Poverty is a social problem that requires effective and sustainable management. Many parties have made various efforts to overcome poverty. However, the poverty reduction model that was built tended to only use a charitable approach. So that’s only creates a sense of dependence on aid. Poverty reduction requires the involvement of all elements of society, which in a systematic, sustainable, holistic and integrated manner. In line with that, the Islamic economic system offers an alternative in overcoming various socio-economic problems in society, through the instrument of zakah. Although many studies have found that the potential for zakah is very large, the collection and distribution of zakah funds has not been carried out optimally, so that it has not had a significant impact on poverty. Therefore, facing the current development, it is necessary to digitize the proper mustahiq economic empowerment model. The research type used is in the form of field research with a qualitative methods by conducting a deep review of various literatures. The research concludes that the proper digitalization of the mustahiq economic empowerment model can be carried out in a creative productive manner, by distributing a zakah that cannot directly used or spent by the mustahiq. So that the utilization of zakah itself, will have an economic impact on the mustahiq. In order to make this creative productive distribution model runs successfully, it requires coaching and mentoring activities. Coaching and assistance carried out for mustahiq must be adjusted with the era development, through the use of digital technology.
