Waqf Guidelines


السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I Hope and make dua that Mufti Sahib D.B is in the best of health. May Allah Ta'ala accept your khidmaat of Deen. Ameen

I was requesting if the Darul Ifta could kindly assist with an Islamic Waqf deed in pdf format. If not possible, then a humble request for certain Shar'ee guidlines on how to create an Islamic Waqf whereby the Waaqif wants to put certain Islamic organisations including himself and certain members of his family as beneficiaries of the waqf.

جزاكم الله خيرا



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We apologise for the belated response.

Unfortunately, the Darul Iftaa does not have a prepared Waqf deed. However, you may refer to the following link for some Waqf guidelines.



And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
Checked and Approved by,
Mufti Ebrahim Desai
