Masjid Funds usage

Question: Is there any shariah masala if one masjid donates its own money to another masjid? Eg: Masjid B needs funds for construction and Masjid A has excessive funds, can Masjid A give its money as a donation to Masjid B? بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


If Masjid A’s excessive funds are money donated by the people, and it currently does not need these funds nor will it need them in the future, then it may give the funds to Masjid B on the condition that the people who donated the funds to Masjid A give permission. Without their consent, it would not be permissible because they donated the money to be used for Masjid A, not Masjid B. Also, the funds contributed to Masjid A belong to the donors, hence the Masjid must spend the money according to their wish, e.g. if they contributed money desiring that it be used for construction, then it must be used for that purpose.
