Historically speaking, the institution of waqf played an incredible role in providing all the basic and fundamental services to Muslim societies in terms of providing education, goon health care, basic infrastructures, employment opportunities, enhanced the commercial and business activities, food for the hunger, sheltered for the poor and the needy, besides supporting the agricultural and industrial sectors. Nevertheless, its role has been deteriorated since the end of the 19th century up to the present as the governments in different Muslim countries centralized its administration and abolished family waqf. The main objective of this paper is to revitalize the administration and the law of waqf in order to meet the basic and the essential services which are needed in Muslim societies and without any cost to the government.
