Land registration ordered by Government through Law Number 41 Year 2004 about waqf aims to make society to be discipline in implementing of waqf practices. Beside the public order, the registration of waqf land has a positive urgency for waqf land. Either the urgency of waqf land registration normatively, sociologically, or juridically. However, the fact shows that the enforcement indications are still minimal. This fact is due to the lack of Nadzir and wakif (who donates property) understanding about the urgency of waqf land registration. They assume that waqf land that has already recorded administratively by government institution has already registered. While the provisions of agrarian law (lands) are not the case. The interpretation of new land registration is listed in Article Paragraph 1 of Government Regulation Number 24 Year 1997 which requires legal force through the ratification of authority official registration, because it will be used as evidence data. The implementation of land registration will produce evidance sign of land called certificate.
