Abstract

This paper aims to measure the impact of zakat distribution which was performed by Indonesia National Zakat Board (BAZNAS). As state zakat institution, BAZNAS should have precise measurements related to the impact of the program which has been implemented. The measurement is intended to capture accurately the impact of the program for the prosperous of mutashik that it could use as an evaluation of the program designed by BAZNAS or other zakat institutions. The method used in this study is adopting a CIBEST model that was developed by Beik and Arsyianti (2015). This model is a quadrant model that combines the fulfillment of human needs that is both material and spiritual. The indices in CIBEST are consisting of well-being index, material poverty index, spiritual poverty index, and absolute poverty index. it is found that the positive change from the zakat fund distributed by BAZNAS through the productive-based zakat program is quite effective in improving the welfare index of mustahik households in both material and spiritual aspect
