The unrelated person has no right to investigate the expense details of the committee, the reply given by the Waqf Committee is correct. It is allowable if they get the outside work of the mosque done by a non-Muslim, albeit it is better that all the employees of the Waqf Committee are Muslims. The previous reply given by us is absolutely right.
