Dedicating a Waqf to light the Masjid and feed the fasting people, when its returns will stop after a while

Q 2: I have seventy Riyals as Waqf (endowment) to be spent on the lamps of the Masjid (mosque). Now the Masjid is lit by electricity and the Ministry provides us with any electrical devices we ask for. Is it permissible to buy electrical devices with the money I have instead of asking the Ministry to provide them? If the money I have is insufficient what should I do?

A: You should spend the money endowed for the lamps in the Masjid on buying electrical devices for the Masjid instead of asking the Ministry to provide them. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
