Wakaf Ilmu

You can reap the benefits of sadaqah jariyah and become a wakif by donating to Wakaf Ilmu today.

Leave a legacy by supporting Islamic education in Singapore

By contributing to Wakaf Ilmu, you will help to:

  • Nurture future imams and religious leaders
  • Empower Muslims to be resilient and filled with taqwa (obedience to God) through Islamic education programmes
  • Provide a stable source of income to madrasahs and reduce the pressure for them to fundraise and seek donations each year
  • Boost social development and social equity for our community

In return, you will receive:

  • Blessings in your life and for your hereafter. As narrated in the Holy Quran (2:274):Those who spend their wealth in charity day and night, secretly and openly—their reward is with their Lord, and on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”
  • A legacy that continues sending you rewards even after your death. As narrated by Abu Hurairah, Prophet Muhammad s.a.w said: "When a man dies, all his good deeds come to an end except three: Ongoing charity (sadaqah jariyah), knowledge from which benefit is gained, and a righteous child who prays for him."

Through Wakaf Ilmu, you contribute sadaqah jariyah, sponsor beneficial education, and benefit from beneficiaries who make dua for you.

Aside from ukhrawi subjects, Madrasah Al-Arabiah emphasises on academic subjects like science and mathematics, and offers STEM programmes such as coding, robotics, and research programmes. We hope to nurture not just asatizahs, but also scientists, engineers, and scholars who will bear the challenges of the 21st century. Support from the community is essential and has made our aspirations thus far possible.”

Through contributions from Wakaf Ilmu, Madrasah Aljunied Al-Islamiah underwent upgrading works in 2017 as the compound we had was almost 20 years old. Besides being worn out over time, our compound lacked facilities and digital capabilities to keep up with the rapid growth of technology. We have since built science labs and classrooms fitted with digital tools, among others, to ensure that our students are more prepared and remain competent in today’s society.”
