Nowadays, the application of Waqf in community has become more widespread as a source of community development. The objective of this article is to analyse and examine the related literatures on Waqf towards community development from 2010 to 2020. Descriptive research is employed as the methodology of this article based on a number of literatures on Waqf and community development within a ten-year duration. Exactly 100 articles were gathered from on World of Science (WoS), Scopus, Google Scholar, and Mendeley software using specific keywords, namely “Waqf and Community Development,” “Waqf and Economic Development,” and “Waqf + Community Development.” The selected articles were subsequently analysed using the Statistical Product and Service Solutions (SPSS) software. This study discovered several variables such as the number of publications by year, the number of authors, the subject area of articles, the methodology used, publications based on country, and classification of publications used by the respective researchers. The results showed that most of the previous studies which have discussed Waqf towards community development are more on managerial aspects, suggesting that wider areas need to be explored and discussed.
