During the early period of the Islamic civilization, the institution of waqf played various roles in the life of the Muslim. It had provided many crucial services in various sectors without inflicting any cost to the government. However, these roles have deteriorated since the 19th century to the present time. Since then, the situation of almost all waqf properties has been neglected, unproductive, and a burden to all the Muslim countries, including Sudan, and has weaken its roles in providing any services. This paper will highlight the recent revival of the institution of waqf in Sudan in the last decades and will find out to what extend this revival succeeded in developing the old waqf properties.
