Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the current quality waqf reporting practices by waqf institutions in Malaysia. Five factors that influence quality waqf reporting practices namely relevance, faithful representation, understandability, comparability and timeliness were studied. Twenty items were used to measure the current level of quality waqf reporting practices in all 14 waqf institutions in Malaysia. Results show the current quality waqf reporting practices by waqf institutions in Malaysia are at a moderate level as it only scored 40.29%. Among the five factors, timeliness scored the highest with 54.29% while the lowest score is comparability at 27.5%. Among the 14 waqf institutions, Perbadanan Wakaf Selangor (PWS) achieved the highest score with 82%.On the other hand, there are eight (8) waqf institutions that only scored 20% (all 20 items are scored with one (1) as the lowest score value). This research provides an important extension on previous knowledge and relevant literature of quality waqf reporting practices by waqf institutions in Malaysia. Moreover, this research focuses on the key dimensions of quality waqf reporting practices reported in the literature. This research helps especially the management of waqf institutions to measure their current disclosure level to improve quality waqf reporting practices.
