The paradigm of the Waqf system has shifted from movable and immovable properties such as land Waqf, cash Waqf and others but also to the employment of electronic or e-Waqf system. Thus, the objectives of the current study are to focus on three major research questions which are:exploring the usability of the e-Waqf system in the Nigerian context; determining the challenges of e-Waqfsystem implementation and recommending prospects of e-Waqf implementation for better waqf governance. The study employs a qualitative approach usingsemi-structured interview questions to gather the information from (6) informants of e-banking expertise and (3) Waqfmanagers or “Mutawalli” in Nigeria. Qualitative research methodsare most appropriate in situations in which little is known about a phenomenon or when attempts are being made to generate new theories. The findings of the current study indicate that E-Waqf Implementation/Salman and Others(ISSN: 2413-2748)J. Asian Afr. soc. sci. humanit. 7(4): 41-53, 202142online Waqfhas been established as a viable solution to improve wealth redistribution amongst Muslims in Kuwait and Malaysia. Thus, the Nigeria Waqfsystem could benefit from the existing practices and experiences of those countries. Furthermore, the term Muslims refers to individuals who believe and follow the religion of Islam. Nonetheless, e-Waqfcould contribute to society at large even at its infancy stage and the supports by all parties are necessary to make it feasible at the national level. In this study, online Waqfis generally referred to as Muslims’ donation in the form of cash that is performed via electronic means (e.g. Internet banking facilities). If it is offered through internet banking facilities, online Waqfis therefore viewed as one of the services that are necessary to be provided by Islamic banks
