BANDUNG-Rumah Zakat together with BAZNAS (National Amil Zakat Agency) and Republika held a discussion of the BAZNAS Development Forum on Thursday (29/8). The activity carries the theme of Zakat and Nationality which is held at the Rumah Zakat Bandung branch office.
"The purpose of the zakat movement is very much in line with Indonesia's national mission. All zakat bodies and institutions work together to solve the nation's problems related to poverty, education, health to the environment, and disaster, "said Irsyadul Halim, a member of BAZNAS.
The activity was attended by M. Fuad Nasar as Director of Zakat Empowerment and Endowment of the Ministry of Religion of the Republic of Indonesia. Nur Efendi, CEO of Rumah Zakat was also attended by Irfan Junaidi, Editor in Chief of Republika, and Amil Rumah Zakat.
According to Nasar, the zakat movement never left the Indonesian national mission. According to him, the people of Aceh became proof because they had contributed to Indonesia by jointly buying a plane and donating it to the country.
"Discussion forums like this are one of the doors to collaborating for stakeholders working in the world of philanthropy and empowerment. Hopefully in the future the quality and management of zakat in our country will be more advanced, "Nur said. Jo
