Can the Waqf be established to pay for tuition fees of students?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
A Waqf can be established to serve any noble cause such as education, medical treatment or environmental protection. The objective and conditions of the Waqf should be honoured in the best interests of the Waqf and the beneficiaries.
And Allah Alone Knows Best
