Can a child make Waqf?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
A child cannot make an asset into Waqf. Islamic law encourages the safeguarding of children’s wealth to ensure they are not exploited or taken advantage of by others. [Hashiyah ibn Abidin]
And Allah Alone Knows Best
