Keywords:zakat, healthcare, impact, poor, asnaf
The healthcare system has been struggling since its inception due to a shortage of funding. Zakat has the potential to offer a solution to the funding issue of the healthcare sector. The purpose of this study is to explore the utilization of zakat funds for the healthcare services in the private sector and to propose a conceptual framework for managing zakat funds as financial aid in the healthcare services. Efficient management of zakat institutions is needed to resolve the underlying issues and to optimize the usage of zakat funds in the healthcare sector. Literature has shown that there are many sectors that utilize zakat, but the impact of zakat in the healthcare sector is yet to be realized. The proposed conceptual framework holds significance in improving the livelihood of zakat recipients and leading the country towards poverty eradication by improving the quality of healthcare services. The study also urged establishing a zakat institution that adopts the proposed model and working on the zakat collection technique to channel the zakat fund in the healthcare sector.
