  30. Co-operative Waqf Waqf refers to charities and gifts that have permanence and continuity, so that people can benefit from them for years, generations or even centuries.

  31. Co-operative Waqf This type of charity is referred to in the following well known Hadith of the Prophet (uwbp) related by Imam Muslim: “When a human being dies, his work for Allah comes to an end except for three: • a lasting charity, • knowledge that benefits others and • a good child who calls on Allah for his favour.”

  32. Co-operative Waqf “O Apostle of Allah, I obtained a land in Khaibar. I never obtained a property more precious to me than this. What do you advise me?” He (uwbp) said, “If you want you can bequeath it and give it as charity, provided that it should not be sold, bought, given as gift or inherited.” Related by Abdullah ibn Omar about Omar (ra).

  33. Co-operative Waqf Muslims’ participation in waqf endowment over the ages have been so profound that all Muslim countries have a Ministry that manages waqf endowments.

  34. Co-operative Waqf • Small individual contributions can give rise to a significant co-operative waqf. • Donors will not be entitled to any monetary gain nor refund. • Disbursements for charitable purposes will be made only from the profits generated by the fund. • The Board of Management will administer the Waqf.
