Supervisor of a waqf asking daa’iyahs to give a monthly report does not detract from their sincerity
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
There is an organization that employs a number of daa’iyahs to work in da’wah, and asks them to submit a report at the end of each month describing their da’wah activities such as lessons, conferences and lectures, to be given to the supervisor of the waqf. Some of the daa’iyahs are reluctant to submit reports and think that it detracts from sincerity towards Allaah and is more akin to showing off.
My question: is this permissible? I mean, asking for a report on da’wah activities – does it detract from sincerity or not?.

Praise be to Allaah.
For the organization that is in charge of da’wah activities to ask for monthly reports on the activities undertaken during the month to submit to the waqf supervisor does not detract from sincerity towards Allaah, and does not come under the heading of showing off if the intention of the daa’iyah is preparing the report is to demonstrate that he has done what is required of him and to allow the supervisor of the waqf to see what he has been doing and ensure that the money paid to the daa’iyahs is being spent appropriately.
In fact, this is something which is required in employment, because it encourages productivity and allows for recognition of achievement, and creates a motive for striving harder. And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.
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.
