The study aims to explore the comparison for both two periods of earning status of waqf employee who are directly involved with the activities of waqf estates of Bangladesh. One period for present income and second period for previous income status. The major objective of this study is to compare present income status of the waqf employee and national level income of Bangladesh. The minor objective is to know the socio-economic status of waqf employee group. The methodology of this study is purely analytical. For conducting this work 130 stakeholders have been selected using purposive sampling method from four waqf estates in Dhaka city. The collected data is analyzed with excel program. From the findings of the study, it is found that the average monthly total income as well as monthly additional income from inside and outside of waqf employee of the organization is BDT 26038.46 and BDT 11,717 respectively. However, the waqf employee use these earnings to lead better life that may help to reduce their poverty as well as to improve their socio-economic status.
