(2) If due to lapse of time or change of circumstances, it is no longer possible beneficially to carry out the exact provisions of any wakaf or nazr am, the Majlis shall prepare or cause to be prepared a scheme for the application of the property and assets affected thereby in a manner as closely as may be analogous to that required by the terms of such wakaf or nazr am, and shall apply such property and assets accordingly.
