Eating iftaar with one whose wealth is haraam

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
Should we accept the Aftar which is given by a person who is getting almost HARAM money.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

If most of the man’s wealth is haraam, then it is permissible to accept his invitation. 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) accepted invitations to meals with the Jews, even though Allaah had described them as consuming riba (usury) and consuming the people’s wealth unlawfully. One of the salaf said concerning such cases: It is a gain for you and his sin is against him.  

It is also permissible for you not to accept his invitation as a rebuke to him for his haraam earnings. This is preferable if that will make him give up the evil that he is doing. 

And Allaah knows best.

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