Wakalah (Agency) Literally, the term wakalah or wikalah is a noun of the word wakkala which has several meanings, including performing a task on behalf of others, preservation and delegation of a job to another. Technically: a wakalah refers to authorising another person to undertake any dealings on one's behalf. According to the AAOIFI Shari'ah Standard, Standard No. 23, Clause 2/1, wakalah is the act of one party delegating the other to act on its behalf in what can be a subject matter of delegation. The wakalah is basically a nonbinding contract, whereby the principal or the agent may withdraw at any time by a mutual agreement, unilateral termination, discharging the obligation, destruction of the subject matter and the death or loss of legal capacity of the contracting parties.
