To Construct a Mosque on a Land that is Devoted to the Mourning Ceremonies held for Imam Husayn (‘a)

Is it permissible to build a mosque on a land that is devoted (as waqf) to the mourning ceremonies held for Imam Husayn (‘a)?

If it is possible, rent the land for the purpose of building the mosque from its custodian, and if there is no custodian then rent it from the religious authority and some of trusted people of that neighborhood need to sign that contract in order not to be forgotten. So, each year the rent that is paid must be used for holding mourning ceremonies for Imam Husayn (‘a). Moreover, the duration of the rental agreement should be specified and limited so that it can be renewed after the expiration of that period.

Repairing the Mosque based on the Decision of the Board of Trustees

Is it permissible for the board of trustees of the mosque to act for the repair of the mosque and the other issues related to it without the permission of the custodian of the mosque?

Precaution demands that the permission of the custodian be obtained but if the custodian of the mosque disagrees with what is in the interest of the mosque or he doesn’t pay attention to them, the board of trustees can obtain the permission of the religious authority in that matter.

Building Shops and Malls in the Underground level of the Mosque

If a mosque is situated a few meters above the ground and it doesn’t have an underground floor is it permissible to build a shop under the mosque and sell its right of trade and consume the money for the mosque?

It is not permitted, but if the person who devoted the land for the mosque has allowed it, it will be permissible. However, there is no issue with constructing things like libraries in the basement of the mosques.
