Researches on digital transformation have been extensive, addressing the implications of technology in organisations. The debates on digital transformation have been emerging in line with the digitalisation in industrial revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) notion (Oztemel and Gursev, 2020), the personalisation of human intelligence with artificial intelligence in industrial revolution 5.0 (IR 5.0) idea (Javaid and Haleem, 2020), and in times of Covid-19 pandemic (Iivari et al., 2020).  Vial (2019) proposed digital transformation definition as ‘a process that aims to improve an entity by triggering significant changes to its properties through combinations of information, computing, communication, and connectivity technologies. 

Like in other sectors, the digital transformation phenomenon has been occurring in the global zakat administration. Such massive transformation recently is related to the Covid-19 pandemic (Hudaefi and Beik, 2021). In Indonesia, the phenomenon of digital zakat has been introduced since 2016 by the National Board of Zakat (BAZNAS). Digital zakat refers to digitalisation in zakat payment (Hudaefi et al., 2020). It is an online platform in virtual forms (e.g. phone-based apps and web-based apps) that provide services for zakat payment. Moreover, the digitalisation in zakat also targets the management of distribution and empowerment programs in order to achieve greater efficiency.

However, the existing studies on digital transformation of zakat institutions have been limited. Such limited studies that explain the digital transformation of zakat institution and the complexity of factors causing digital divide, the 5th ICONZ aims to initiate a scholarly platform to discuss digital transformation in zakat administration and how such transformation could elevate the resilience level of zakat management in facing hardship during the pandemic so the zakat institutions will operate efficiently to provide a tool for the Ummah to achieve prosperity amid the pandemic. Thus, several applicable recommendations are expected to be delivered from the discussion. In addition, the topic is theoretically important to discover the degree to which digital transformation has been practised in zakat administration and how such digitalisation can be understood from such practices and have high implications for society.
