Fatwa MUI: Money corruption is Haram, not for zakat

MUI (Majelis Ulama Indonesia) has issued a fatwa that the treasure of corruption is a dirty property that should not be zoned.

This was conveyed by Prof. Dr. Hasanuddin Abdul Father, Chairman of MUI Fatwa Commission in the discussion "Formulating Fiqh Zakat on SDGs", in Jakarta, Wednesday (26/7/2017).

The event also featured other speakers such as KH Masdar Farid Marsudi, BAZNAS member, M Maksum, Lecturer UIN Syarif Hidayatullah, and Suzanty Sitorus (Secretary of Indonesian Philanthropy Board / FI)

Hasanudin asserted that the assets issued by zakat are halal treasures that are not from the result of corruption.

"The treasured property has economic value, and those who issue zakat with sufficient wealth. These are the ones who are obliged to issue their zakat, "explained Hasanuddin.

Hasanuddin added that for those who are involved, they are obliged to issue some of the property according to Islamic teachings to pay zakat. From the aspect of worship, in the Qur'an mentioned, that the prayer should be accompanied by paying zakat.

While members of BAZNAS (National Amil Zakat Agency) KH Masdar Farid Marsudi, said of the abandoned pillars of Islam is zakat.

"In Indonesia there are many mosque mosques, in the offices there is also a special place for prayer, and many of them who perform the prayers but who pay zakat not as much as those who perform the prayers," said Masdar who also Rais Syuriah Executive Board Nahdlatul Ulama.

According to him, so do many who perform the pilgrimage, even the queue to be able to leave Hajj can reach 10 to 15 years.

"However, those who perform the pilgrimage do not necessarily have awareness to zakat," said Masdar.
