Generating Endowments through the Lease (Ijarah) Method for the Sustainability of Private Tahfiz Schools in Malaysia

Interest from the community to enroll into Tahfiz studies contributes to the annual increase of the number of Private Tahfiz Schools (STS) in Malaysia. Most of these STSs are developed from various sources including private capital, student fees, and community assistance such as charity and waqf. However, these institutions may find difficulties to sustain themselves financially amid the increasing management and financial cost. This paper looks into the financial problems that STSs face and to propose a method that can be applied by certain bodies by means of library data collection method. The results of this paper propose an alternative method in developing waqf through the ijarah method that was applied in the Seetee Aisah Waqf Land Development project. Lastly, the implications of this paper may serve in the development and expansion of waqf to the State Religious Council (MAIN) and the sustainability of STSs in Malaysia.
