Food which people of other religions have done prayers upon

Q: I live in India. There are lots of religions around us. If they give us any food items with love which will is from their prayer place, should we consume it? Is there any problem in mingling with them.



  1. You should refrain from eating that food upon which they have done prayers.
  2. Apart from necessity, a Mu’min should not associate and befriend the kuffaar.

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

لا بأس بأن يكون بين المسلم والذمي معاملة إذا كان مما لا بد منه كذا في السراجية (الفتاوى الهندية 5/348)

عن عامر قال سمعت النعمان بن بشير يقول سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول الحلال بين والحرام بين وبينهما مشبهات لا يعلمها كثير من الناس فمن اتقى المشبهات استبرأ لدينه وعرضه ومن وقع في الشبهات كراع يرعى حول الحمى يوشك أن يواقعه ألا وإن لكل ملك حمى ألا إن حمى الله في أرضه محارمه ألا وإن في الجسد مضغة إذا صلحت صلح الجسد كله وإذا فسدت فسد الجسد كله ألا وهي القلب (رواه البخاري 1/13)
