Abstract

This article aims to highlight the nature of the relation established over centuries between state and waqf (Islamic endowment). After setting the context of the historical framework that shaped this relation, the article goes on to explore the effects on modern state strategy, originating at the end of the nineteenth century, of administering the awqaf sector, and its consequences for the socioeconomic role of waqf. © 2010 The Centre for Arab Unity Studies.
