• Abstract

    The publication of literature on Zakat Malaysia has significantly grown over the years. This study aimed to systematically review and map the literature on publications related to Malaysian Zakat. The study used the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) system in the screening process of articles that were the subject of the study. Of the 447 zakat research articles indexed in the Scopus database, 51 were selected, making Malaysian zakat publications the primary study material. The results of this study revealed the development of studies on Malaysian Zakat based on the number of publications, authors, countries, subject areas, publication sources, and articles cited. This study succeeded in finding three main segments used by researchers to classify Malaysian zakat studies: Distribution, institutional management, and collection. The survey of zakat distribution examined the success obtained from a distribution with a practical and comprehensive process; the study of zakat institutions focused on improving the quality of institutional services and strategies that influenced the preferences and satisfaction of Muslims in paying Zakat. In contrast, the study of zakat collection in Malaysia emphasized that the digitalization system of zakat collection has great potential to achieve more efficient zakat goals. This study examined several new research development directions from the three segments. It is expected to be a reference for zakat researchers in Malaysia to conduct further research and development of zakat management in Malaysia.
