Distribution of zakat funds is in order to improve the welfare of the people.

To that end, Baznas Lebak stipulates the payment of zakat fitrah in 2018 of Rp35,000 per person.

The determination of zakat fitrah of that size involves the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI), Islamic organizations and local governments.
