Waqf originated from an Arabic term “waqafa” means to stop, to prevent and to detain some commodities in terms of land, mosque, farms and cash for the benefits of society. Each Muslim country globally either in developed, developing or third countries has its way in managing the waqf. However, the understanding of the waqf concept in healthcare delivery system (HDS) is still new in Malaysia. Therefore, there arises a need to further explore on this matter in order to understand its purpose, types of waqf that can be implemented in HDS, the management procedure and the mechanism in sustaining the waqf for future investment. The purpose of this mini-review is to highlight the current gap and the need to establishing a proper model on waqf in a healthcare setting prior to the implementation.
