    Serious question: Who pays the Imam?

    A mosque doesn’t generate any income, people don’t pay regular subscription for being Moslem… so seriously, where does his money come from?

    They pay zakat (alms), I assume, but I don’t know if that’s what would cover the imam’s expenses. I’m not Muslim, so I’m just guessing. By all means, I invite someone more knowledgeable to correct me.

  3. Agony

    Doesn’t look like such a small community’s Zakat(2.5% of your money at most if I’m not mistaken) would cover the minimum wage…

    Although I suppose he also gets free housing there as well as other stuff.

  4. You also have to pay zakat on your jewelry.

    I never heard of an imam paying rent for living at the mosque.

    “Alms are for the poor, the needy, the employees who administer the funds, those whose hearts have been recently reconciled to the Truth, those in bondage, those in debt, in the cause of Allah, and the wayfarer, (thus it is) ordained by Allah, and Allah is most knowledgeable, most wise.” [Surah At-Tawbah (9:60)

    The imam is usually taking some part in administering the funds. But I’ve always known them to be getting an income from the public treasury.

    Hmm… you’re right, where DOES he get the money? Wait… doesn’t Yaser pay him? Wasn’t Yaser the one who asked him to be imam at Mercy town in the first place? I think that was mentioned a few episodes back- actually, maybe a season ago, I’m not sure.
    But it’s definetly Yaser paying him.
