    • ASA Imam,
      You will have to send an email or call the Islamic Shura Council. I don’t have access to their publications. Jazaaka Allah khairan

  2. Brother Ihsan as u r part of Masjid development cte – pls enlighten us – what legal authority can be exercised if the current Board of Masjid violates the laws and do not vacate and evicts all who ask any questions – how do u deal with them? I heard there was a similar case in South CA as well. We have a problem with a masjid Board members who have forcibly occupied and have violated / changed all bylaws without any general body and have not given any financial disclosures in over 10 years. They r a 501 c3 organization . Most current masjid comers think that those 3 brothers r owners of the masjid and have no clue about what game is being played. Jazakallah for your guidance.

    • I thought masjid network would give some guidance to my query. Still await response. Thanx

      • AsSalaamuAlaykum brother. In the posted YouTube link you can find a lecture that some of the brothers from the Southern California Shura council delivered. Also in the video is a brother who is actually a lawyer and seems to be an expert in the area of masjid affairs. Look there and find his name. Sorry I do not remember his name. The lecture is also informative, but certainly brief considering all of the matters we face.
