AWQAF Journal Project


        ​  The AWQAF Journal project is based on a conviction that Waqf, as a concept and an experience, has great developmental potential, which entitles it to cope with the challenges that confront the Muslim nation. The history of the Islamic world is also reflected on Waqf's rich experience in devising a social involvement. It encompasses almost all diverse paths of life and helps primarily in developing solutions for emerging human difficulties. During the decline of the Muslim nation, Waqf provided shelter and support for a significant share of the innovations that Islamic Civilization was known for, it also secured their passing from one generation to another.

          Nowadays, the Islamic world is witnessing a governmental and popular orientation towards mobilizing its material competencies and investing its genuine perceptions, which is cherished by culture makers' in a spirit of scholarly innovation to arrive at fully comprehensive developmental models that are deeply rooted into the values of righteousness, virtue and justice.

          Based on this conviction, the AWQAF Journal aims at achieving a mission that would enable Waqf to assume the real and befitting standing in the Arab and Islamic field of thought. It therefore seeks to emphasize Waqf as a discipline, those remotely or greatly interested in Waqf to uphold a scientific trend towards developing Waqf literature and link it to comprehensive social development consideration.

          Since, the basic concept of waqf is related to volunteering, such a requirement cannot prosper unless AWQAF journal becomes concerned with the social work which is directly related to community issues, social work, volunteering and other relevant issues. When those issues are combined together, reaction between the state and the society accepted and the balanced partnership would make the future of the society and the role of the NGOs in this effort.
