Besides, a collaborative procurement model comprising of wakaf and zakat authorities and private property developer has been developed and herein proposed. The paper highlights issues and constraints, including those related to the Shariah. The research outcome, concerning the proposed collaborative procurement model, contributes significantly towards empowering wakaf and zakat in the provision of affordable housing for the poor and needy.
