A new strategy is needed so that the potential of zakat in Indonesia can be absorbed optimally and distributed according to sharia provisions and community needs.

The strategy that the authors offer to realize this is through reforming the regulatory aspects, making the structure and position of a more strategic zakat institution, namely by forming a directorate general of zakat, and entering the state budget posture zakat, namely the zakat receipt post at the receipt of non-tax revenues, and zakat expenditure posts are in the state expenditure post for poverty alleviation. Therefore, political will is needed in order to realize zakat as an instrument of fiscal policy in Indonesia.
