Masjid Donation Pledge Query

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

If someone pledges £1000 donation to our Masjid and decides to donate £800 with a completed gift aid claim form enabling us to claim £200 from HMRC. Does this fulfil the pledge obligation?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم


As this is a non-obligatory donation, this will fulfil the pledge as long as you are happy with this arrangement. The purpose of the Gift Aid process is to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on the donation by the donor.
