What should be done when mosque furnishings are no longer needed?

Is it permissible to move things that have been endowed to the mosque, such as cupboards, if the mosque gets too crowded and the mosque no longer needs them?

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, it is permissible to transfer to another mosque things that have been endowed, if that serves a better purpose. If the mosque no longer needs something, such as furnishings, cupboards, etc., we can move them to another mosque if possible, otherwise, we can sell them and spend the money on the mosque.

If these furnishings were supplied by the Department of Awqaaf, then the Department should deal with them, and do what is best.

Liqa’ al-Baab al-Maftooh by In ‘Uthaymeen, 168.
