The imaam made a mistake in naming the charity for which he had been asked to collect donations
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Whilst he was on the minbar the imaam made a mistake, and gave the name of a charitable organization other than the one which he had agreed to collect donations for after the prayer. Donations were collected after the prayer – to whom should the money collected be given?

Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:
The money should be given to the organization whose name was mentioned by the imaam from the minbar.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
