What is it about?

Sultan Ibrahim Al-Hashemi aim of this research is to clarify the meaning of Devotion Waqf, Muslim scholars’ opinions on how to adopt this type of Waqf (endowment), how reaching an Islamic ruling on Devotion Waqf can benefit non-Muslims, and finally, how Qatari aid for foreign countries can employ this kind of endowment.

Why is it important?

The article's findings highlight that Devotion Waqf is an endowment devoted by the ruler to the interests of his subjects. This opens the door, in this age, to rich Islamic countries fostering development in impoverished countries. It is a type of endowment to which the provisions of Waqf are applied. Thus, the ruler has the right to devote Muslim wealth, as he is a trustee of Muslims for protecting and developing their wealth.


This is the first study to apply Devotion Waqf in the foreign aid to other countries. As we study and discuss Muslim scholars’ opinions, this research paves the way for more studies on this subject.
