Waqf is the practice of giving up property that can be used to share its benefits with the purpose of drawing closer to Allah SWT, where the waqf property must be permanent, waqf property cannot be sold, inherited, taken back, or reserved because it belongs to Allah SWT forever. The rewards for those who perform waqf will flow and last as long as the waqf property can still be benefited. The fuqaha argue that waqf is the only jariah (permanent) form of charity because the concept of waqf is permanent in nature.

Sadaqah is the practise of donating any kind of property to the poor, the needy, orphans, or anyone who wishes sincerely for Allah SWT and is rewarded by Allah SWT. Sadaqah can be done in the form of food, clothing, money, or permanent property.

A Corporate entity would be able to contribute through E-pay@UM (https://epay.um.edu.my/). If the contribution amount is significant and there is a request for media coverage, you may contact the Secretariat of UM Waqf to assist where necessary.
