Recognised as the most notable expression of Islamic philanthropy, waqf is the voluntary, permanent and irrevocable dedication of a portion of one’s wealth – in cash or kind – to Allah. Standing out as one of the greatest achievements of Islamic civilization, waqf is a philanthropic foundation, with the mission of maximizing the value of endowments.
It is for this reason, FINTERRA is organising the International Waqf & Blockchain Forum to showcase new opportunities and possibilities available through the use of blockchain technology to facilitate in the development and sustainability of Waqf.
With the theme of “Harnessing the Power of Blockchain technology for the Global Development of Waqf”, this forum will serve as a platform to explore the boundaries of new waqf developments and initiatives. It will shed light on new thoughts and ideas, in the quest for transformation and management of a sustainable socio-economic path for Muslim nations across the entire globe. The overall objective of International Waqf and Blockchain Forum 2018 is to establish clarity and a collective understanding of the potential of blockchain technology for supporting the facilitation and development of waqf on a global scale whilst also promoting new economy alternatives to enhance Muslim unity.
