This study aims to determine the effectiveness of the management of zakat funds in the Badan Amil Zakat Nasional (BAZNAS) Padang Lawas Utara District, North Sumatra Province. This research is a qualitative research using the Analytical Network Process (ANP) approach. ANP is used to find priority problems and solutions in the management of zakat funds, especially at BAZNAS Padang Lawas Utara. Sources of data in this study were obtained through in-depth interviews with academics and practitioners working with zakat. Next, the ANP network is formed using Super decision software and ends with determining the priority of problems and solutions. The results of this study indicate that the management of zakat funds in BAZNAS Padang Lawas Utara has not been managed effectively. Some of the problems found in its management are problems with Human Resources and the Government. The solution to this problem is where the informants agreed that BAZNAS should conduct more intense socialization, be more accountable and transparent in terms of reporting, collaborate with other parties, make efficient use of it, and improve its management. This research is expected to be useful for BAZNAS, especially BAZNAS Padang Lawas Utara as a consideration in making policies related to the management of zakat funds, so that they are more effective.
