If the amount collected to build a mosque is not enough

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:
We have a donation of 20,000 riyals for building a mosque. If this amount is not enough to build a mosque, is it permissible to use this money for other projects, or can it be contributed to build part of a mosque or to repair an existing mosque?
(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.

You have to look for a mosque for which this amount will be enough, even if that is outside the Kingdom (i.e., Saudi Arabia). If you cannot find anything, you can contribute it towards the building of a mosque, such as buying the land or some of the construction materials, etc.  In this way the person who donated it will attain the reward. And Allaah knows best.   

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.
