(The Role of Goverment in Management of Zakat in Indonesia and Malaysia)
Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. The law of zakat is obligatory on all muslims, but many of them still did not implement it. According to the research conducted by the Badan Amil Zakat Nasional (BAZNAS) and the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) potential zakat in Indonesia in 2012 amounted to Rp.217 trillion (RM58 billion/ USD18 billion), but the collection of zakat in 2013 only Rp.2.1 trillion (RM650 juta/ USD200 juta) or around one per cent. The Indonesian muslims population are 210 million peoples (BPS-Statistic Indonesia: 2012), but the collection and distribution of zakat distinction is still far from its potential. The imbalance between the amount collected and the potential zakat is a major problem. This paper focuses on the role of government in the implementation of zakat in Islam and confront the government of Indonesia and Malaysia’s role in the management of zakat. Studies show that the Islamic view on the management of the zakat as the sole ruler and as punishment for defaulting lender to pay zakat is very important, because it relates to improving the welfare of society and as one of the country’s financial resources. In Indonesia zakat management is still done by private institutions, communities and individuals that anyone can do it either with or without permission from the government. As a result the government should take over the management of zakat, as is the case in Malaysia, management of zakat is done by the government/state, so collection of zakat will increase and distribution of zakat will be effective, efficient and even at national lavel, although there are still people who can collect or distribute zakat, but must be with the consent of the government/local-state

Loan Loss Provisions, Income Smoothing and Loan Growth: Evidence from Islamic Banks
This paper analyses income smoothing behavior and procyclical effect of loan loss provisions in Islamic bank. The model includes the use of loan loss provisions for discretionary and non-discretionary purposes in Islamic banks and relates it to the ways of Islamic banks disburse loans. The empirical results show that Islamic banks use loan loss provisions for non-discretionary purposes, while well-capitalized banks and banks focusing on lending activities may use loan loss provisions for income smoothing to a lesser extent. Moreover, it is documented that higher non-discretionary component of loan loss provisions results in a decline in loan growth and hence, non-discretionary provisions are procyclical. In contrast, the discretionary component of loan loss provisions does not exhibit any significant impact on loan growth. Finally, the findings show that the negative link between non-discretionary provisions and loan growth does not hold for well-capitalized banks, and banks focusing on lending activities. This paper, therefore, highlights that higher capitalization and higher loan asset portfolios tend to neutralize the procyclical impact of non-discretionary provisions through their income smoothing behaviour. In this regard, the provisioning system is particularly recommended for less-capitalized banks and banks which do not focus on lending activities since they do not conduct income smoothing strategies.

A Proposed Formula for Reserve Requirement–Financing to Deposit Ratio: The Case of Islamic Banking in Indonesia
This chapter attempts to find the ideal reserve requirement–financing to deposit ratio (RR-FDR) ratio for Islamic banking industry in Indonesia by deriving the ideal quantitative formula of the ideal RR-FDR and conducting simulations to identify its impact to each Islamic bank. Simulations on the financial ratios related to calculating RR-FDR are conducted based on the bank profit maximization model and the bank balance sheet approach. The results find that FDR is suggested to be between 77 and 109 % with 5 % RR. However, the liquidity reserve position of each Islamic bank shows that there are five Islamic banks having a minimum liquidity reserve (less than 5 % RR) and seven Islamic banks having a minimum liquidity reserve (less than 8 % RR). It means Islamic banking industry in Indonesia does not have enough liquidity reserves to mitigate both short-term and long-term liquidity mismatches leading to liquidity pressures. Hence, the regulator is suggested to consider such an optimal FDR-RR in Islamic banking industry for an effective implementation of the macroprudential policies.

The multidimensional poverty is one of the big problems faced by some countries. It is a condition of an individual that had a low income, low education and low health care. Then, Amartya Sen and Mahbub Ulhaq had offered a new measure on Development namely Human Development Index (HDI). As in Islam, the development had arranged from the approach of Maqāṣid Syarῑ’ah and Al-Ghazali (1111 H) was the first Muslim intellectual who had Developed the thesis and had divided maqasid into three aspects, ḍaruriyyah, ḥajiyah, taḥsiniyyah. Furthermore, ḍaruriyyah consist of five basic elements namely Ḥifẓ Dῑn (Religion), Ḥifẓ Nafs (Life), Ḥifẓ ‘Aql (Intellectual), Ḥifẓ Nasl (Progeny), Ḥifẓ Māl (Wealth).

The need for Shariah harmonization in financial reporting standardization: The case of Indonesia
This study aims to analyze IFIs’ stakeholders’ perception on Shariah harmonization for financial reporting standards inIndonesia as a part of the development effort of linking the emerging global Islamic banking to Indonesian financial and industrial markets.
A sample of 160 respondents, who were stakeholders of Islamic banks, was taken from Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia and its surrounding major districts to examine the stakeholders’ perception on Shariah harmonization effort toward the implementation of a uniformed financial reporting standard for Islamic financial institutions. Data for this study were collected using a structured questionnaire.
Through this study, the authors found several measures to be taken to ensure Shariah harmonization efforts in Indonesia such as deep understanding on the fatawā brought into practices and strict monitoring on the Islamic banks in applying the financial reporting standards that imply practicing the fatawā, both de jure and de facto. However, the respondents differ in their opinion on the possibility of Shariah harmonization, both de jure and de facto. The role of various actors involved in the financial reporting standardization may impede Shariah harmonization to take place.
The study is only looking at one case study, which is Indonesia. Therefore, future studies should consider more countries and significant number of respondents. Different research instruments to measure the perception can also be an interesting research exploration. In addition, adopting deep Islamic political economy of accounting theory may support better analysis on the issue of financial reporting standardization for Islamic financial institutions.
This paper has practical significance for financial reporting standard setters for Islamic banks and policy-makers to understand the key behavioral and demographical dimensions of their stakeholders and using these dimensions to effectively position important aspects in financial reporting standards setting.

A Fairness Model Based on Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Set for Sharia Financing Scoring
Conventional credit scoring model could lead to serious and unfair problems because in certain case it would incriminate one party in financing. Sharia financing scoring model complies with Sharia rules and ensure fairness among parties. Currently, there are no certain rules in Sharia financing scoring model which lead to subjective judgements. In the subjective judgements, words could mean different things to different people. Thus, this paper proposed and deployed models for scoring of default risk level by using Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Set model to support the subjective judgements in maintaining Sharia rules. Installment amount and sum of delay period were used as variables for that scoring. Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Set model was proposed to support the subjective judgements in maintaining Sharia rules. Beginning delay period also used as weighted to the risk scoring results. Beside that, this paper also proposed the method for computing real lost value. It was used as basis in fines computation according to default risk level, bad debt expense, and installment weighted average.
