This thesis is a study of the classical Islamic Law of Waqf. This thesis is divided into two parts. Part One is focused on the nature of waqf, while Part Two is about the administration of waqf. Part One is divided into two chapters. Chapter One provides a discussion of the nature and the legal principles of the classical law of waqf according to the four Sunni schools of law. It serves as the basis for later discussion and argumentation. The origin of the law of waqf is also discussed in this chapter. Chapter Two focuses on the constituent elements of waqf. It then analyzes the conditions for the validity of the founder of a waqf, the subject of a waqf, the object of a waqf and the declaration of waqf as provided by the classical jurists. Part Two comprises two chapters, i.e. Chapter Three and Chapter Four. Chapter Three discusses the office of the administrator of a waqf (nazir). It explores the discussion of the jurists regarding the role of the administrator of a waqf as well as his limit and power in the classical law. Chapter Four discusses the methods of maintenance and mobilization of waqf property. In tackling both parts a comparative approach has been taken, i.e., a comparison between the four sunni schools in matters concerning the principles of the schools in the classical Islamic law of waqf.
