Abstract

Waqf is an Islamic financial instrument which can be utilised in solving various educational issues in Malaysia. It is a known fact that waqf education institutions are significant assets in the development of knowledge amongst the Muslim communities. Waqf provides Muslims with opportunities not only to acquire knowledge but also as a channel to do good deeds. This article will review the beginnings of educational waqf in Islamic civilisation during the days of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) up to the present day and also the history of educational waqf in Malaysia. It will also elaborate on the concept, definition and types of waqf. Consequently, this article will highlight the importance and functions of educational waqf institutions in Malaysia's education development. In addition, this article will also look into several suggestions which could be implemented towards making waqf as possible solutions to educational issues. It can be concluded that Malaysia has a very long history of educational waqf and waqf properties such as lands and buildings, can be developed to bring about significant contributions to the development of higher education waqf in Malaysia.
