Getting paid to recite the Qur’an

Q: Is it permissable to get paid to recite the Quran even if flights/hotels etc are already being paid for?


A: Flights and hotels are not a payment. It is comparable to the hospitality that is shown to an aalim that is coming to give a bayaan, like feeding him, etc. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
