Do you know about Robin Hood story? The story tells about a hero who breaks the law in the name of justice. Robin Hood robs all wealth of the rich who pass his forest territory. After his robbing, he divided all those wealth for the poor people.

267. O ye who believe! give of the good things which ye have (honourably) earned, and of the Fruits of the earth which we have produced for you, and do not Even aim at getting anything which is bad, In order that out of it ye may give away something, when ye yourselves would not receive it except with closed eyes. and know that Allah is free of all wants, and worthy of all praise.

According to the Islamic Laws, we are prohibited to seek any survivals by violating any moral ethics and the Islamic laws.

Then, I wonder how if that story happens in Indonesia? Could you imagine! Could the same condition of the Robin Hood tale is may be happen in Indonesia? I convince that what may be happen in Indonesia is worst that what the tale story.

Indonesia is a developed country with all it problems and development. One of its problems is the poverties. The blur Indonesian economic system, that nor capitalist or socialist could not accommodate its entire peoples problem fairly and realized the social justice in the economic welfare. This condition caused into the high level of economic gabs among the people in Indonesia. The rich society thought that they were spent several rupiahs for national taxes. Moreover the poor society is being confused to get their survivals.

My point is to solve this social economic gab. We need an Islamic treasury instrument. Do you still remember about our Elementary School lesson about the five pillars of Islam? The five Islamic Pillars are: Syahadah, shalat, zakat, shiam, hajj. I convince that, there are particulars reasons in the hierarchy of five Islamic pillars that takes zakat as the third pillar after shalat. Moreover al-qur’an mentioned exactly 27 times the command to perform five daily praying which is followed with the command of zakat. How wonderful zakat is Allah is command for it up to 27 times in the qur’an. Unfortunately, the education of zakat is very limited in Indonesia compared with the education of shalat, fasting, or hajj, the education of zakat is less the other Islamic pillars.

Zakat is the most important Islamic treasury that could be used to solve Indonesian economic gabs. If every rich people aware about benefits of zakat, if the government stimulates its people to give zakat as well as the government will in the distribution of national income, if every children being educated well in zakat so they can perform it well in their future, if you understand that zakat could be the social agent to reduces the high social economic gabs among the rich and the poor, if you see what I mean in my speech, please do zakat! God bless you!
