Reallocating donations allocated to build a Masjid
Q: Before coming to
I was prepared to travel to
for work. While in
construction works were underway at one Masjid there. I made a vow to donate a sum of one hundred and fifty dinars to this Masjid in case Allah helps me travel to
instead of traveling to Europe. Allah did help me travel to
The next year, I went to the Masjid and found that it had already been established. Do I still have to donate the money to the same Masjid or do I have to donate it to another Masjid in
the West Bank
which is in dire need of money. Lack of donations
is one of the problems we face when intending to build a Masjid in
the West Bank.
Enlighten us, may Allah reward you with the best.
You may donate the money to another Masjid in the
West Bank. You will be absolved of your vow. May Allah accept it from you. However, we advise you not to make further vows. (Part No. 6; Page No. 241) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet muhammad, his family and Companions!
