  • 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 ...

  • Waqf is described as an act of dedicating a corpus of property or financial assets in perpetuity for the cause of Allah SWT. The ownership of the property or assets is transferred to Allah SWT, but the benefits are dedicated to the poor, sick, marginalized segments of society, or any other virtuous causes. Waqf institutions are among several instruments instituted in Islam to combat poverty and enhance societal welfare. Waqf provides the material infrastructure and creates a source of revenue for use in, among other things, social welfare enhancing activities, both at the family, community, and state levels. Corporate waqf is defined as a type of waqf where the mawq'f (waqf assets) ar...

  • Authors: Saleem, Muhammad Yusuf (2010)

  • This paper argues that waqf does not play its historical role to support and finance religious, charitable and educational institutions in the Muslim world. It argues that the traditional way of appointing an individual as a mutawalli to manage waqf properties and the modern way of leaving the management of waqf properties in the hands of state institutions need to be revised. In particular, it examines the modern practice of appointing a government institution as a trustee (mutawalli/nazir) for the management of waqf properties. The paper contends that the practice has not contributed to the efficient management and productivity of the waqf properties. The paper subsequently conclude...

  • 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 ...

  • Historically, the non-profit institution of waqf has played a remarkable role in developing the Islamic societies as well as in assisting the Islamic state in providing social welfare services in the health and educational sectors, supplying the basic infrastructure, providing jobs, enhancing commercial and business activities, providing food for the hungry, shelter for the poor and the needy, in addition to supporting the agricultural and industrial sectors, without incurring any cost to the government. However, this positive role played by waqf deteriorated since the end of the 19th century and has continued to deteriorate to the present time.

  • Charitable bequest as an endowment (waqf) is one of the wealth redistribution measures encouraged in Islam to bridge the gap between the haves and the have-nots. Such investments create flows of income/services of a charitable nature, in most cases, after the death of the endowers. Even though it is voluntary in nature, it is means to provide a continuous service to the needy in society and ensures a just and equitable distribution of wealth, and a means to seek God's blessings here and in the here-after. The title is on order.

  • Authors: Ismail Abdel Mohsin, Magda (2013)

  • From a mere glance at Muslim countries today, we realize that they are classified as third world though they adopt a secular system. The recent statistical data of 2009 shows the majority of people who live below poverty are found in Muslim countries. Some scholars related this fact to the oppression, humiliation and the bad policies which had been imposed in almost all Muslim countries during colonization and have continued up to the present time. Others related this to the incompetence and the corruption on the part of their governments.
