About the Anthology
The revival of the Islamic charitable endowment institution of Waqf has become a top priority for all Muslim communities worldwide since it was both a carrier as well as developer of Islamic Civilization over the centuries.
As the institution of Waqf remains lost ground, we have a duty to increase our knowledge on this important but receded institution. The Awqaf Anthology is the first in a series of collections of researched articles on the subject of Waqf and now complement the referred Awqaf Journal which is published by the Kuwait Awqaf Public Foundation and is an attempt to spread the knowledge of waqf especially in an age of abject poverty, inequality, and injustice and the many challenges that the global Ummah faces today.
The articles are written by both scholars and activists who are deeply committed to the greater conceptual understanding and the practical implementation of the waqf system internationally.
A must read and study for all interested in this fascinating institution.
