Collecting sadqah for Masjid purposes
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
Sadaqah Wajibah covers 1.Sadaqatul-Fitr 2. Nadhr 3. Fidyah 4. Kaffarah 5. Udhiyyah
These donations should be used for the poor and the needy and can not be used for the Masaajids and Madrasahs.
This covers 1. Lillah 2. Sadaqah Jariyah 3. Sadaqah for the removing of difficulties 4.Sadaqah for the expiation of sins or for repentance
This is general sadaqah and the donations from this can be used for any purpose as long as it is used for something the general community would not have an issue with. The use of these donations for anything inappropriate would be a breach of the community’s trust.
Please note Sadaqah Jariyah needs to be used for causes that have a lasting contribution e.g. prayer mats or masjid construction.
Only Allah knows best.
