Donation from non-Muslim for Masjid

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org
I want to know that accepting donation for Masjid from non-muslim is ok ? In this case the non-muslim person had donated voluntarily to masjid.
If a non-Muslim wants to contribute out of his own will, or with an intention to do good things, to the cause of building a mosque and muslims have not asked him any questions then from the shariah’s perspective that’s fine. It should be born in mind that this non-Muslim contributor is not going to turn around sometime in the future and demand for contribution for his temple etc… one should figure that out with extenuating circumstances.
