Home Q&A General Lending Waqf Items

Q: A mutawalli was asking regarding items made Waqf specifically for the Masjid:
1.  Do the mutawallis have the authority to borrow it out to other people? Eg extra chairs / carpets etc.
2.  Can they give old Quraans to other organizations? The Qurans were given and stamped specifically for their Masjid.

These items may be given or lent to another masjid and not to individuals or organizations. These cannot be loaned or used by individuals out of a masjid unless it was given to the masjid to use as they wish.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
