  • The institution of waqf is a historical institution adopted and developed by Muslims to get closer to Allah (s.w.t.) by providing different services to their societies and communities. This institution provides many goods and services such as education, healthcare, national security, different kinds of agricultural and industrial products, transportation facilities and basic infrastructure without any cost to the government. However, the last century, namely at the end of the Ottoman Empire, witnessed the destruction of this institution and its role was replaced and carried out by the governments in the Muslim countries, a move that exhausted the government's budget.

  • Studies on waqf have successfully caught the attention of scholars to discuss its various aspects especially the role of waqf in the form of cash waqf in the contemporary environment. 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. Thus, the waqf institution requires a new mechanism of cash collections as waqf. One way for that is deduction from employment income. This study intendsto examine the ...

  • 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.

  • The institution of waqf, or an Islamic foundation, has played a significant role throughout Islamic history, from the time of the Prophet (pbuh) to the present time. Although this institution existed before the coming of Islam, Islam was the first religion to develop its legal system and to regulate it. It became the main device created by Muslims to facilitate most social services such as education, health care, national security, transportation facilities, basic infrastructure, etc., without any cost to the government. Recently, the creation of new waqf has concentrated mainly on movable waqf, i.e., cash waqf.

  • Wakaf, or a religious endowment for a charitable cause, is a lesser-known component of Islamic wealth management. It can be viewed as a way of doing good, giving back to society, or earning pahala (divine reward). These endowments have usually involved immovable assets such as buildings and land, but they can also be in the form of movable assets such as furniture and jewellery - as long as they are not forbidden in Islam. Setting up a cash wakaf, or trust fund, is another way to make an endowment. Cash wakaf, which is based on the concept of mudarabah, has been around since the 8th century. But the Islamic authorities have recently established a legal framework for such endowments in...

  • Wealth and property are the pride and splendor of humans, in so, those who are willing to donate could be considered as those seeking Allah's (s.w.t) blessing and mercy.
