Hawzah News AgencyOur neighborhood mosque was rebuilt a while ago.  In the rebuilding process a basement was added, which was initially used as a prayer hall but was later rented out and is now being used as a restaurant.  Is this repurposing permissible?

The additional floors added to preexisting mosques (whether top floors or a basement) that formerly lacked them are deemed consecrated grounds, and thus it is impermissible to lend them or to repurpose them for non-devotional uses such as serving as a restaurant.
