The Quran says mushriks impure najis
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 28:
28 O ye who believe! Truly the mushriks (polytheists) are Najas (impure, unclean, etc.); so let them not after this year of theirs approach the Sacred Mosque. And if ye fear poverty soon will Allah enrich you if He wills out of His bounty, for Allah is All-Knowing All-Wise.
My dear and respected brother in Islam, there is no person who was ever blessed to walk on this planet earth who feared Allah Subhanah more, or loved Allah Subhanah more, or understood and implemented the Commands and the Guidance of the Glorious Quran more than the noble self of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 157:
157 Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet (Mohamed (saws)) whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures); in the Torah and the Gospel; for he ( Prophet Mohamed (saws)) commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil: he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); he releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honor him, help him, and follow the Light which is sent down with him, it is they who will prosper."
As much as Allah Subhanah Declares in Truth in His Glorious Quran that the mushriks are najas, there are several instances recorded in the authentic and established Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) used to meet the disbelievers, sit and talk with them, visit their houses, eat and drink the lawful food presented by them, etc..and when some amongst the foreign mushrik delegations used to come to Madinah to visit him (saws), he (saws) would lodge them in his own mosque, The Al-Masjid al-Nabawi itself!
It is absolutely evident from the practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws) that the Najas or impurity of the mushriks Declared by the Lord was not necessarily in their physical selves, but rather in their spiritual selves and in their polytheist beliefs.
Your Question: ..we cannot alow them to prepar any food or wash our clothes becouse of najish. how we eat there food which is prepair by them. this is very sencitive issue you cant misgiued . or misunderstan peopel like this najis never be paak so how it is posibel to halal hope u explain to us.
Respected brother in Islam, we absolutely assure in light of the Guidance of the Holy Quran and the practice of the Noble Messenger of Allah (saws) that it is not unlawful in Shariah to eat of the lawful food prepared by the disbelievers, nor is it unlawful to wear the clothes which are made or washed by them!! Their najas-ath or impurity Declared by the Lord Most Majestic in His Glorious Quran is related to their spiritual impurity and not their physical impurity.
As long as the food itself is lawful in its essence, absolutely regardless of who prepares that food.that food will be deemed lawful for the believers to consume; and if the food is unlawful in its essence, absolutely regardless of who prepares that food, that food will be deemed haraam for the believers to consume..and this is something regarding which all the scholars and jurists of all the major schools of thought in Islam are unanimous in their opinion.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verses 118-121:
118 So eat of (meats) on which Allah's Name has been pronounced (at the time of its slaughter),if ye have faith in His Signs.
119 Why should ye not eat of (meats) on which Allah's Name has been pronounced when He hath explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you except under compulsion of necessity? But many do mislead (men) by their appetites unchecked by knowledge. Thy Lord Knows best those who transgress.
120 Eschew all sin open or secret: those who earn sin will get due recompense for their earnings.
121 Eat not of (meats) on which Allah's Name has not been pronounced (at the time of its slaughter): that would be impiety. But the Shayateen ever inspire their friends to contend with you; if ye were to obey them ye would indeed be pagans.
My dear and respected brother in Islam, we remind you as we remind ourselves, that just as it is a grave and heinous sin in the Sight of the Lord to declare something which He and His Messenger (saws) have declared as unlawful to be lawful..it is an equally grave sin to declare something which they have not declared as unlawful to be unlawful.
For example: if one were to say or believe that the consuming of dead meat, or meat of lawful animals not duely slaughtered, or swine, or alcohol, etc. are lawful when Allah and His Messenger (saws) have categorically declared them as unlawful.it would obviously be a grave and heinous sin in the Sight of the Lord.
Similarly if one were to say or believe or declare from themselves any food which is not specifically declared as unlawful by Allah and His Messenger (saws) to be unlawful for the believers (example: any type of fruits, or vegetables, or sea-food, or flesh of any lawful animal which is duly slaughtered, etc.).that too would be an equally huge and heinous sin in the Sight of Allah Subhanah; for to declare any food lawful or unlawful is the sole right of Allah and His Messenger (saws) alone.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verses 114-116:
114 So eat of the sustenance which Allah has provided for you lawful and good; and be grateful for the favors of Allah if it is He whom ye serve.
115 He has only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and any (food) over which the name of other than Allah has been invoked. But if one is forced by necessity without willful disobedience nor transgressing due limits, then Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.
116 But say not for any false thing that your tongues may put forth "This is halaal and this is haraam" so as to ascribe false things to Allah. For those who ascribe false things to Allah will never prosper.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
