About Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board
The doctrine of waqf is interwoven with the entire religious life and social economy
of the muslims all over the world and has laid down the foundation of one of the
most important institution of the community. Considering the number of auqaf throughout
the country and the resources they can generate auqaf can become a strong instrument
not only for the preservation of religious, charitable and philanthropic institutions
but also for the educational and economic development of the community.
The term waqf denotes an endowment which is to be used solely for the purposes recognized
under Islamic Law as pious, religious or charitable. Such an endowment which usually
is a property, is managed by an administrator called mutawalli. The term ‘Mutawalli’
includes, a committee of management.
