Previous studies about waqf for forest conservation mostly concentrated on its potential or its prospect for forest preservation or environmental protection. In contrast, a detailed discussion about how to establish a waqf forest to support the SDGs is still noticeably absent. This paper aims to formulate a scheme of productive waqf forests that can help the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To our knowledge, this is the first paper that provides a scheme of productive waqf-based forest. The present study was conducted using a literature study method and interpretative analysis. The result shows that a productive waqf forest should supply not only intangible benefits but also generate tangible benefits that can be used for the waqf forest development. Both benefits which support some main points of SDGs, such as in reducing poverty and hunger, maintaining climate, health, biodiversity, and water supply, are mainly delivered to the mauquf’alaihi.
