Dedicating a Waqf to feed the fasting people in a Masjid while there are no poor people in this village
Your Eminence, I am in charge of a Masjid (mosque) located in the village of
There is a Waqf (endowment) that provides meals for people to break their fast. At the present time, we do not find anyone who deserves the revenue of this Waqf according to the usual tradition.
Please, refer my question to the Department of Scholarly Research, Ifta', Daw`ah, and Guidance. May Allah protect you.

If there are no poor people at the Masjids in the village where the Waqf is made, the revenue of the Waqf shall be distributed among the poor people of the same village because the person who made the Waqf meant to help the poor. Distributing the revenue to the poor will serve this purpose. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
