A critical assessment of the waqf law being prepared by IDB/IRTI and Quwait Foundation
There is a huge need in the Islamic world to revitalize the waqf system. The currently dilapidated state of waqfs in most countries should actually be considered as an opportunity to design a thorough reform taking into consideration not only the classical Islamic waqf law but also the latest practices and norms in the west. It is to be hoped that such a synthesis of the classical Islamic and modern western practices and norms in conformity with the Shariah will lead to an ideal waqf law that can be of vital importance for the restoration of this institution.
