While, VOSviewer is software for analyzing bibliometrics in order to find research novelties that have not yet appeared in the realm of science and knowledge. This study aims to analyze waqf education on Google Scholar from 2019 to 2022. This study aims to analyze the bibliometrics of waqf education on the Google Scholar data research. The research method used is using the publish and perish application to collect reference data for the last four years from 2019 to 2022. Then use the VOSviewer application to analyze the bibliometrics by referring to the results generated from the publish and perish application in the form of *.ris and *.xls files. The research findings show that there were 494 publications during the last four years for the 2019-2022 period in the field of waqf education with a total of 734 citations. As for the number of interconnection relationships between terminology in the existing research, it was found that the strongest number of relationships was term waqf of 356, cash waqf of 114, asset of 96, waqf of fund 75, and manager of 73.
