Taking a remuneration for collecting money for a school

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: With a lot of effort, I collected around $1500 for some civil work for an Islamic school. I left all my work for around a month and got all the work done under my presence. Some time I stood there for the whole night. Finally the whole work done was wondeful.

During this one month I earned nothing, kept away from my struggling business. In this case will it be allowed if I keep just $80 out of contribution for myself?


A: We suggest that you speak to the school management. They should remunerate you for your work.

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