Abstract

Waqf is an Islamic charity institution which should be able to act as the catalyst for sustainable development, if the institution is systematically and optimally implemented. However, a substantial proportion of total waqf is still lying dormant across the world. The aim of the study is to obtain a better understanding in waqf governance issues. An exploratory research design is carried out on the authority which is responsible for the implementation of waqf governance in Kelantan, a state in Malaysia. The findings showed that legislation and inefficient management are among the possible impeding factors for good governance of waqf.
