    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1117/730/L=1434) In the above mentioned case, when all the children are local and non-residential, there are no poor residential students on whom the money of fitrah and qurbani skin maybe spent, then it is not lawful for such madrasa to collect fitrah or qurbani skins and use the amount in salary or construction of madrasa. Only poor and needy ones are eligible for the price of qurbani skins and sadaqah fitr and it is necessary to spend such money on them or give the money in their possession.
