Is it permissible for a person to earn money by being the imam at a mosque?

Answered by

the Permanent Committee of Saudi Arabia for Fatw√Ę and Research

It is permissible to receive money for being an imam of a mosque. This practice has been going on for ages without any objection from the scholars.

The position of imam is a position of public interest, so whoever assumes it is entitled to financial assistance from the public treasury or from donations.
