A waqaf is to transfer the ownership of a particular tangible asset in the ownership of Allah Ta`ala. The benefit and profit of the asset will be distributed and given to the benefit according to the formulated wish of the one who made waqf (waqif). Such that he may limit his waqf to himself, his children, except them or give away to the poor. In any case, any waqf should contain the clause that in the end had there no recipient of the waqf, the benefits of the waqf should go the poor muslims.
