This study was aims to develop the valid and reliable instrument for measuring the subjective happiness for zakat receivers. The study applied the research and development design. Data were collected through observation, focus group discussion, and field assessment by distributing the instrument. The results show that Mustahiq Happiness Index (IKM) can be measured based on six indicators, namely accomplishment, engagement, meaning, pleasure, relationship, and spirituality.
