  • awqaf_in_history_and_its_implications.pdf.jpg
  • Chapter in Book


  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2014)

  • This paper aims at analysing the relevance of the historical awqaf system for modern Islamic economies. The main argument focuses on the fact that the awqaf system has provided throughout Islamic history all the essential services at no cost to the state. Thus, a successful modernisation of the system implies a significant cut in government expenditure and all the associated benefits; including downsizing the state sector and a reduction and even an eventual elimination of riba. As far as the modernisation of the system is concerned, historical evidence indicates that the real exiting potential lies in the cash awqaf. It is envisaged here that two powerful Islamic financial institutio...

  • 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...

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2009)

  • This book will be a valuable addition to the growing literature on this finance subject. In the book, an attempt is made to explain the concept of cash-waqf, its mechanism, operations and management in the light of Shariah. As the book deals with both theory and application of the cash-waqf concept in Muslim countries as well as in non-Muslim countries, it will serve as a basis for further research work.

  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2010)

  • 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...

  • Industry Article


  • Authors: Shaikh Abdul Razak, Shaikh Hamzah (2015-06-26)

  • Islam acknowledges the right of individuals to own wealth and rights of community members and family to get a portion of the wealth. The distribution of wealth is through the system of Charity, Zakat, Hibah and Inheritance (Fara’id/ Mirath). As large numbers of Muslims reside in non-Muslim countries, they have to accept the Civil Law as the paramount law of the country. As such, the distribution of inheritance has caused controversies and fervent debates over the years when the Civil Law takes precedence over Shariah law. Consequently, the problem statement of this paper is to identify the different issues and restrictions in wealth distribution faced by Muslims and reverts living in ...

  • Performing hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam which may become compulsory for a Muslim who has financial ability to perform this ibadah at least once in his lifetime. To facilitate Muslims to fulfil this religious obligation, countries which have majority Muslim population like Malaysia, Indonesia and Maldives have established legal entities/institutions to manage hajj funds from hajj depositors (aspirant pilgrims) and provide services related to hajj. Although these institutions share the same objective in terms of helping Muslims to perform hajj, their operational activities are largely different. This paper aims to contribute to the understanding of hajj fund management insti...

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2014)

  • 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. Available in p...
