    One of the parts that stayed with me is the lack of wakf and the need for entrepreneurial undertakings to take the ummah forward. I’d love to read more about this — I wish there was some written content on this topic. Ustadh Numan is such a visionary, mashaAllah!

      Yeah, a lack of a waqf is unfortunate. However, I’m seeing some communities start them. We’ll have an episode about this in Season 3 insha Allah.
