Walima and Unlawful Income

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: I have a close friend who is inviting me for a Walima eating. I know that his income is not halal. So, should I go to the walima or avoid it?

A: In income the majority is counted. If the majority of his income is haram (unlawful) then it will be considered haram and if the majority of his income is halal (lawful) then it will be considered halal. So in the above-mentioned case, when you are sure that the major part of his income is unlawful it will not be allowed for you to attend his walima feast. (Aalamgiri 5:343)
