Using Zakaat money for a Musjid

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Can we use zakaat money for a musjid?


A: In order for the Zakaat to be discharged, the Zakaat money should be given to a recipient of Zakaat. Through giving the Zakaat money to the Musjid, the Zakaat will not be discharged.

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