This research is important to do because until now, the zakat funds that can be collected is still very little when compared to the existing zakat potential. The purpose of this research is to find out what strategies the South Sumatra BAZ should take so that the collection of zakat becomes more optimal.
The method used is a mix method with SWOT analysis techniques. The results showed that (1) BAZ South Sumatra did not have professional management; (2) low public trust from zakat payers (muzakki) and (3) the collection of zakat funds from muzakki in government agencies is not optimal. Therefore, the BAZ South Sumatra zakat collection strategy that can be done is to increase professionalism in institutional management, increase public trust and optimize the collection of zakat muzakki funds in government agencies.
