This study aims at exploring and evaluating the growth and distribution of scholarly publications relating to waqf using the evolving Bibliometrics technique for the period 1914-2019. For the established period (1914-2019), a total of the 476 scholarly papers were extracted using Scopus database. Basic inclusion and exclusion criteria were applied to ensure the theme of the study is critically analyzed. This study analyzes the documents based on various bibliometric measures such as year wise growth of publication, most productive waqf authors, productive countries in waqf publications, most productive waqf journals, leading sponsors organization on waqf, identification of important authors' key words in waqf publications, and characteristics of highly cited waqf publications. The adopted bibliometric analysis helps determine special trends in waqf and provides a basis for more waqf multidisciplinary collaboration and research. Among the findings: Journal of the Economic and Social History of the Orient is the journal with the highest number of waqf scholarly publications within the designated period; Timur Kuran is the author with the highest number of publications on waqf while 2018 and 2017 recorded the most number of publications on waqf. Waqf authors from Asian countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia and Turkey have high level sponsor support. This study only explored Scopus online database to harvest scholarly publication on Waqf.
