The word "Ilmu" means knowledge in both Malay and Arabic.
Similar to mosques, the Madrasahs form an important institution in creating religious leaders for our community.
Islamic Education in the Madrasah provides the religious groundings and education for our community to be resilient, confident and profound with deep taqwa.
To create a sustainable institution our Madrasahs need a stable flow of income for long term survival. Therefore Wakaf, akin to an endownment system, fits this need.
