Eating in the Masjid

Q: Some people donate cans of Pepsi in Masjids to be drunk by the people who perform Tarawih (special supererogatory night Prayer in Ramadan) during the nights of Ramadan after Salah. They do so and dedicate the reward to their parents. Is this correct?

A: There is no harm in distributing Pepsi and suchlike in Masjids for those who perform Tarawih as long as this action does not make a mess in the Masjid. Distributing other kinds of drinks other than Pepsi or giving them in charity for poor Muslims is better than Pepsi and more rewardable.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
