KUWAIT CITY, Sep 20: The Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs has urged the religious officials working in revenue-generating roles, to commit to full-time engagement saying failure to do so would result in the suspension of their salary and rent allowance within a week.

The Director of the Support Department at the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs in the Mosques Sector, Faisal Al-Mutairi, said in a letter he sent to the Director of the Capital Governorate Mosques Department, of which Al-Seyassah obtained a copy, that due to the repeated occurrence of some revenue-generating job holders obtaining another job without taking the necessary procedures towards amending the religious job in the assignment memorandum from full-time to part-time, which results in the continued disbursement of the monthly stipend assigned to full-time employees in violation of the payroll system.

To address this concern, Al-Mutairi urged full-time employees in revenue-generating roles to fill a declaration and pledge form regarding their commitment. He requested them to return the form to the support department to facilitate the required actions.

He issued a warning against any delays in signing the declaration and pledge beyond one week from the date of issuance. Al-Mutairi emphasized that the ministry would take appropriate measures, including halting salary payments and rent allowances earmarked for full-time imams and muezzins.
