The brothers at albaseerah have always maintained a level of transparency and have attempted to seek advice from the scholars at every opportunity. Here we present a question that we posed to Shaikh Saalih al Fawzaan (before the opening of the masjid).

The Question: This is a question, he says (the questioner), from a Muslim community living in the West. The questioner says: We bought a building with the intention to change it in to a masjid. We bought it with a loan of 100,000, taken from the Muslim community. And we haven't opened the masjid yet.
His question: If we are unable to pay off this loan, is it permissible to close down the masjid after we have completed its set up and began establishing the prayer therein? And what is your advice for us?

The Answer: No. The masjid is not to be closed down. However, you are to seek (financial help) from the Muslims. You are to seek aid from the Muslims. And the Muslims, if Allaah wills, will not let you down. Seek help from the good-doers and the tradesmen (businessmen) and they will not fall short in this, in the affair of the masjid.

Waffaqallahu al-jamee'

This question was put forward by our brother Abu Humaid on the 21st February 2011 after the tafseer dars of the shaikh (after maghrib), in the city of Riyadh, KSA.

As-Salaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa baarakaatuhu

May Allaah preserve our brothers in Bradford!

Shaykh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him) said,

...However, you are to seek (financial help) from the Muslims. You are to seek aid from the Muslims...

So will they now begin to say that he (the shaykh) has deviated? As organisation/s much inferior in rank have been classed as deviants for this i.e asking the worshippers of a Masjid to assist in maintaining the running of their (the worshippers) Masjid...

We know quite the contrary that he hasn't or the organisations who sincerely ask the people! We hope the trouble makers attain humility in this regard.

We put our trust in Allaah alone who at times aids us through His creation...
