After the first generation of Muslims, Waqf grew by leaps and bounds, and its endowment became a pillar in the religious, social, cultural, scientific, economic and political life of Islamic society to the extent that for every conceivable enterprise of social benefit there was a Waqf: for mosques, universities, schools, hospitals, orphanages. The author of this work on hubus, or hobous, the North African equivalent of the Arabic waqf (endowment), Ernest Mercier (‒), was for some years the mayor of Constantine, a city in northeast Algeria, then a French r also wrote several other works on North African subjects. The book, which is in French, first defines the Muslim obligation of charitable and pious endowment.

Definition of Waqf. Section 2(1) the Musslaman Waqf Validating Act, , defines waqf as under: “Waqf means the permanent dedication, by a persons protesting mussalman faith, of any property for any purpose recognized by the mussalman law as religious, pious or charitable.” The Muslim jurists have also defined waqf almost in the same world. Book Description: Waqfs (pious endowments) long held a crucial place in the political, economic, and social life of the Islamic world. Waqfs were major sources of education, health care, and employment; they shaped the city and contributed to the upkeep of religious edifices.

The University of Al-Azhar is another example. It was founded in Cairo in and was financed by its Waqf revenues until the government of Muhammad Ali in Egypt took control over the Awqaf in (Ramadan, p. ). Waqf financing of education usually covers libraries, books, salaries of teachers and other staff, and stipends for students.   A waqf is a bequest made to a community, such as mosque or a town. It is a term used in wills. Allah doesn’t write wills. WAQF is an endowment made by a Muslim to a religious, educational, or charitable cause. The term waqf literally means “confinement and prohibition” or causing a thing to stop or stand still.
