Building a Musjid with excess Qurbaani funds

Q: A certain organization made public announcements and adverts that they will be using excess Qurbaani funds for the construction of a Masjid in a rural area. Is this permissible or is it based on urf i.e. if people don’t mind then it's fine otherwise it is impermissible?


A: If it is used for musjid construction with the permission of the donor then it is permissible.
