Abstract

The management of zakat, infaq and alms funds has not been optimal, due to the collection and distribution constraints. This article aims to identify the management of zakat, infaq, and alms based on empowerment of pesantren (Islamic Boarding School). The method used is a qualitative approach. Primary data source through interviews, while secondary data through literature search. The data analysis technique used a descriptive approach. The results show that the collection is obtained through zakat fitrah, zakat maal, infaq boxes and alms, and funds from the management's business. Meanwhile, the allocation is through the Santri Mulia Scholarship, Mulia Mandiri Economics, and Insan Sehat Mulia. The allocation focuses on four sectors, such as education, health, socio-religious and economic programs. Fund management constraints include low public awareness, lack of socialization, rejection from muzakki, lack of human resources, and criminal practices. Strategies for improving management through outreach and education to the community.
