Administration of Wakf in India

Administration of Wakf in India
Usually a wakf has a range of beneficiaries. Thus, the founder makes arrangements beforehand by appointing an administrator (called nāẓir or mutawallī or ḳayyim) and lays down the rules for appointing successive administrators. The founder may himself choose to administer the wakf during his lifetime. In some cases, however, the numbers of beneficiaries are quite limited. Thus, there is no need for an administrator, and the beneficiaries themselves can take care of the wakf (since they are regarded the virtual owners).
