In contemporary times, Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) in Malaysia has announced that public universities are expected to find alternatives for income generation due to government budgetary constraints. The universities should draw on diverse sources of revenue to ensure long-term financial sustainability of their education system. The inherent features and good track of waqf in the prominent universities in the world is seen as a possible solution to fund public universities in Malaysia. Hence, the Ministry of Higher Education has highlighted waqf as one of the ten shifts in Malaysian Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education). Additionally, MoHE has launched the “University Transformation Programme” (UniTP) Purple Book specifically focusing on enhancing university revenue generation through waqf. The extreme pressure has caused public universities to set up waqf entity towards realizing the government’s aim. The UniTP Purple Book becomes the reference for public universities to set up a waqf entity in their institutions. Therefore, this paper seeks to look briefly into the Malaysian Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education) which outlines various areas for university transformation a well as a brief discuasion about UniTP Purple Book will be made which serves as a guideline to public universities to initiate waqf entity. Besides, this article further investigates the efforts towards realizing waqf funds in public universities as well as the challenges that arise. This study has incorporated qualitative and exploratory approaches. Data collected will be analyzed based on content analysis approach. In conclusion part, the researchers offer some recommendations to face the challenges that occur for future waqf in Malaysia’s higher education. In addition, the landscape of waqf implementation in other Islamic countries such as Turkey could be the best reference for Malaysia to learn from and adapt. More importantly, it is hoped that this paper would contribute to the betterment of waqf implementation in Malaysian public universities.
