Taking people for collection and charging a fee

Q: Please tell me like some of the moulanas comes from different countries for collection for madrasahs. If somebody is working as a rehbar to show the moulana from where he can get zakaat, lillaah, sadqa and for this work he is paid some amount on a daily basis is this money halaal for the rehbar?


A: If he is paid from the zakaat funds, the zakaat will not be discharged.

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