Resolution No.(86) by the Board of Iftaa`, Research and Islamic Studies:

“Ruling on the Revenue Obtained from Investing  Al-Husseini Mosque`s Lavatory“

Date: 26/2/1426 AH, corresponding to 6/4/2005 AD.




Question: What is the ruling of Sharia on the revenue obtained from investing Al-Husseini Mosque`s lavatory; should it be given to the Awqaf Funds Development Foundation, or spent on the mosque`s maintenance, needs and various projects?

Answer: All success is due to Allah.

The Board is of the view that the objective of the Awqaf Funds Development Foundation is to develop the Awqaf {endowments} funds as stipulated in the Awqaf`s law, and not to take their revenues, even if it had made the investment, because the yield must be spent in accordance with the terms of the endowers and the nature of the endowment itself. Therefore, the Board deems that the revenue obtained from investing the above lavatory should be dedicated to Al-Husseini Mosque and to be spent on its maintenance, needs and various projects. And Allah The Almighty Knows Best.
