Abstract

It is very important to reform the waqf land management law in the northern coastal area of Central Java because there are legal issues in waqf land management. This research aims to identify the legal issues of waqf land management in the northern coastal area of Central Java and their solutions. The significance of the research is as a novelty on waqf law enforcement and management so that the waqf land can be managed optimally. The type of this research is field research, and it uses an empirical legal approach. The data employed primary and secondary data. In addition, the data were analyzed qualitatively and concluded inductively. The results show that the legal issues regarding waqf land management in the northern coastal areas of Central Java are, namely: waqf practice occurs orally, the community is not fully aware of the waqf law stipulated by the state, and they have not fully supported the management of waqf land, the heirs' attitude which does not support their heirs as waqif, the nazhir (the waqf manager) resources have not been professional yet, the nazhir's attitude in managing waqf assets which are less transparent and accountable, the legality of nazhir's has not been realized, and PPAIW have not carried out their duties optimally. The solution to the legal issues is to reform the law on waqf land management by improving several aspects: institutions, juridical rules, and nazhir resources.
