  1. Many imaams allowed a clean shaven qari from Egypt to recite in their masjid. Is this acceptable?

Raffle ticket system for Donations

Q: I work for a fund-raising organisation called the RSL (Returned Services League). It is 100% charity based. We help Australian war veterans and their families. I work in the telephone marketing team which calls RSL members and asks for donations. We use a raffle ticket system where the donators purchase a $5 ticket which puts them in the draw for a house plus other prizes like gold or cash. All proceeds from the tickets go to charity and to run the organisation. Is this a type of gambling? Am I allowed to continue this job?
