Claiming Ownership Of A Parking Spot At A Masjid

Question

Can a trustee of a masjid claim ownership of a parking spot at a masjid?

Answer

If that piece of land that the person has designated only for his parking also falls under the Waqf property of the Masjid and is not his personal  property, then he will not be allowed to claim ownership of it.
