Zakat is the only pillar of Islam that has a social dimension. The Indonesian Islamic Economics and Finance Masterplan (MAKSI) released by BAPPENAS included zakat as a state financial instrument. The inclusion of zakat as an inclusive financial instrument is because the role of zakat has proven concrete in alleviating poverty. According to the Center of Strategic Studies, The National Zakat Board (BAZNAS) the Republic of Indonesia, one of the roles of zakat in the development of the country’s economy is to develop people’s economy through productive and creative zakat distribution, so that it can improve the ability of mustahik to meet their needs. Such a role is the objective of zakat according to Law No. 23 of 2011 that is to increase the benefits of zakat for the welfare of the society and for poverty reduction. To achieve this goal requires a huge sum of zakat fund and therefore, cooperation with other institutions is necessary. One of these institutions is the Hajj Financial Management Agency (BPKH). The Hajj Financial Management Agency (BPKH) was formed by the government to manage Hajj funds based on sharia principles, prudence, security and value-benefits. So, there is a possibility of cooperation between the management of zakat and the management of hajj funds that have value-benefits. In this study, the juridical-normative approach method was used to study the management of hajj funds and the management of productive zakat in terms of law and concepts. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to review the laws and schemes used in the cooperation between zakat management organization and the Hajj Financial Management Agency (BPKH). This study concludes that: first, the synergy between Hajj Funds and Productive Zakat can be done legally, and, second, the scheme used is in the cooperation.
