Irrespective of the current development, it has been observed that there is no clear view on how far the waqf trustees looking at the needs of the beneficiaries before they developed the waqf land.

Semi-structured interviews were conducted with fourteen MAIN with a total of 21 officers as the respondents of this study. The findings show that there is a lack of study on the needs of the beneficiaries done by MAIN.

As such, a post and prior studies of the needs of waqf land beneficiaries is the way forward in order to improve quality and impact of waqf land development and its benefits to the society.
