  • There is a huge need in the Islamic world to revitalize the waqf system. The currently dilapidated state of waqfs in most countries should actually be considered as an opportunity to design a thorough reform taking into consideration not only the classical Islamic waqf law but also the latest practices and norms in the west. It is to be hoped that such a synthesis of the classical Islamic and modern western practices and norms in conformity with the Shariah will lead to an ideal waqf law that can be of vital importance for the restoration of this institution

  • Historically speaking the institution of waqf, which is a non-governmental organization (NGOs), has played a significant role throughout Islamic history, from the time of the Prophet (pbuh) to the beginning of the 19th century. Although this institution existed before the coming of Islam, yet, Islam was the first religion to develop its legal framework and regulate it. Thus, it became one of the devices created by Muslims to fulfill many services that are financed by the state or the government today, such as education, healthcare, national security, transportation facilities, basic infrastructure, food, shelter, and jobs for many. It acted like a network, penetrating many service sec...

  • Muslims, for centuries, have fulfilled their social responsibilities and served their societies with an institution called waqf. Thus, waqfs have constituted the most important NGOs and civil society institutions in the Islamic world. Wealthy Muslims establish waqfs based upon a statement of Prophet Muhammad known as "sawab ba'd al wafat". The Prophet is reported to have said tge following: "When a person dies all his deeds come to an end and his account book, daftar al amal, is closed, except for three: Knowledge, from which people can benefit, ongoing charity, a pious offspring". Waqf is the institution which allows Muslims to fulfil all these three tasks, often simultaneously, and...

Cash waqf is increasingly gaining popularity among Malaysian Muslims, and waqf institutions are expecting more cash contributions in order to develop idle waqf lands. The Malaysian government has also given tax-exemptions for cash waqf donors to encourage more contributions. However, total collection of cash waqf is still not very large.

  • This book presents successful case studies in Muslim and Muslim minority countries that have revolutionized the redevelopment of idle waqf properties into productive land trusts. The revival of this institution over the last two decades shows the growing optimism in galvanizing the socioeconomic role of waqf by adopting its flexible shariah measures. Innovative ways of financing redevelopment allow Muslims to extend these roles to include new beneficiaries. New uses for these properties include providing services to the community, opening jobs for the majority of people, funding small entrepreneurs, educating the masses, providing health care, and sheltering the poor and needy.
