On Monday (4/07/2022), the National Amil Zakat Agency of the Republic of Indonesia (BAZNAS RI) held the "Public Expose of Qurban Economy in 2022". The event was attended by all Zakat Management Institutions, starting from Provincial BAZNAS, Regency/City BAZNAS, and LAZ throughout Indonesia. In addition, the general public can also watch on the BAZNAS TV Youtube channel to get information about the Potential and Economic Estimates of the 2022 Qurban.

This event was opened directly by the Chairman of BAZNAS RI, Prof. Dr. KH. Noor Ahmad. Also present to give a speech, the Chairman of BAZNAS RI, Dr. Zainulbahar Noor, M.Ec. The panel session moderated by Dr. Muhammad Choirin (Head of Research and Development Division) was filled by speakers including Dr. H.

Muhammad Hasbi Zaenal (Director of Studies and Development) presented the study's results on the Economic Potential Qurban of 2022. Finally, Dr. Rinol Sumantri, MEI (Lecturer of UIN Raden Fatah Palembang), explained Qurban and Economic Growth.

In the welcoming session, the Chairman of BAZNAS RI, Prof. Dr. KH. Noor Achmad said that the 2022 Qurban Economic Public Expose event was a good momentum to increase the supply of Qurban animals in remote parts of the country through the "BAZNAS Online Kurban" program. In addition, this event can maximize the tremendous economic value of the community's economic cycle.

Meanwhile, Deputy II of BAZNAS RI, Dr. H. Muhammad Imdadun Rahmat, further explained that the readiness of BAZNAS RI as the primary driver of empowerment of mustahik breeders aims to meet the availability of Qurban animals by providing low and competitive prices for Qurban in the market to make Shohibul Qurban have the ability to buy Qurban animals.

Then, the presentation of the material from the Director of Studies and Development of BAZNAS, Dr Muhammad Hasbi Zaenal, said that the implementation of the 2022 Qurban Economic Public Expose showed a good increase in economic value compared to last year. In addition, the value of the economic potential of the Qurban of Rp. 31.6 T is a value large enough to turn the wheels of the community's economy.

Furthermore, the explanation of the material from the lecturer of UIN Raden Fatah Palembang, Dr. Rinol Sumantri, further explained that the Qurban has social, economic and spiritual dimensions, so it needs to be optimized such as celebrating Ramadan worship and other religious activities.

Finally, a closing statement from Dr. Zainulbahar Noor related to the efforts of BAZNAS and Qurban providers to support increasing the value of Qurban from a potential IDR 31.6 trillion in 2022 to IDR 310 trillion in 2025, this is a challenge in itself. In addition, BAZNAS needs to increase the empowerment of livestock halls in all regions, including in eastern Indonesia, to accelerate and evenly distribute the availability of Qurban throughout the country.
