Ruling 2710

If a person endows some property so that the income from it can be used to repair a mosque and be given to the imam of the congregation (jamāʿah) and to the person who says the call to prayer (adhān) at the mosque, in the event that the endower has specified an amount for each one of them, the income must be spent in that way. But if the endower has not specified the amounts, then the income must first be spent on repairing the mosque. And if anything is left over, the trustee must divide it, as he sees fit, between the imam of the congregation and the person who says the adhān. However, it is better that these two people arrive at a settlement (ṣulḥ) on the division of the income.
