Earning From Teaching Islam


I just want to know whether its permissible to teach people and earn as an Islamic teacher.

Is it allowed to take earning whilst teaching Quran and other subject areas of Islam?



There is no problem in earning money as a teacher of islamic sciences.
However you cannot charge money for teaching things that are wajib to teach, for example how to pray, reciting surah al-Fatiha, the fiqh rules that are wajib, etc…

There is no problem in taking money for teaching Quran, unless it is for wajib prayers.
