While embracing the theory of sustainability entailing chief aspects of economics, social and environment as a guiding principle, the study proposes a viable integration of Waqf and capital market instrument of unit trust investments based on the Shariah-compliant. The finding illustrates that there is an essential need for a novel apparatus through the capital market such Waqf unit trust to realize grander Waqf funds accumulation, investment, and distribution.
