Off the back of overwhelming demand the people behind Ethis Ventures are revitalising Waqf for the benefit of the Ummah, and we’re thrilled to have some really influential supporters who believe in what we’re doing.

If you love what we’ve done for #islamiccrowdfunding and #islamicfintech you are going to totally be head over heals that we’re tackling the ancient noble institution of Waqf.

We rushed this to be ready for Ramadan so will be adding content as quick as we can.

Since you know we’re Muslims dedicated to pleasing Allah swt and serving the Ummah you can trust that we take this seriously. We have Taqwa and are working day and night to bring the most transformative Waqf experience we can to you.

For now know that industry heavyweights support us, and inshaAllah, you will too!

We’ll keep adding content and explanations so please continue to check back regularly and provide us with your email so that we can keep you updated.
