  • Shariah financial planning is the process of meeting a person’s financial and non-financial goals through a comprehensive plan and management of his property and finance based on Shariah rules and guidelines. In Shariah, a person’s wealth is not his own but held in trust for Allah. How one uses the property endowed to him determines his life in the hereafter. In financial planning, the financial goals are typically well understood; the non-financial goals are meant to fulfil one’s desire and obligation to comply with Shariah, nevertheless, they are achieved through finance, such as waqf and sadaqah (donation).

  • Islam strongly endorses socio-economic and welfare-friendly practices, supporting and promoting philanthropic and charitable deeds. The concept of waqf in Shari'a is regarded as an empirical embodiment of this very preposition. Waqf derives its origin from approximately fourteen centuries back, and is known to have been first practised by the Prophet himself for public utility or social causes.

  • Since 2017, the city of Marawi was left in ruins after five months of aerial bombardments and close-quarter fighting between Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) and government forces. Many buildings were destroyed; mosques and schools are no exceptions. While rebuilding efforts have begun in the city, the government has limited resources to fund city reconstruction and Waqf properties (e.g. mosques and schools) are not constitutionally considered as part of the government assets. Fortunately, the government seeks to channel funding for city reconstruction, including Islamic finance schemes. Therefore, this paper aims to assess the opportunities and challenges to rebuild Waqf prop...
