sewing machines, and others. Giving in this form can facilitate the work productivity of the poor. 4) Creative productivity, namely zakat is realised in the form of revolving capital, both for social protection capital and to help or increase the capital of small entrepreneurs. The utilisation of zakat funds for the development of education is the right strategy and step. This is because education can provide solutions to poverty in Indonesia. Moreover, soft skills education and other skills can prepare students to directly enter the world of work.</em></p> Mu'allimah Rodhiyana ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 07 May 2024 09:30:53 +0000 Analysis Of Zakat Management Reports Using Baznas Information Management System (SiMBA) <p><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">This research was conducted to compile a Zakat Management Report as a National Data Center, with a statement from the Central BAZNAS to continue to maximize the use of the SiMBA Application in the Zakat Management Report.

Zakat Community Developmentin the Prosperous Sragen Program or in local wisdom at BAZNAS Sragen as Kampung Berkah is an empowerment program for BAZNAS Sragen through the intermediary of the Zakat Collection Unit (UPZ) with the formation of the Berkah Village business group. The results of this study describe the measurement of the Zakat Village Index which refers to five dimensions. Basically each dimension has variables and indicators to be used as calculation parameters. The IDZ value is obtained by multiplying the index on each dimension by the contribution of each weight. Based on the measurement results of the Zakat Village Index, a value of 0.34 is obtained. This shows that the condition of the village of Kampung Berkah is not in a good condition, so it needs to be prioritized to receive zakat funds from the Sragen Sejahtera Program. Whereas,the index value can be said to be good if it has a value ranging from 0.81 to 1.00 so it is not prioritized for assistance.</span></em></p> Nurzidta Okta Rinanda, Rakhmawati ., Meisyaroh Catur Wulandari, Bhimo Rizky Samudro, Mulyanto . ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 07 May 2024 00:00:00 +0000 The Role of Zakat in Achieving SDGs: A Literature Review <p>This research is motivated by the importance of achieving SDGs Sustainable development Goals. this research aims to find out the role of zakat in realizing SDGs Sustainable development in indonesia. the research is descriptive research with a qualitative approach. this research uses library research. by analyzing research articles that are relevant, renewable, and have credibility. data collection techniques in this research use documentation studies. the data collected is then analyzed qualitatively.
