Resolution No. (288) (8/2020) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies: "Allocating a Portion of Waqf Programs` Funds for the Waqf Administrator"

Date: (24/Ramadan/1441 A.H), corresponding to (17/5/2020 A.D)


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

At its session on 24 of Ramadan A.H 1441 (17 May 2020 A.D), the Board considered the letter of His Excellency Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Dr. Mohammad AlKhalayleh. It included the following:  The Ministry plans to grant scholarships at public Jordanian universities to the children of Imams and other workers of the Ministry where (50) scholarships are to be granted per year in various departments. This is of course in accordance with specific regulations issued to this end and in which it is stipulated that the tuition costs will be provided for from the funds of Waqf programs (Educational Waqf Programs) at public universities in cooperation with the Royal Hashemite Court. It is worth pointing that these staff members are in dire need for these scholarships and receive nothing from the funds of the Waqf programs. Could Your Grace clarify the ruling of Sharia on this matter?

After careful consideration, the Board decided the following:

There is nothing wrong with allocating a portion of the Waqf programs` funds for the General Administrator of the Waqf; the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs within the framework of a special system issued by the Ministry to this end and in line with achieving the intended aim. This is based on the view of the majority of scholars who deemed allocating a portion of the Waqf revenues for the Waqf Administrator permissible. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
