The large number of Muslim population in Indonesia is directly proportional to the number of mosques it has. The large population of mosques scattered throughout Indonesia should be able to contribute in the prosperity of society if we return the function of the mosque as in the time of the Prophet. But in fact, today we often see there are still mosques that allocate cash funds only for the construction and physical improvement of the mosque, whereas on the other hand there are still pilgrims who are at a low economic level. This shows that there is still lack of optimal management of cash management of mosques. With the management of the mosque cash funds optimally in social orientation, it will be able to help improve the economic empowerment of the people. For example, the mosques cash funds are used to provide assistance in the form of free skills training so that it will increase the independence of the people, providing working capital assistance program to the people who have difficulty in funding to open a business. The discussion in this paper is to optimize the use of mosque cash funds through programs or activities in the form of services in the areas of worship, education, health, and social. So that will be able to restore the function of the mosque as in the time of the Prophet as a center of community activity and help economic empowerment of people to help overcome the problem of poverty in Indonesia.
