Resolution  No.(203) (13/2014)

 Ruling on Giving the Imam and the Mo`azin a Bonus from the Revenue of an Endowment(2014)

Date: (25/Shawal/1435 A.H); (21/8/2014 A.D)

 

All praise is due to Allah, peace and blessings be upon Prophet Mohammad and upon his family and companions:

The Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies reviewed, in its tenth session held on Thursday(25/Shawal/1435 A.H)-(21/8/2014 A.D), the formal letter of His Eminence, the Secretary-General of the Ministry of Religious Endowments, and it reads as follows:

Would Your Grace be kind enough to clarify the Sharee`ah ruling on the permissibility of paying a monthly bonus to the Imam and the Mo`azin of Al-Bahir Mosque from the revenue of the stores located under it ?

After careful study and deliberation, the Board decided what follows:

There is no harm in paying a bonus to both from the revenue of this

blessed endowment(Waqf) in line with the condition made by the Waqif(Founder of the Waqf) mentioned in the enclosed document of the Waqf: “ The revenue of this building is to be completely spent in favor of Al-Bahir`s mosque, and at the disposal of the committee in charge of it.”

 

In other words, the mosque`s committee enjoys the authority of determining the channels of disbursement that it believes to be in the best interest of the mosque. Accordingly, it is Islamicaly and rationally acceptable for the committee to regard paying the bonus as an apparent interest of the mosque`s since it encourages both of them to exert all their efforts in serving the prayer performers and delivering the message of the mosque honestly and sincerely through making use of being devoted and self-sufficient. Nevertheless, it is imperative that coordination is established with the Ministry of Religious Endowments in order to obtain the special permit since it enjoys the general guardianship over all the Awqaf(Endowments), and in order for this matter to be done in line with the blessings of the officials in charge and with complete honesty, Allah willing. And Allah knows best.

Head of the Iftaa` Board, The Mufti General of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, His Grace Sheikh Abdulkareem Al-Khasawneh.
