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.
