Manager of a Haraam restaurant that serves alcohol being appointed as the trustee of a Musjid

Q: Can a person serve as a mutawalli at the mosque if he is a food and beverages manager in a hotel which serves non-halaal foods and alcohol?


A: Such a person should not be appointed as a mutawalli of the musjid.

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