Q: For the past few days I was giving sadaqa everyday to needy people, especially cleaners working for Baldiyah. I don’t know if the cleaners are Muslims or non-Muslims. I mostly give sadaqa to them only.
Please let know if the money which I give to non-Muslims as sadaqa is acceptable or I should only give it to Muslims only. I really dont know their religion because they are cleaners who wear the same clothes.
A: Yes, it is acceptable.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
