Unfortunately, there were no scientific studies in scholarly world which attempts to develop a model of zakat literacy to measure the zakat literacy level. Hence, the study aims to construct the indicator model of zakat literacy index in Indonesia. In constructing the model, the study employed mixed methods both qualitative and quantitative approach. In regards qualitative, the study conducted content analysis and focus group discussion (FDG) which involved 9 experts from relevant industries to develop the model. Moreover, to test the validity and reliability level of the model, the study also used quantitative method by using Pearson and Cronbach Alfa test that involving 13 experts. The study successfully constructed the indicator model of zakat literacy index which consists of 2 dimensions and 10 variables and 38 indicators. The validity test of the model depict that the p-value of the variables and the indicators are generally less than 0.05. Subsequently, the reliability test of the model is greater than 0.60 which indicates that the model is significantly valid and reliable. Thus, the findings of the study could become an initial research and guidance for further study to establish an applicable research of zakat literacy index.
