Abstract

The objective of the research is to compare the incentive zakat agency mechanism between Indonesia and Malaysia. In Indonesia, private institutions are permitted to collect zakat and have the agency to support zakat collection, while in Malaysia only state institution collects zakat. To enhance zakat fund collectability, they need agencies located in specific institutions. However, both countries share a similar mechanism of incentive zakat agency allocation. The method of the research is based on a qualitative study. Some respondents are questioned and interviewed on a specific topic of incentive zakat agency mechanism. The result shows that the agency mechanism in private zakat institutions in Indonesia is more flexible than Malaysia. The agency is authorized to get zakat allocation to be disbursed to surrounding zakat recipients and develop the allocation report. On the other hand, a zakat rebate can be a supporting factor for Muslims to pay zakat more in Malaysia than in Indonesia. This is the first study which compare the incentive zakat agency mechanism between Indonesia and Malaysia. Most of previous research does not investigate and compare the zakat incentive.

Abstract

The development of technology has created problems regarding challenges and opportunities in utilizing knowledge obtained by humans from various experiences. Experience-based knowledge has been seen as a special advantage for individuals and Islam has a unique way to explain this aspect. This paper aimed to develop an experience-based knowledge model from an Islamic perspective. This study used a qualitative approach based on literature reviews sourced from Al-Qur’an, Al-Hadith, and relevant previous kinds of literature. This study is expected to provide contributions to the development of theories related to experience-based knowledge from an Islamic perspective.

This experience-based knowledge helped individuals improve their abilities and were disseminated to the other individuals for Allah’s blessings and achieving the embraced organizational goals and success.
