The poverty in Indonesia is the long-term problem which it has not been solved by the government. The number of poor people that recorded by Central Bureau of Statistics in Karanganyar is 108.461 inhabitants (2014). Islam has a high attention to take the poverty and the backwardness down from the poor man, because the poverty in Islam is the big danger for the people and not a few people who fall civilization only because of poverty. For solving this problem, Islam has the exact alternative. Islamic Economic system has two instruments which can solve the long-term poverty problem in Indonesia they are zakat and cash waqf. Zakat is the one of economics’ element and the pillars of Islam which must be implemented by every Moslem. Zakat is already widely distributed to several mustahik such as an indigent, poor, orphan, street children and other. And we can see also that zakat has been distributed to fund the development of infrastructure such us mosque, employment and other. But, most of distributed zakat is the consumptive zakat. Whereas the effective zakat for economic growth is the productive zakat which educates mustahik to attempt and to manage zakat fund until he can be muzakki later. From the background, the writer’s research is about the productive zakat management strategy in order towards poverty reduction. And the purpose of it is to know about the productive zakat management strategy in BAZNAS Karanganyar and its role for poverty reduction.
