TITHE AMIL FOUNDATION “BERSAMA”
TASTE THE IMPACTS OF GIVING !
THE WAY TO BE REAL PROUD OF YOURSELF
WHEN YOU MEET ALLAH.
The translation of Allah’s decree in the surah of Adz-dzariyah 19; ‘And at their property, there is a part for the poor who ask for and the poor who don’t get ….’ (Qs. Adz-dzariyah;19)
‘Zakat’ is the word from Arabic which has meaning tithe or religion tax or giving a part of property to the certain people who need help. It is obligation from Allah according to the role of Islam religion. The person who gives ‘zakat’ or tithe or religion tax is called ‘muzakki’ and the person who gets religion tax is ‘mustahiq’ . Both of Mustahiq and ‘muzakki’ are the words which can’t be separated each other. ‘Muzakki’ is the person who has property more than what they need to fulfill his daily need so he gives a part of his property to the ‘mustahiq’. Because of his property is enough to suffice his daily need he delivers or gives the charity or giving religion tax to the people who need help ‘mustahiq’. Meanwhile ‘mustahiq’ is a person who has right to get a help because of his poverty. We can conclude that ‘muzakki’ is a person who is responsible to the poverty ‘mustahiq’. And also a mustahiq is a person who has right to get a help (property) from ‘muzakki’. There are two kinds of zakat in Islam religion; namely ‘zakat fitrah’ and ‘zakat mall’.
zakat fitrah’ is applied by Moslem people only in Ramadhan month. It is regulation and obligation to every Muslim or Islam people to give ‘zakat fitrah’ according to Islam religion. One of the main purposes of ‘zakat fitrah’ is to give or to share happiness, peaceful to poor people or well known in Islam term ‘dhu’afa’. It is hoped that they can celebrate the ‘Idul Fitri’ happily like others whose higher standard in economic satus. They can overcome the daily problem at least at few day of The ‘lebaran’ because they have enough food, money, and even other daily needs. According to Islam religion The portion of the ‘zakat fitrah’ according to Islam Religion is 3,5 litters of basic food / person or it can be replaced by money. For example in Indonesia the price of rice is Rp.5.000/litter. So the minimum standard for giving ‘zakat fitrah’ is Rp.5.000 X 3.5 = Rp.17.500.
‘Zakat mall’ is zakat which is given anytime. The regulation according to Islam religion in general is based on the ‘nishab’ and ‘haul’. ‘Nishab’ is the minimum standard of welfare which is owned by someone. It could be from trader, businessman, worker, and many other professions. Meanwhile ‘nishab’ is the duration of time (one year) of possessing of the welfare or income. So it can be stated that ’haul’ and ‘nishab’ can not be separated because someone has no obligation to give ‘zakat mall’ if he has welfare less than 1 year or under the amount of standard minimum of that welfare or income itself. For example ‘haul’ of income or salary is 8,5 gram gold. If someone has a salary in a year more than the price of 8,5 gram gold he has obligation to give ‘zakat mall’. Actually there are regulations of account (‘nishab’) in every welfare whose obligation to spend ‘zakat mall’. Salary = 8,5 gram gold Basic food = 5% with natural watering (rain) 10% with irrigation Gold = 92 gram Business = 2,5 % every year after net profit Honey = 2,5 % Discovery welfare = 20 %
B. ESTABLISHMENT OF TITHE AMIL FOUNDATION ‘BERSAMA’
The establishment of ‘TITHE AMIL FOUNDATION ‘BERSAMA’ is on Friday, September 28th 2007 in fasting month. The address is at Al-Muflihun mosque at jalan Karyawan 1 Gg. H. Marjuki RT.03 RW.05 Kelurahan/Kecamatan Karang Tengah Kota Tangerang.
C. HISTORY OF ESTABLISHMENT
Once upon a time I joined the Education and Training of ‘zakat’ at Al-Madinah mosque in Ciledug. I was challenged with the presentation which was delivered by the presenters. One of the presenters presented the successful business in managing ‘zakat’ which he set up a couple years ago. By working hard without getting salary he managed and tried to get trust from the society by offering some programs. Finally he did it. Only within 2 years he had collected the charity or ‘religion tax’ 2 billions from society and delivered it to the right people ‘mustahiq’ by doing some programs. How could it be..! A few days later I inspired to establish such kind of program. I though I had a chance to establish the same foundation in my village because as I know that every year there were some people who had bigger sense of social awareness gave charity, tithe or ‘zakat’ to the poor people. I was also one of the people who involved in that program. Later on the program was over without any administration or report. This kind of program had been done for some years. And that year would be done too. I though it was pity that such a big amount of collected and delivered tithe or charity without any right administration and report. Later on after a week from joining of education and training of tithe (‘zakat’) I invited some of the rich people who join in charity program to come to my house to discuss my offering about establishment of a foundation of tithe (‘zakat). After listening to my explanation about management of tithe (‘zakat’) or charity they finally agreed to me to establish a foundation of tithe . We declared the establishment of the foundation and we called ‘LEMBAGA AMIL ZAKAT (LAZ) BERSAMA’ (Tithe Amil Foundation ‘BERSAMA’) on Friday, September 28th 2007 in the fasting month. We chose ‘BERSAMA’ (Together) because we as the committee of this foundation were also as a part of people who gave /donate charity, or tithe every year. And I recruited some rich people to involve in the committee. I chose Mr. Sugiono whose business as a vast flower to be the chairman. Mr. H. Mustang whose business as a belt maker to be an advisor. Mr. Robert Paijan whose business as a contractor of park maker. And the last one was Mr. Muhidin whose strong spirit in social movement to be the Coordinator of Fund Raising. And me myself was responsible to be secretary. Later on we made some new break through to run the program.
