The Ruling on Asking for Charity to Maintain the Masjid | Shaykh Ibn Baaz 04Oct2013 05:45 PM

  Questioner: We have a charity box to maintain the masjid and there is a man who is allocated in looking after this box. He takes the collection box around the rows of worshippers before the prayer, especially on Jumu’ah.*What is the ruling on doing this as some of the worshippers feel embarrassed? Shaykh Abdul Azeez ibn Baaz: This requires looking into, since what is implied is that he is asking the worshippers [in a way] which may embarrass or upset them when circling around them and asking them to place money in the box for the masjid,*It would be better if they leaves [asking] this [method].*Nevertheless, the issue [of asking] is wide. Even if the imam announces: ‘The masjid is in need of your help and cooperation’ there is problem in doing this as this is a charitable project.*However, to take the box around their rows may cause some embarrassment. So I think it is better not to do this and instead announce ‘this is a charity box for the masjid for whoever wishes to donate’ This is a more safer and better way. So do not go around amongst them with this box that will upset them.
