Specifically, the study identifies legal risk and threats in Waqf management. It is acknowledged that global development creates borderless phenomenon in all aspects of life, socially, economically, and politically where Waqf must be ready to resist and overcome the challenges. The findings show that legal framework contributes a considerable degree of risks in Waqf management in Malaysia while Islamic fintech has directly and indirectly contributed to the new expectation in Waqf governance and management. Waqf is no more seen as a commodity that may be managed or dealt with in isolation but with synergy and innovation with other social finance products taking all opportunities available in Islamic fintech. Contemporary waqf tapping on Islamic finance is unavoidable and necessary for waqf to remain relevant, sustainable, and functionable beyond providing religious duties and preferences. Having a global standard of practice is necessary in addressing the potential risk in Waqf management.
