EKONOMI SYARIAH SEBAGAI ALTERNATIF KESEJAHTERAAN EKONOMI MASYARAKAT PADA ERA COVID-19
The implementation of the Sharia economic system aims to bring prosperity and peace to the whole community. However, Indonesia is currently plagued by COVID-19 issues that harm the economy. The purpose of this study is to find out how the Islamic economy becomes an alternative economy in the welfare of the people in the COVID-19 era. This research uses descriptive qualitative research methods with relevant literature approaches or Islamic economic theories and interviews. The results of the study concluded that sharia economics with its principles based on the Qur'an and Sunnah was able to be a solution for the welfare of society, especially now because of COVID-19. In Islamic economics, there are superior moral values and spiritual values that are fused. With the values and sharia economic system, people can be prospered and kept away from worrying lives in the future due to the impact of COVID-19. The main alternative based on the sharia economic system in the welfare of COVID-19 affected communities is zakat and its derivatives. This study is an indisputable proof that zakat instruments have extraordinary potential. For this reason, it is necessary to have a strong commitment and cooperation among all stakeholders of zakat, both the government, the House of Representatives, Amil Zakat bodies and institutions, as well as the community as a whole in realizing sustainable zakat development.
