    Jazakallahu khairan, brother. Alhamdulilah. So, it seems it is fine to pray behind him and there is no blame upon me.

    Assalaam walaikum,


    In this day and time we options of giving. Some people give yearly to the masjid. Some give monthly.

    There is a zakat box at most masjids, here. It is usually outside the prayer area. Brothers and sisters drop cash into the box prior to prayer.

    Now, in the masjids that I have attended if there is an emergency the imam usually notifies the congregation during the announcement times as to the nature of the emergency. For example if someones house burns down in the community etc.

    Often, the masjid staff is not available to open the offices. Sometimes the treasurer only volunteers on the weekend.

    But, brothers notify the imam. Trust me, if they can listen to the likes of me, they will listen to you.

    wa'alaikum assalaam wa rahmathulahi wa barakathuhu

    sorry for the interruption,but why has there to be a turkish mosque,indonesian mosque etc...why don't all muslims pray in one madjid?

    now my question is,is having different mosques for different nationalities an innovation?

    That has baffled me too. People stick to muslims from their nationality because their language of communication is the same. So, their khutbah is in the language the particular nationality understands. For, e.g. in turkish mosque, the khutbah is in turkish, arabic in morrocon mosque and indonesian in indonesian mosque. However, for me, everything is the same, because I don't understand any of those languages. So, every friday, the khutbah for me is just staring at the imam. One more thing that surprised me, is last year, the turkish mosque had the Eid one day after the morrocon mosque had it. I don't know why. I had to choose between them. I wonder what decision one must take in such situations. I went with the date it was celebrated in Makkah.

    Ya Ershad, pray Salat with them. But leave the masjid if the imam give some dars or reminders. An imam shaving his beard doesnt deserve to give us reminders. The Turkish masjids are Hanafis so they follow Pakistan. They pray Eid a day after us. As do other Hanafis like Bosnians/Albanians/Chechens....

    You could search on IslamQA about praying behind sinful imams, beard, khutbah.

    Assalaam walaikum,

    I have the pleasure of attending masjids where the kutbha is given in English, for at least one service.

    Last week we had a guest imam. He spoke in Urdu. Great, I understood maybe one third of what he was saying. And he spoke forever. So, here I am trying to behave. We had many visitors. I am squished. I am straining my ears as sisters keep walking in and walking in. I am beseeching Allah to forgive me but give me a little knowledge. I am thinking to myself, behave. You must listen and be attentive. I know I suffer from Adult Attention Deficit Disorder..I can not sit still.
    I have no clue. I felt like a Valley Girl in Emerald City. And it does make one feel rather odd.

    In areas where there is a Muslim population but the population is small and diverse here in the US the delivery is in English.

    Why the different masjids. Simple. People feel more comfortable with their own kind. It is the culture. It is a ease factor that is very human. Talk like me, walk like me, and eat like me,

    And then I come along...

    I would suggest one reads the rules of Khutbah, its scope, which sermon is called friday-Khutbah [when it starts and when it ends. Whats an Imaams obligation in Khutbah etc] Its clear out there, its very interesting to know why Imaam does those, All are Prophet :saw: sunnah ...

    Mini collection box trolley

    :salam2:
    If there is collector/collectors walking between rows of people collecting money, that does not look appealing, its distracting indeed.
    Then here is something good I have seen in some mosques...
    Of course , we can always have authorized collectors standing outside with usual collection box, welfare fund receipts/coupons, encouraging others to donate.. as usual

    Hope all this helps.

    Assalamu Alaikkum wa rahamatullahi wa barakatuhu,

    Sorry to stir up this thread again. I came across an article (attached) which says there is absolutely no proof from the salaf for using the donation boxes and also, a fatwaa of Imam Malik (Rahimahullah) saying it is haraam. Allahu A'lam.
