Waqf – Leave Something For the Sake of Allah
Waqf means putting aside the original property and donating its benefits for the sake of Allah. What is meant by the original property is something from which benefit may be derived whilst its essence remains, such as houses, shops, gardens, etc. What is meant by benefits is beneficial produce that comes from the original property, such as crops, rents, provision of shelter, etc.
Waqf – A Way To Carry On Getting Rewarded After Death
Muslim narrated in his Saheeh that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “When the son of Adam dies, all his good deeds come to an end except three: ongoing charity, knowledge from which others may benefit after he is gone, and a righteous son who will pray for him.” Jaabir said: “There was no one among the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) who had the means, but he set up a waqf.”
We ask Allah to accept our Ibadaat and Sadaqaat and make them an avenue of admitting us into Jannah.
