This paper describes the management of zakat through a persuasive approach in order to develop the awareness of the community to become obligatory zakat not only the recipients of zakat. The potential to become obligatory zakat in Makassar City is very strategic and the opportunity is very large because it is supported by areas where the people are very obedient in carrying out their religious teachings. It's just that an institution is needed that can manage the management of zakat so that the distribution is right on target and fair in alleviating the poor. Law Number 23 Year 2011 has granted authority to BAZNAS to manage zakat which includes planning, collecting, distributing and utilizing activities. The implications of zakat management refer to the priority scale of the needs of zakat recipients so that their use can be used both in productive and consumptive forms. To realize public trust, BAZNAS works professionally to close the opportunity for violations in the management system. Even internal and external supervision and audits are carried out so that it can provide quality assurance in the accountability of zakat management. In order to avoid chaos with other zakat institutions, intense coordination is carried out so that the management of zakat does not overlap its management system and is able to maximize revenue in realizing equitable distribution.
