Making musjid property a pathway for people

Q: I am from a small village of Kashmir. We have planned to build a jamma masjid in our village. The land adjacent to the old masjid plot is donated by somebody for a madrasah. Can we use a part of the donated land to make an alleyway i.e. a passage to the masjid so that the street becomes a free passageway for villagers on the other side of the masjid. It will become more convenient for passing.

A: It is not right.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
