Semarang, – After carrying out Friday prayers at the Baiturrahman Mosque, Vice President KH Ma’ruf Amin and his entourage headed to the Central Java Governor’s Office, to hand over assistance from the Central Java Baznas to 6,000 productive mustahik (zakat recipients), Friday (23/09/2022).

The assistance provided to mustahik was in the form of business funding support of Rp2, 500,000. Meanwhile, the business clusters that received assistance were workshops, grocery, laundry, tailors, animal husbandry, agriculture, fish farming, culinary, catering, and vegetable traders.

The 6,000 mustahik who received the funds came from 35 cities in Central Java, which were represented by 5 mustahik. In handing over the assistance, the Vice President was accompanied by the General Chairperson of the Baznas Central Java Province, KH Ahmad Darodji.

To these mustahiks, the Vice President encouraged them to seek rizki (make money). He also hoped that the mustahik would be successful in running the business so that in the future they would no longer receive zakat, but give zakat (being a muzakki).

“So that you do not continue to receive [zakat], but give zakat. So that there will be changes, this means that we help you to run productive businesses so that you can advance your class. Ready?” asked the Vice President excitedly.

“Ready,” replied the mustahiq in unison.

Present to accompany the Vice President at the event was the Head of the Vice President Secretariat Ahmad Erani Yustika, Deputy for Human Development Policy Support and Equality Development Suprayoga Hadi, Special Staff for the Vice President for Communication and Information Masduki Baidlowi, Special Staff for the Vice President for General Affairs Masykuri Abdillah, Special Staff for the Vice President for Political Affairs and Institutional Relations Robikin Emhas, and the Expert Team of the Vice President Johan Tedja Surya.
