Gifts from a person whose income is haraam

Q: Someone who works at a store whose main commodity is alcohol recently went for hajj. When he returned he bought us some dates, a prayer mat, tasbeeh and some zamzam water. Can we use these items knowing his income is derived from selling alcohol?

Bismillaah

A: Abstain from it.

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