CALL FOR PAPERS


BACKGROUND


The development of awqaf projects has become an agenda to enhance the economy of ummah and to boost up the importance of the third sector of economy.  The interest on the subject of waqf is on the rise at the global and national level especially among stakeholders in the Islamic world. His Royal Excellency YM Raja Dr. Nazrin Shah had made this observation in his keynote address delivered at the 5th Securities Commission-Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies Roundtable on Islamic Finance in Kuala Lumpur on 23 March 2014 (New Sunday Times, March 23 2014).  According to YM Raja Dr. Nazrin, several factors have contributed to the success factor of a awqaf institutions which include capital adequacy, governance, legislation, professional, and ethics.  Nevertheless, there is still lack of clear traditional waqf definition and negative perception from the public towards transparency and disclosure as well as improper ways of distributing the waqf efficiently and effectively.

The waqf institution has great potential among other things to provide educational opportunities, support for research activities, employment creation, reducing government responsibilities with respect to operating expenditure and to reduce dependence on government funding.

Many previous studies have recorded success of awqaf institutions that have been managed well for example on education and delivery of socio-economic services to communities. Waqf has also played an important role in the development of the economy of the Muslim ummah. Contributing cash waqf should be encouraged as common activities in the sense that this contribution can strengthen the faith and Taqwa of the Muslim community.

Cash waqf can be utilized to set up caring society and equally attained development goal. Generally, waqf plays an important role in socio-economic of Muslim societies. Waqf give great potential as Islamic system of awqaf contributes immensely into the social welfare of the Muslim community. Thus, the theme of “the sustainability of waqf and Islamic Social Finance in enhancing the development of global ummah” is relevant to the current need and practices.  

The first and second Muktamar Waqf Iqlimi was held in Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia. The third Muktamar was held in Ban Nau Mosque, Songkla Thailand on 13 – 14 October 2016. The third seminar was officiated by His Excellency of Sheikh Aziz Phitakkumpon, Sheikhul Islam of Thailand. Several papers were presented regarding the topic of Waqf, zakat and Islamic philanthrophy.

In conjunction with the continuous support and improvement, awqaf institutions require dynamic and innovation approach that supports the development of waqf institutions from various parties collectively and consistently. This is vital to ensure continuity and sustainability among society and countries. Waqf institutions in Muslim minority countries also need support from Islamic countries to enhance better understanding, sustainable and harmony.

Thus, this fourth Muktamar was propose to be held in USIM to enhance the collaboration with the sole trustee and authority body with regards to boost the awareness of the important of the third sector of economy through Islamic Social Finance.

MUKTAMAR WAQF IQLIMI IV 2017 provides a platform for open dialogues and discussions among policymakers, academics, researchers, practitioners and postgraduate students, to address current and pertinent issues, prospects, challenges and opportunities related to best practices on “the sustainability of waqf and Islamic Social Finance in enhancing the development of global ummah” in the ASEAN region in particular and the World at large.
