Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Are the vehicles of charitable mosque libraries and charitable organizations considered to be waqfs or not?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him) and he answered as follows:
They are considered to be waqfs, hence the people who donated them are not allowed to ask for them to be returned.
You have donated this car or this vehicle to transfer students or to transfer the dead, so you do not have the right to take it back. Your reward will be ongoing so long as use is made of the object.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
