Entrepreneurship is proven as a medium for lifting an economic state of an individual or a community. It is also can be considered as an alternative area to be explored especially in the current situation where the world is affected by the pandemic of COVID-19 globally. It justifies the need to research this topic to leverage its benefits to various perspectives including the asnaf community. Unfortunately, despite its importance, limited studies have been found were conducted on entrepreneurship in asnaf community. Therefore, this research is initiating research on this topic by conducting a systematic literature review of the published works on entrepreneurship among asnaf community to explore the trend of the existing research works. A PRISMA approach is adapted to collect the relevant literature that is scoped only to the Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) databases. The result obtained from this research found that there are 12 articles in total that have discussed on asnaf zakat entrepreneurship topic. A thorough thematic analysis conducted on the extracted articles has categorized the research into three major themes, namely, the asnaf behaviour and attitude, zakat institution governance, and effectiveness of the entrepreneurial program. Based on the discussion, future research on this topic that can propose a comprehensive zakat entrepreneurship model is required to ensure a better impact of the zakat entrepreneurship programs. Thus, this research can provide a relevant article extracted from SCOPUS and WoS for future reference on this topic.
