Waqf is a means of drawing nearer to Allah. It is an act of worship. Waqf shows the sincerity of the endower’s faith, his desire for goodness and his avidity for the interests of the Muslims. It shows his love for them and for their subsequent generations, as he is keen for them to receive benefits that are never interrupted. Since the time of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, the Muslims have provided the most sublime examples in the fields of waqf.
This is a translation by Mahdi Lock on three chapters from the book Min Rawāʾiʿ Ḥaḍāratinā by Dr Muṣṭafā as-Sibāʿī, namely the chapter on endowments in general plus the chapter on schools and academic institutions and the chapter on hospitals and medical institutions.
