Giving Ramadhaan gifts to staff members

Q: We have a non-profitable organization which is run by rental income and public funds. We see to the running expenses of the masajid, maktab and girls madressa. We would like to introduce a Ramadan hadiya for all our staff, for the following reasons: 

  1. Other organizations are offering this which is making it increasingly difficult to employ ulama and aalimat.
  2. The hadiya is not performance based, but it is hoped that their performance will improve.
  3. Our staff can enjoy a comfortable Eid.
  4. Keeping with the generosity of Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in Ramadhaan.

Your assistance in this regard will be highly appreciated.


A: It can be given as part of the wage.

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