The Messenger of Allah S.A.W. said,
“When the son of Adam dies, his actions come to end except for three; sadaqah jariyah (ongoing charity), knowledge which brought benefit, and a pious child who makes supplications for him.” (Narrated by Abu Hurairah in Sahih Muslim)
Waqf is one of the forms of sadaqah jariyah mentioned in the hadith above. Simply put, it is a lasting contribution to benefit the community in various ways. Throughout history, waqf has contributed to the construction of mosques, schools, universities and scientific institutions across the world.

What is WAQF?
Waqf is an Arabic word which may be translated as endowment. A simple definition of Waqf is the dedication of a property (can be fixed asset or cash) by a person through a will or otherwise for pious purposes, religious purposes or for charitable purposes. The second type is Waqf khas, or specific waqf, which is a dedication for the benefit of the person's family members, offspring and their descendants.
Other than land or building, a person may also waqf useful belongings or objects which can be of benefit to other people. For example, a piece of carpet or chair can be made waqf to the mosque.
This is essentially a charity or ‘endowment for life’ project aimed at encouraging Muslims to practise virtuous religious attributes. Waqf is one of the ways of worship or a way to draw closer to Allah S.W.T. through the endowed wealth for charitable acts or purposes. In case the object is not an everlasting object, then it must be ensured that it is used for as long as it remains usable.
Create a noble and impactful contribution to humanity through our WAQF programmes and generate a lasting and perpetual benefit for society.
WAQF IN RAMADHAN
Doing waqf is more than just an act of charity - it also provides you with a continuous opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those in need. The returns from your donation will bring relief to vulnerable communities year on year. In addition, the rewards from giving charity are multiplied during Ramadhan.
Waqf can also be done on behalf of someone else, making it a thoughtful and meaningful gift.
