Abstract

Social problems, especially poverty, are still issues that need to be addressed seriously. Zakat is one of the solutions that is called for by Islam to eradicate poverty and economic inequality that occurs in the midst of diverse social backgrounds. One of the models of zakat distribution that is effective in solving social problems, especially poverty alleviation, is through productive zakat. Productive zakat is zakat in the form of assets or zakat funds given to mustahiq that are not spent directly on the consumption of certain needs, but are developed and used to help their businesses so that with these efforts they can fulfill their daily needs continuously. Therefore, for this purpose to be realized, productive zakat must be managed and implemented effectively and efficiently. In many countries in the world, in recent years, entrepreneurship / social business is developing, this will be very interesting to find its relationship with the management of productive zakat. The purpose of this paper is to describe the implementation of the concept of productive zakat management in Indonesia as an alternative model of entrepreneurship / social business. The management of productive zakat with an entrepreneurial / social business perspective is expected to be able to solve poverty problems independently and sustainably, as well as to be able to provide improved living conditions for disadvantaged people in Indonesia.
