Improving the Ummah welfare through Waqf
If you’re looking for how you can contribute towards improving the welfare of the ummah, directly through your sadaqah, you’ve come to the right place.
This blog post will give you an overview on the types of Waqf and go through International Waqf Fund’s Various Waqf share sectors.
Types of Waqf:
Any religious buildings or real estate utilised for providing a safe space and satisfy religious needs of the community is known as a Religious Waqf. The Ka’bah in Makkah is recognised as the first ever religious Waqf. Satisfying the religious needs of millions of Muslims throughout centuries.
Supporting the less fortunate members of society through funding public utilities such as education, health services, water and other public facilities all falls under Philanthropic Waqf. An example of this is a well bought in Madinah for the purpose of providing water to the community by Uthman (may Allah be please with him).
The role of Waqf is to preserve resources for the confined benefit of society. These resources are often linked to non-perishable properties.
