  • A COMPARISON BETWEEN OTTOMAN CASH WAQFS AND MODERN FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS
           BETWEEN 15th AND 19th CENTURIES

    • Authors: Cem Korkut; Mehmet Bulut
      Abstract: Most of the services provided by modern states to their citizens today were provided by the waqfs during the Ottoman period. The fact that the influence of Islamic religion on the social life was high was one of the most important factors driving people to establish the waqfs. The waqfs founded by philanthropists financed such social needs as religious services, education and infrastructure. The cash waqfs (CWs) were one of the waqf types that financed the needs of the society. The CWs whose capital was cash money provided financial sources to entrepreneurs who were in need of cash according to Islamic methods. The CWs continued to function until the last period of the Ottomans. That the Ottomans used CWs to carry out the functions of the modern financial institutions of Europe is important to understand the Ottoman economic and financial mentality. By using the primary sources, this study aims to analyze the Ottoman economic mentality through studying CWs. In addition, the financial institutions operating in Europe in the same period will be examined and a comparison will be made between the two economic mentalities.

  • SOCIO-ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF CASH WAQFS AT OTTOMAN MACEDONIA UNDER THE LIGHT
           OF WAQFIYYAS (1506-1912)

    • Authors: Bora Altay; Mehmet Bulut
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to carry out a socio-economic analysis of cash waqfs by using the registers of waqfs (establishment contracts of cash waqfs), which were active in Macedonia during the Ottoman period. 83 cash waqfs were established between 1506 and 1912. In line with the data obtained from registers of waqfs, the demographical characteristics of the founders and their capital amounts, rates of profit shares and returns have been analyzed in relation to the wages. As a result of these analyzes, it has been found out that the returns obtained from cash waqfs were transferred to the investment and expenditure on a large scale and excess money was given as wages. It has been discovered that only half of the wages were allocated to the members of the family as wages and that cash waqfs operated in accordance with the purpose of their establishment.

  • WAQF, ECONOMY AND FINANCE IN THE OTTOMAN CIVILIZATION OF THE BALKANS

    • Authors: Mehmet Bulut
      Abstract: Although it has inherited the whole experience of the prevailing civilizations, every civilization has its own conception on human being and society. Again, every civilization builds an institutional structure according to the conception of this human being and society. This conception is manifested both in every aspects of daily life and in the institutional structure from military to economics, from culture to politics, and from literature to financial space. Taking into account their previous experiences the Ottoman civilization in the Balkans has also been institutionalized and developed according to its conception, worldviews and values adopted in order to reach the centered people of the country and the societ. It can be said that after the Ottomans moved from Anatolia to the Balkans, they built a Waqf Civilization in Europe. With the Ottoman Balkan conquests, the obvious effects of this waqf concept affected the supplying the needs of people and societies such as cultural, religious, social, economic, commercial and financial, in the Balkan geography. The Ottoman Empire, which included the Cash waqfs (Vakf-ı Nukud) for this understanding of the foundation and its conception, played a prominent role in the institutionalization of Islamic economics and finance from the early modern times to the present times.

  • PLACE OF CASH WAQFS IN THE BALKAN HERITAGE OF THE OTTOMAN STATE: PRIZREN
           EXAMPLE

    • Authors: Ahmet Demir
      Abstract: The Ottoman State began to conquer the Balkans from the second half of the fourteenth century. Following each conquest, the Ottomans developed strategies along with the resettlement policy. In this context, they pursued a pragmatic policy to adapt the social, economic and cultural conditions of each conquered land to their administrative structure. The Ottomans used many instruments to reinforce the structure they established in the Balkans. Waqfs were one of the most important of these instruments. In this study, Prizren, which was an important city of Kosovo, one of the regions the Ottoman Empire attributed great importance, has been chosen. This choice can be justified on the ground that the city had been the place of the Ottoman Rumelia Governor for a long time and played an important role in the Ottoman plan of expanding toward the Central Europe. The Ottoman statesmen and philanthropists who constantly supported the development of the city tried to establish a solid structure in Prizren through the waqfs they founded. Money waqfs had an important place among these waqfs and they contributed to the development and the vitality of the region and to the continuity of charity works. In this study, money waqfs belonging to Prizren are studied and assessed by using documents in the Archives of Cultural Registration Office of the General Directorate of Foundations.

  • ROLE OF CASH WAQFS ON EDUCATION FOUNDED BY WOMEN IN RUMELIA

    • Authors: Rahman Ademi
      Abstract: In the Ottoman Empire, waqfs were non-profit organizations which were established to meet the basic needs of the Ottoman society in the fields of religion, education, culture and health. In conjunction with requirements of the time, waqfs became the financial source of economic and commercial life in the 16th century after they became prominent with debates in the society and with religious permission of Sheik al-Islam and approval of the Sultan. Although waqfs and cash waqfs were not able to solve the inequality in distribution of income, which existed much or less, they played a vital role in terms of keeping it at the level of society’s limit of tolerance. In addition to Ottoman men who were chief actors and main bearers of the waqf institutions, Ottoman women fulfilled their duty on this matter properly as well. In addition to the Sultan and other members of dynasty who tried to meet the needs of society in accordance with the Turkish tradition, high rank Ottoman bureaucrats and their families pioneered the establishment of cash waqfs. Waqfs, especially cash waqfs were founded by women in the Ottoman Rumelia region to support education. In this study, 11 waqfiyahs, which were not published before and belonged to the period from the second half of 16th century to the beginning of the 20th, century will be examined.

