Whilst he was on the minbar the imaam
made a mistake, and gave the name of a charitable organization other than the one which he
had agreed to collect donations for after the prayer. Donations were collected after the
prayer – to whom should the money collected be given?
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih
al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:
The money should be given to the organization whose name was mentioned
by the imaam from the minbar.
