Liability For A Loan Used To Build A Masjid


If Zaid has borrowed moneys from various people to buy a land on which to build a masjid (which land and structures become waqf), who becomes liable for paying the creditors? Zaid or the masjid? But the masjid is not a human entity.


From your query we understand that Zaid in his personal capacity has borrowed money. He thereafter purchases a piece of land and donates it voluntarily for the construction of a Masjid. In this case, Zaid will be responsible for paying back the loan that he has taken from the creditors.
