About the book
Awqaf of the Holy Prophet and some of his Noble Sahabah, a Juristic, Historical and Documented Study
By Dr ʿAbd Allah bin Muḥammad bin Saʿd al-Ḥujailī
Translated by Prof Yousuf Dadoo, UNISA
Waqf is one of the most vital of instruments for social stability and transformation, yet it is probably the least understood of all Islamic practices.
This is not made easier by the fact that there are no substantial texts on waqf available in the English language. For the first time, Awqaf SA presents an accessible, readable and easily understandable basic text on waqf.
Emanating from Madinah, waqf rose to underpin one of the world’s greatest civilisations. In this book, we are taken step-by-step through the history and the underlying juristic aspects of waqf.
