Question : #397 Category: Social Interaction
Subject: multipurpose halls
Question: Is it allowed to rent out a matam building for holding wedding parties? If not, can the person who uses the matam for the same purpose (without the intention of renting) pay an amount that he likes as a donation for the matam?
Answer: If the building of the matam is endowed for holding religious and cultural ceremonies, it is neither permissible to rent it out nor to use it for free for wedding parties. If somebody uses it for a marriage ceremony, he does what he is not allowed to do even though he pays an amount to those in charge of it later; then in case this amount is intended to be in return for using the matam for wedding, it is impermissible to take it from him; while if it is given as donation for the matam, there would be no objection to receiving this money and spending it on matam needs.
