Following questions arise from above question

1. Have the reserve and fund you mentioned above is created specifically for construction of the mosque?
2. Secondly what is the nature of the trust itself, is that trust created specifically for runing and mainatainance of mosque?
3. What is the nature of expenses you mentioned are they of capital in nature or of revenue in nature

<u></u><b><font color="red">What Does Reserve Fund Mean?</font id="red"></b>
An account set aside by an individual or business to meet any unexpected costs that may arise in the future as well as the future costs of upkeep. In most cases, the fund is simply a savings account or another highly liquid asset, as it is impossible to predict when an unexpected cost may arise. However, if the fund is set up to meet the costs of scheduled upgrades, less liquid assets may be used.
