Can one go to Non-Muslims house for Iftar ?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear Brother Burhan,

Assalaam Wa Alaikum

It is indeed very graceful to read Questions and related Answers received through mail from your Web Site almost every morning. Your quotations are to perfections and may Allah bless you always and provide more and more strength in spreading true teachings of Islam to Muslims as well as Non-Muslims. Jazaakallah Khair ...Inshallah.

 

I would suggest you to give references (if possible) while quoting any Hadith as we copy the content for future use and Deference proves valuable (as also done by Dr. Zakir Naik).

 

I also have a question and would be grateful if you could reply to it at earliest.

 

QUESTION: Recently one Hindu friend invited few Muslim families for Ramadan Iftar as good gesture of brotherhood (without political or diplomatic) intension. Is it permissible to go for such invitation by Non Believer?

 

Wassalam

Answer:

 

Can one go to Non-Muslims house for Iftar ?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. We humbly hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

Jazak Allah Khair for your valuable suggestion, and we assure you brother that we will Insha Allah, always give the reference while quoting anything from Allah and His Messenger (saws). We normally do give the references of everything we quote from the Quran and Sunnah; but being human and thus prone to error, if we have not given the references for any of our quotations, we sincerely and humbly seek your forgiveness and the forgiveness of Allah Subhanah. In any of our past answers, if there is any particular quote of the Quran and Sunnah for which you require the exact reference, we would be more than honored to provide it for you for the Pleasure of Allah Subhanah.

 

Your Question: Recently one Hindu friend invited few Muslim families for Ramadan Iftar as good gesture of brotherhood (without political or diplomatic) intension. Is it permissible to go for such invitation by Non Believer?

There is absolutely no restriction in accepting the iftar invitation of non-muslims, and eating from what they provide, provided the food served is halaal. Muslims are well-wishers and brothers-in-humanity of all mankind, and we are guided by Allah and His Messenger (saws) to be just and kind in our dealings with them. It is only by keeping good relations with the non-believers, can we do daawah to them and invite them to the Truth of Al-Islam.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 60 Surah Mumtahina verse 8: Allah forbids you not with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith, nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
