Resolutions of Iftaa' Board

Date Added : 28-02-2021

Resolution No.(299) (2/2021), By The Board of Iftaa', Researches and Islamic Studies:

"Investing an Endowed Land in which the Endower's Condition was Unattainable"

Date (14th of Jumada Al-Akhirah, 1442AH), corresponding to (28/1/2021AD).

In its 1st meeting held on the above date, the Board of Iftaa` reviewed the letter No.4/2/3/11669 sent from His Excellency, the Minister of Awqaf, Holy Sites and Islamic Affairs Dr.Mohammad Al-Khalayleh. This letter reads as follows:

We would your Grace to clarify the ruling on the endowment of Mr./Baseem Ali Abdullah Naser , which is a building of three floors on an endowed land (No.2112/Al-Abiad Area/Zarqa). The condition of the endower is to build Sharia school, health center, nursing home or an orphanage in accordance to the attached document of the charitable endowment.

In consideration of that, a committee formed of Endowments Zarqa Governorate was in charge to spectate the aforementioned endowment and the possibility of fulfilling the endower's condition. It turns out that it requires 8000JD cost for maintenance and fulfilling his condition was out of reach for the time being due to several reasons.Thus, the committee decided to invest and lease the building till the condition is fulfilled in order to avoid its damage. We hope your Grace to review this matter on the Board of Iftaa' to issue the Sharia ruling in this regard.

After thorough study and deliberation, the Board decided what follows:

In principle, endowments are to be given and fulfilled based on endower's condition and for the same purpose in which it was endowed in the first place by the former. Due to the fact that fulfilling it is unattainable as mentioned in the above question for compelling reasons, then there is no harm on investing the endowed building in the best manner so long as its outcome is disposed as conditioned by the endower. And Allah Knows Best.
