Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear brother Burhan, Assalam u Alaikum, Many thanks for your valued answers of questions from Muslims. I would like to know that can we donate any used thing to the Mosque, because i want to donate a carpet to a new build mosque. Is`t true or not, please inform us. My best wishes for you and for all muslims.

Can one donate a used thing to mosques?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol,  no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


There is absolutely no harm if one wishes to donate something to a mosque.   If one wants to donate a carpet to earn the pleasure of Allah in the mosques, it is expected that the Merciful Lord will give the brother ajr for every person who prays on the carpet/s.   Whatever a believer spends in the Way of Allah, and whatever good deed one does with the right intentions,  however small or big it may be;  Allah Subhanah will never ever let it go in waste.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verses 261-262:The charity of those who expend their wealth in the Way of Allah may be likened to a grain of corn, which produces seven ears, and each ear yields a hundred grains.  Likewise, Allah develops manifold the charity of anyone He pleases, for He is All Embracing, All Wise.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 2.498         Narrated by Adi bin Hatim heard the Prophet saying "Save yourself from Hell-Fire, even by giving half a date-fruit in charity."


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah¬ís Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your Brother in Islam,
