These criticisms at least could be related to some indicators like contract domination of non-profit sharing (murabahah) on syariah banking practice which could only be enjoyed by up middle class people, or like syariah banking still did not have innovative product which could touch poor society. This paper discussed and explored the possibility of social intermediation role which could be done by syariah banking more than what financial intermediation role could do to answer inconvenient news and stigma which stated that syariah banking was not pro poor people. Based on literature study and discussion, the role of social intermediation using social fund suitable with Islamic perspective namely zakat, infaq, shadaqah, wakaf, and hibah (ZISWAH) could be applied to become the product or syariah banking added policy in serving poor society through some strategies.
