وقف: اسلام اور مروجہ قوانین کے آئینے میں (ایک تقابلی جائزہ)
Waqf is an Arabic word, literally means detention, endowment and is "stop" that is, Stop from being treated as an ordinary property. It denotes tying up of the substance of a property in the ownership of the Wakif for some religious and pious purpose. After dedication the waqf property vests in God. Such dedication must be unconditional. Irrevocable, perpetual, uncontingent, inalienable and the right of ownership of the dedicator is extinguished. Waqf property also ceases to be heritable. The person making the waqf may be of any sex, of any age and may be made inter vivos or testamentary. In case of waqf inter-vivos, the entire estate may be settled for a waqf but when a testamentary waqf is created, the dedication up to the one-third of the estate of the founder.
