"He who pays attention to the continuation of my Waqf and who is attentive to increasing their revenues, may his deed be beautiful and acceptable before Allahu ta'âlâ Who is Forgiving and may his rewards be inestimable, may he be guarded and protected from troubles of the world."
For Waqf, by Kanuni (the Lawgiver) Sultan Süleyman Hijri 950 - 1543 A.D.
"It is not halal for he, either Sultan, Commander, Minister, commoner or he of high rank, who believes in Allah and the Last Day, who affirms Hadrat Prophet 'alaihis-salâm who is beatiful and pure, to change, violate, transfer, diminish, turn into another state, cancel, invalidate, neglect or convert this waqf. Whoever changes or cancels or tries to change, to terminate, to cancel one of its conditions or one of its rules by a false interpretation and in an invalid way, he will have taken the responsibility of committing haram, and will have committed a crime. Therefore, may he be penalized by Allah on the day when sinners will be punished, being held from their foreheads. May Malik (the Head of the Angels of Hell) desire to have them, may the Angels of Hell be their keepers, may Hell be their lot. For, the settlement of accounts by Allah is swift. Whoever changes it, after hearing this, the sins are theirs. No doubt, when He reciprocates, there is no loss for those who make good deeds..."

"As for the issues related to the foundations, it is known that foundations constitute an important asset of our country. I hope that all members of Council of Ministers together with the Ministry Of Religious Affairs and even the Supreme Assembly examine this issue with great care and that this great institution is protected from devastation and made useful for our country in order to ensure that our country can benefit from this asset as necessary."
