Introduction

5th International Conference on Zakat, Waqf, and Islamic Philanthropy (ZAWFI) 2022 is the fifth series after the success of 1st ZAWFI 2017 (at ACIS, UiTM) and 2nd ZAWFI 2018 (at Hotel Bluewave, Shah Alam), 3rd ZAWFI (at Page Shah Alam, Intekma Resort and Convention Centre) and 4th ZAWFI (online). Therefore, the Institut Kajian Zakat Malaysia (IKaZ), Academy of Contemporary Islamic Studies (ACIS), Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia was called upon to continue the tradition by organizing the ZAWFI to realize the aspiration including the empowerment of its potential hibah and contemporary Islamic philanthropy. 

For the very first time in its history, a special concept has been applied to the ZAWFI 2022 by also calling upon the Invention, Innovation and Design Exposition of ZAWFI (IID @ ZAWFI) 2022 as a competition to expose and share the idea, invention, innovation or design recognition with the aspiration including the empowerment of its potential hibah and contemporary Islamic philanthropy. The researchers, inventors, innovators, and designers are welcomed to join the conference and exposition, to introduce innovative ideas and products, as well as for further global recognition by the authority and experts team.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

“I hope that discussions presented here will be vigorously debated in order for us to see the implementation of endowment in higher education institutions, especially in Malaysia be realized fully as it can certainly accelerate the transformation of higher education. I look forward to the continuing organization of conferences such as ZAWFI to drive home the governance of financial policies that comply with Shariah guidelines and build trust to contribute funding among the community.”

– Emeritus Prof. Datuk Ir Dr Mohd Azraai Kassim
