Some benefactors donate a roll of cloth as Waqf (endowment) for making shrouds.
If a person dies and his family does not have a shroud at that time, they may take what they need from this roll and make a shroud for their deceased as a loan. Later on, they should return an equal part to the one they took. What is the ruling on this action?
The Committee sees no harm in this action and this kind of Waqf is included in the meaning of Waqf and its rulings. This Waqf resembles assigning a sum of money; gold, silver or something similar, to lend the needy then having it returned. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
