WORLD CONGRESS OF MUSLIM PHILANTHROPISTS (WCMP), Kuala Lumpur, 2012

Chair of the Advisory Council. Setting up and moderating three workshops denominated 'The Silver Lining Connecting Awqāf, Zakat, and Islamic Finance' aiming to create an innovative and enticing investment proposition

The three workshops highlighted the interconnectedness and intertwinedness of the instruments and approaches belonging to each thematic area and explored the ways and means to make the Islamic philanthropic endeavours more lasting and effective. The final goal was to create a single and enticing investment proposition by bridging the gap between Islamic modes of finance, social responsibility, philanthropy and the existing Islamic tools of equalization (zakat, sadaqah).

Formal presentations were followed by panel discussions. The issues tackled included the use of:

  • equity for both funding and financing,
  • awqāf estates and cash-waqf to unlock dormant resources,
  • zakat funds to facilitate the disbursement of financing and the participation of the end-users,
  • purpose-built contracts to distribute Shariah-compliant financing,
  • microtakāful policies as risk management tools; the use of available resources for capacity-building initiatives and constant training,
  • Islamic social performance tools to measure the achievement of maqāsid al-shariah and steer the proper course of action.
