The founding of Baiturrahman Mosque-based posdaya is an effort for community development by making the mosque a strategic place in implementing empowerment programs. This study aims to describe the optimization of mosque-based posdaya to improve welfare of the people of Klidon sub-village, Sukoharjo as an interesting social phenomenon to be studied. This qualitative study took place at Baiturrahman Mosque, Klidon sub-village, Sukaharjo, Ngaglik, Sleman. Data collection techniques were obtained through interviews, field notes and documentation, and it was validated through data triangulation. The data were analyzed using Miles and Huberman’s model encompassing data collection, data reduction, data display and conclusion drawing. The results showed that Baiturrahman Mosque is successfully represented as a mosque which is capable to support community empowerment in economic sector by establishing Koperasi Al-Barokah supporting business unit development such as livestock, rice barn, and small and medium-sized enterprises including market snacks, and in health sector by establishing the community health center (puskesmas) that organizes toddler and elderly posyandu in order to increase public awareness of the importance of toddlers’ and elderly’s health. Furthermore, in environmental sector, persuasive efforts are done by mobilizing the community to maintain environmental cleanliness, security, greening with mutual cooperation and harmony system done routinely on Sunday mornings and empowering cattle farmer groups. Mosque-based community empowerment is interpreted as a movement to increase community and mosque’s takmir (organizer) participation as well as to increase independence, welfare and life quality improvement of the community.
