The purpose of the research was to offer a learning strategy that make Islamic education can be implemented in a real life, because many scholars, like Budhy Munawar Rachman, Komarudin Hidayat, and also Anies Baswedan said that there were facts of declining of values and the increasing of humanity crisis. To overcome those problems, Budi Mulia Dua Senior High School proposed a paradigm of religion as practice. Religion as a practice is delivered to the student not only as a cognitive side, but also as an affective side by practicing the lesson to the real life. In this research, the teacher used student-centered approach to build active learning, in which students actively formulate questions, answer questions, and solve problems by themselves. To stimulate students thought, Contextual Teaching and Learning (CTL) approach gave the students adequate information on what happen to their society. The effort to connect the lesson with real life was framed in a project. Students of grade 10 were asked to make an alms (zakat) foundation starting from deciding the name of organization to distributing to the right people. To create this program interesting, the students didn’t make a report based-paper but they made a web blog as a place to write and share all the activities. The result of the research showed that the students did very good achievement in understanding the meaning and also the massage of zakat. The project gave awareness to the learners on how important doing good thing is and presented unforgettable moments that giving something are wonderful experience. At the end, this project inspired the students and also the school to make another social movement. Moreover, this project became an example of how to build humanism, togetherness, and empathy to the others. Keywords: student, teacher, students-centered, CTL, zakat foundation
