Waqf (Endowments) means holding things that are eternal, to be taken advantage of for the good and progress of religion, withholding an object that is eternal in substance, meaning that it is not sold and is not given and is not inherited, but is only offered to take advantage of it.
Waqf is a maliyah (money) worship that has great potential to be developed. Property that is represented, the value of the waqf is fixed, while the results of the management of waqf always provide benefits from time to time. Productive Waqf is a scheme for managing donations of waqf from the ummah, namely by producing the donation, so that it can produce a sustainable surplus.
Waqf can be in the form of moving objects, such as money and precious metals, or immovable objects, such as land and buildings. This productive waqf surplus is a source of endowments for financing the needs of the people, such as financing education and quality health services.
Basically, waqf is productive in the sense that it must produce because waqf can fulfill its purpose if it has produced where the results are used in accordance with its designation (mauquf alaih). The person who first carried out waqf was Umar bin al-Khathab, who granted a fertile garden in Khaybar. Then the garden is managed and the results are for the benefit of the community. Of course, this waqf is productive waqf in the sense of bringing economic aspects and public welfare.
