Overviewing the State Islamic Religious Councils’ Perspectives on Federal Government Allocations for Waqf Land Development
The willingness of the Federal Government to fund waqf development in the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) has greatly influenced the awareness and efforts to transform the waqf institution in Malaysia. However, a drastic reform was introduced during the Tenth Malaysia Plan (10MP) in line with the government’s transformation efforts has resulted in the application process for the development allocation becomes more difficult to be granted. This has led the State Islamic Religious Councils (MAINs) to no longer apply the budget from the Federal Government. Under this circumstance, this study has established the objective of reviewing MAINs’ perceptions on changes in development provisions implemented by the government. The method used for the study is a combination of document analysis and face-to-face interviews. This study uses content analysis as a method of analysis. The findings show that MAINs has the difficulty to meet all the requirements of the application due to several reasons. Consequently, MAINs has no longer to rely on the Federal Government to get the waqf land development fund and has to explore other suitable financing methods for its development projects.
