Abstract

The Halilurrahman Waqf, located in the city of Hebron, contains the al-Khalil Mosque and public kitchen of al-Khalil, built on the tombs of many prophets, importantly the Prophet Abraham. This waqf, which receives most of its income from rural resources, affects and supports the regional economy. This study aims to examine the economic and social structure of the waqf, the continuation of the services it provides, the employment volume it generates, and the prices and fees of the period through the accounting records of the waqf dated 1117-1118/1705-1707 and 1118/1707-1708.
