Waqf: (Pl: Awqaf/waqfs) Literally waqf means to stop, contain, or to preserve. In shari’ah, a Waqf is a voluntary, permanent, irrevocable dedication of a portion of one's wealth – in cash or kind – to Allah. Once a waqf is made, it belongs to Allah and the corpus of the Waqf always remains intact. The fruits of the Waqf may be utilised for any Shari’ah compliant purpose.
The institute of Waqf has alway been a means of benefiting humanity - through endowments made during the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and throughout the dynasties of Islamic societies. Ashraful Uloom Waqf Project, is an opportunity to rekindle the tradition of Islamic Endowments. A Waqf donation to Ashraful Uloom will be a means of sadaqah jariyah and eternal reward as the income accrued will be continuously used for for the benefit of society. InshaAllah
