The Gajayana train docked smoothly at Purwokerto station, this weekend as I usually have to go to Wonosobo for office also in the morning. After maghrib and isya’ prayers then walked for a while down the street Pemuda picked up a car parked in the garage of one of the offices in Purwokerto.

The midnight journey was continued by car to the city of “The Soul of Java“. Even though I was criticized by the risk of management in the office, I really prefer to hold the wheel myself because it is more fun, adrenaline can be triggered and not get senile, he said… That’s just the reason for the “effective efficient” corporate language.

Midnight driving is actually delicious and fun and “gas-able” because the road is empty, but the road conditions are sometimes not supportive like bumpy and there are no lights like on the Purbalingga ring road that I passed, just now my speed increased from 40-60 km / h suddenly in front even though it was dimly visible that there was a metallic sparkle that had entered within the range of the close lights, so I was surprised to step on the brakes until the tires squeaked and the impact of ABS (Antilock Brake System) was felt at the end of the brake pedal.

Almost the lightless motorbike with two young people without helmets was hit by a car. The motorbike also drove slowly without feeling that his life was almost taken away and his actions that did not meet the safe driving rules could endanger others as well.

Driving an institution on many things has terms and conditions and ethics that intersect with driving a car.

Because there is a public space that is shared, especially if the institution uses public funds, we must be prepared to have good ethics and reporting and security systems and be supervised by regulators and the public such as writings on Buses and truck trucks that drive “Contact this number if the driver is dangerous”.

Driving a private car is actually also more complex than driving a Bus. Because the driver must prepare the car in advance, inspections should be routinely carried out. Not to mention having to concurrently play the role of being a kernet and conductor at the same time.

The complexity will be even more complex when the passengers, namely children, are cranky children and grab toys and don’t want to give in, the joyous event that is expected to become an open war event, especially if you add a wife to be cranky, then it feels like life.

Driving public transportation, especially those owned by bonavit companies, is certainly more guaranteed because the engine is always conditioned, tire pressure, brakes, lights, etc. Always in the inspection even for long trips there are often two drivers who can take turns.

Well, because of the high responsibility for passengers, the regulator also requires regular vehicle picking tests. It must also be that the driver passed the appropriateness and appropriateness test to get a general driver’s license B or C.

Because of the responsibility to the passengers, passengers have the right to assess the vehicle and its driver or kepo against its management so that if the public vehicle is with an application, passengers can rate the car / motorbike or driver so as to avoid the musty smell of the helmet or driver’s jacket that has been washed three full.

This is also the case with philanthropy institutions, in fact, the large or small institutions are the same as public institutions that manage trust funds, so they must be subject to regulatory regulations that are applied to these public institutions and are subject to the appropriateness and propriety of the norms that apply makrufly.

Well, it becomes a problem if managing a public institution is like managing a private institution, especially like managing a self-owned institution, as a family-owned bus po that is reluctant to transform with industry standards, it will go out of business in the lives of its passengers because of the safety standards that the driver sacrificed or left behind because of the management that was awful, or like the driver of the family car who was left to quarrel with the passengers earlier.

Fortunately, in zakat institutions in Indonesia, the ecosystem is relatively organized, there are competency standards for managers so that every amyl must pass the competency test, there is a forum that is a catalyst and a self-regulatory organization (SRO) that makes very dynamic guidelines in the industry and regulates the code of ethics of managers and institutions (code of conduct). And there are regulators, namely BAZNAS (National Amil Zakat Agency) and the Ministry of Religious Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia.

This complete ecosystem makes driving in the world of zakat in Indonesia relatively difficult to zig zag or speed haphazardly because many other drivers will soon open their windows… “Heh look at the road Bro… “

As a driver of public transportation, you must also understand and obey sharia. If not then it is like a mocker who does not clearly disclose at the beginning so that the fare contains an unclearness (ghoror) that is prohibited or after the agreement is made, it does not even deliver according to the mandate.

This principle of obedience to sharia is certainly very guide and emphasized in the world of zakat because as amil basically when he is in cahoots with Muzakki, an amil has become a representative of Muzakki to convey it to the rightful (mustahik).

Furthermore, as an amyl there is a responsibility to convey but without making his heart hurt, feeling inadequate or actually becoming dependent.

It is a failure of an amyl if it makes a hand that was once fond of giving actually become a hand below.

Like public transportation which is very, very much needed, especially in big cities where private transportation is actually a source of congestion. So giving confidence to the institution of people’s fund management (in addition to being a religious recommendation) also makes social funds more effectively efficient, effective and effective.

Moreover, if we read well that the zakat infaq shadaqah should be conveyed to “assaaili wal mahrum” To those who ask for requests as well as those who keep honor by not asking.

It feels like ziswaf funds will touch people who maintain their honor by not asking if it is managed seriously by an institution that is mandated as the father of the readership can see today in Indonesia.

Finally, as a senior driver whose paving schedule can be matched with an AKAP driver, whose driver’s call is constantly struggling by the morning tinge and the blue of the evening, who enjoys tahajjud on the wheel or listens to Gus Baha’ or UAH, UAS recites, who often feels advised by the writings on the Truck Tubs, I would like to advise my fellow drivers… “Drive Safely Brother… (Titidijae)..
