Various types of waqf and endowments have existed for many years, and there have been ongoing innovations in their implementation since their origin in the Islamic era. Understanding waqf's types, characteristics, and eligibility criteria is essential for effectively navigating this philanthropic concept. Waqf rules are primarily derived from Islamic sources, including the Holy Quran, the teachings and practices of Prophet Muhammad (Sunnah), the consensus of companions (Ijma), and analogical deductions (Qiyas). These sources guide the principles and guidelines for establishing and managing waqf.
