Main Article Content

Besse Wediawati Rike Setiawati Agung Gunawan


Research related to optimizing zakat management has been widely discussed, as well as masjid-based objects, but research related to optimizing zakat at masjid focusing on the application of graduation empowerment is still rarely found. This research initiated the concept of graduation empowerment in the Masjid-based zakat Management. Thus, the mustahik around the masjid can be managed systematically so that the graduation process into muzkki can be measured and effective. This article is a conceptual study through a literature review of selected articles that examine best practices both in microfinance and in social funds for the poor. Empowerment of graduations at the Masjid can be done effectively through: 1) The masjid has baitul maal and baitul tamwil (BMT) as divisions that manage the social funds of Masjid worshipers; 2) BMT builds a mustahik and muzakki database as a basis for making maps of community empowerment; 3) BMT designs graduation empowerment for mustahik through holistic intermediation; 4) professional managers; 5) partnerships with technical assistance providers; 6) program and reporting transparency
