This research seeks to analyze the relevance of Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) (PBUH) type of governmental budget in the current Indonesian context, in which Muslims constitute the biggest population. In its early stage of development, Islam grew and spread rapidly after the Prophet moved to Medina from Mecca. At that time, the spread of Islam was indirectly supported by a budget. It only took ten years from scratch for the Prophet to reach the stage of doing battle with the Roman Empire. The research method used in this paper is a qualitative method with a postpositive paradigm. The data was collected from secondary sources and discussions of specific issues in news media. The results showed that some components of the public budget, such as ghanima (war booty), fai (booty), and jizya (non-Muslim tithe), need to be modified to be relevant to the current Indonesian context. Other countries have applied ghanima and fai in different ways. However, such other practices as zakat (tithe) and sadaqa (charity) are still relevant to supporting Indonesian economic development.
