Assisting a non-Muslim lady

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I wanted to ask if helping a non Muslim/Hindu whose husband is dead with financial help, does Islam allow this for me?


A: Shariah commands us to refrain from all areas of doubt and suspicion. Therefore you should not have any dealings with this woman or communicate with her. There are many poor Muslim and non-Muslim men who are in need of financial assistance. If you wish you may assist them

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