  • THE CASH WAQFS IN DRAMA ACCORDING TO WAQFIYAHS IN THE ARCHIVE OF THE
           DIRECTORATE GENERAL OF FOUNDATIONS

    • Authors: Mehmet Doğan
      Abstract: Cash waqfs were charitable endowments whose capital was cash money. The most distinctive feature that distinguished these waqfs from other waqfs was that they were made up partially or completely cash money that was been donated to be operated. These waqfs were founded mainly for religious and social purposes. They were established by people belonging to all sections of the society in order to meet common needs of people in a particular village or district and to strengthen cooperation and social solidarity among them. Cash waqfs played an important role in meeting the needs of religious institutions such as mosques and masjids, and in ensuring the continuity of such works as fountains, waterways, bridges etc. Between 1690 and 1913, a large part of the capital and income of the 17 cash waqfs in Drama consisted of cash money. It seems that the capital of waqfs was generally provided by one person. Care was taken to ensure that the incomes of the waqfs were spent in accordance with the conditions existed in the waqfiyyah. These 17 waqfs performed important functions in Drama’s neighborhoods and villages, mainly in continuing certain activities, including meeting the needs of religious institutions.

  • AN EVALUATION ON MONEY OPERATIONS METHODS OF CASH WAQFS

    • Authors: Aydın Kudat
      Abstract: Real estate waqfs which operated insitutions such as madrasahs, souphouses, hans, mosques, and hospitals had been active in the fields of education, religion and charity. These waqfs which tried to meet institutional needs of the society generally consisted of real estates. In close connection with these waqfs, there were their sections, which contributed to the emergence of cash (nukud) waqfs to meet educational, religious, social and economical needs of the society and to ensure the maintenance of waqfs by providing their supplies. The waqfs other than real estate waqfs were generally established to serve the second aim. The cash waqfs which had many different functions constituted the majority of these waqfs which provided indirect services. These waqfs had been more active in meeting minimum needs of the society in accordance with its social situation and in producing goods and services for this purpose. The waqfs were the part of charity works within Islamic civilization and helped to fulfill financial requirements of Islam. They had a unique composition and a unique method of operation. Nevertheless, a rich theoretical and practical corpus was created around this organization, beginning from the codification period of the fiqh. Waqfs were non-profit instiutions; they were not supposed to create any financial gain for their founders. They would work only to meet the needs of the society. Especially, with the widespread use of cash waqfs, waqfs had an important place in economic life to realize this aim. Within this rich cultural heritage, it is possible to find money operation methods in cash waqfs similar to those in other financial institutions. In this article, money operating methods of cash waqfs will be studied.

  • COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF OTTOMAN CASH WAQFS AS A MICROFINANCE MODEL: CASH
           WAQFS OF EDIRNE, PLOVDIV, THESSALONIKI, TEKIRDAG AND SKOPJE

    • Authors: Mehmet Tuğrul; Mehmet Bulut
      Abstract: Various studies showed that Balkan cities began to experience a rapid social, economic and administrative development with the conquest of the Ottomans in the 1300s. The most important data is obtained through waqfs and waqf registers while the development of the Balkan cities is studied. Cash waqfs, which were a type of waqf institution, played an important role in constructing and operating inns and caravanserais, in supporting small or large entrepreneurships, in creating business partnerships and in advancing many other economic activities. In order to study such issues, the waqfiyyahs from GDF Archives and the sharia registers have been searched. Based on the findings, cash waqfs which were established in the Ottoman Balkan cities (Bulgaria’s Plovdiv, Macedonia’s Skopje, Greece’s Thessaloniki and Turkey’s Edirne and Tekirdağ) will be analyzed comparatively as a microfinance model.

  • REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS FOR BORROWING WAQF MONEY AT THE RUMELIA IN THE
           OTTOMAN PERIOD

    • Authors: Hüseyin Çınar; Hüseyin Çınar
      Abstract: With their peculiar practices, cash waqfs had a separate place among other devoted properties in the Ottoman period. The center of the discussions on the cash waqfs had been the legal aspect of devoting cash and some administrative and financial methods that were used in practice. In the Ottoman Empire, the practices of cash waqfs had frequently been seen in a period exceeding five centuries. In fact, in many cases, the only source of income for many waqfs had been the devoted cash. How were the rules of borrowing or operating money, which is among the income sources of the waqfs in the Rumelia/Balkan geography in the Ottoman period, included among the demands/ requirements of the founder' In this study, using the waqf charters (waqfiyahs) in the Archive of the Directorate General of Foundations, the ways of borrowing money from the waqfs that were founded in the Rumelian territory of the Ottomans will be discovered and assessed. Thus, the methods and conditions which were resorted to by waqf founders to lower losses while waqf money were used will be revealed to a certain extent and the inner world of the waqf founders will be investigated.
