Wakaf & Infaq
Wakaf is an Arabic word which may be translated in simple English as endowment. A simple definition of wakaf is the dedication of a property by a person through a will or otherwise for pious purposes, religious purposes or for charitable purposes. In other words, the property is given away for the benefit of whoever as desired by the donor.
A person may also wakaf useful belongings or objects which can be of benefit to other people. With IKHLAS, you may choose which items to be given away as wakaf from our 'Wakaf & Infaq' category. Our trustees will then manage the properties to ensure that the purposes are carried out accordingly.
The Holy Qur'an strongly advocates the giving of charity:
"The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. And Allah gives manifold increase to whom He wills. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower." (Qur'an 2:261).
And in a popular hadith, it is narrated as follows:
"When the son of Adam dies, his acts come to an end except for the following three recurring charities - sadaqa jariya (charity that benefits the community), knowledge that is beneficial and pious children who pray for him."
- Hadith reported by Abu Hurairah
How It Works :
By purchasing any items from the IKHLAS Waqaf category, customers will Waqaf the items through IKHLAS Shop.
All IKHLAS Waqaf purchases will be sent directly via the IKHLAS Digital Sadaqah network to those who are in need with no shipping charges incurred.
In Shaa Allah, blessings and good tidings to those who will join us in this amanah.
** Note that all of IKHLAS Waqaf purchases will not be send to the customers (shipping address still needs to be filled up in the checkout page for IKHLAS's safekeeping). All waqaf items will be sent directly to those who are in need.
