Food quota

(Part No. 14; Page No. 26)  A: If those who are absent and participate in this so-called fund, do not mind using this money in purchasing slaughtered animals during their absence, then it is permissible. If they refuse and every attendant pays for their food and for their guests' food without making the absent pay for anything, then this is also permissible. Otherwise, it is not permissible. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
