Q: One of our neighbors does the business of Prize Bonds. He performed Hajj and brought zamzam, dates and tasbeeh for us. What shall we do with these items?
A: If he has other sources of income which are halaal and the major portion of his wealth is halaal, it will be permissible for you to accept his gifts. However, if he only earns through haraam or the major portion of his wealth is haraam, then you should not accept his gifts. If you have accepted the gifts, then give it away in charity.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
