Throughout Islamic history, Waqf(Islamic endowment) has played an important role and gives positive impact on the community, especially on the socio-economic aspect. This has been made possible by having appropriate management and financing of the Waqf properties in order to improve the socio-economic growth of the Muslims. However, the implementation and manage-ment of Waqfproperty in Sri Lanka have witnessed a considerable deterioration since the last amendment of the WaqfAct in 1982 but not all. This study analyses the Waqfmanagement in Sri Lanka concerning the development of leases of Waqfproperty. It discusses the application of the current Waqflease and identifies the contemporary challenges as well as issues of the Waqflease Act and its practices. It adopts a doctrinal analysis of the primary and secondary data and documents including statutes, practices, case law, and reports. The findings of this investigation show there are positive and operative management of Waqflease, but overall awareness and specialist understand-ing are also important since Waqflease requires sustainable support and cooperation from the com-munity, private sector and the government.
