Abstract

This study aims to determine the effect of zakat, infaq, and alms received by mustahik on their independence in meeting their economic needs. This study uses data obtained from respondents through questionnaires and a quantitative approach through the component-based or variant-based Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) technique with Partial Least Square (PLS). The results of the study show that: (1) zakat has a positive effect on mustahik's economic independence. This means that the respondent's perception of the zakat received based on the measured indicators will encourage the birth of the respondent's economic independence; (2) infaq and alms have a significant effect on mustahik's economic independence. This means that the respondent's perception of the infaq and alms received based on the measured indicators will encourage the birth of the respondent's economic independence. The government needs to give greater attention to the handling of homeless people, beggars, buskers, and street children. Likewise, BAZ and LAZ need to touch the homeless, beggars, buskers, and street children in distributing zakat, infaq, and alms. Distribution of zakat, infaq, and alms funds should be aimed at empowerment programs/activities that lead to increased productivity of mustahik.
