Question By : khaleel husain

There is a Maulana and Mufti in my area. He is Imam and Khateeb in our mosque. He is my close friend, and he is very much sincere. He has planned to establish an English medium school with Islamic environment for poor Muslim children. The school will provide them with primary and higher education. School's environment would be the same which is in madrasas and students' uniform would include kurta, pajama and cap. He will take fees according their financial condition; if anyone can't pay, he will pay from school fund, if anyone can pay half of the fee amount or less, also it would be paid from the fund. He is asking me for aid. I want to do my home waqf for his school. Can I do so? If not, how can I help his school by other sources?
I am asking, for it the unique Madarsa of its kind. Ulama of my city neither agree him nor appose. Kindly reply my question with reference and proof from Quran and hadeeth, I will try to understand the proofs. JAZAKALLAH

The answer to your question is as follows:

Due to the lack of such schools where Muslim children can acquire educations in Islamic environment, Muslim parents are very worried about their children, whether to send them to Madrasa or school. If they send their children to schools, it may harm their Iman. Therefore, there is a dire need for such institutes that can provide Muslim children with the sciences in Islamic environments. It is a good step to school Muslim children in Islamic environment, and people should take part in it by educational aid and encourage such Ulama and help them by possible means. So that Muslim children will be saved from un-Islamic affairs. Therefore, you can help him by your extra home for the same. I find nothing contrary to Islamic theory in it. If you have any doubt, do clarify to me as soon as possible, so that I may understand the thing which makes you worry.
(And Allah knows best)
