  • 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.

  • Authors: Ariff, Mohamed; Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad (2013)

  • After 250 years of unbridled pursuit of laissez faire, cross-border free trade via open economy theories and unbridled capitalism over the last four decades, a watershed appears to have been reached at the start of the 21-st century. Mercantilism of the 18-19th centuries gave way to an open economy model of freer trade in goods and services.

  • Authors: Ramadili Mohd, Shamsher Mohamad; Ariff, Mohamed (2020)

  • This chapter briefly examines ideas from Islamic wealth management and waqf concepts to see if there are ways in which human welfare can be better managed on a community-action level without the visible hands of the government. To do this, authors first examine the concept of Islamic wealth management, and then provide some discussion on how waqf assets already in place in all Islamic countries could be mobilised to meet the needs of communities for sustainable economic development as well as fairer ways of looking after the needs of the have-nots of societies.

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2016)

  • 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. Therefore, the practice of establishing and donating to waqf is an important medium to draw oneself closer to Allah (s.w.t). By willingly giving away things that are most loved, one is deemed to get Allah's (s.w.t) blessings. Apart from being a source of development for the economy of Muslims, this practice is strongly encouraged in Islamic doctrine given the benefits it guarantees in the hereafter and this world ...

  • Against the backdrop of a comatose or almost non-existent waqf system or institution in the Nigerian state, the thesis was designed with an wholistic objective of enhancing the operability of waqfs in Nigeria by ultimately prescribing policies and writing a waqf law for Nigeria such that will expedite establishing a sound and well-functioning waqf system in the country. Adopting qualitative research; in-country case studies, interviews, legal reasoning, descriptions and narratives, we studied the classical waqfs in Islam as well as the historic and modern experiences of waqf in selected countries of the (Muslim) world ...
