Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Sometime our neigbor and us exchange foods, so i wanted to ask you that since she is a Hindu, are we allowed to eat her food as long as it is not from there worship or anything, because most of the food she sends us is vegitable mostly and if there is chicken its halal, because she buys halal chicken , she says its better.
Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,
I pray that this finds you well, and in the best of health and spirits. May Allah grant you all good and success in this life and the next.
There is nothing intrinsically wrong in accepting permissible food from non-Muslims (or giving them food) . Rather, it is praiseworthy to promote good relationships with other faith communities in a dignified manner.
And Allah alone gives success.
