Ruling on accepting gifts from the mushrikeen

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:
There is a masjid to be built and there are Christians around it. Are Muslims allowed to accept their donations to the masjid?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

If there is a condition that goes against sharee’ah, then no. But if they are straightforward donations with no conditions attached, then there is nothing wrong with that; the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) often accepted gifts from the mushrikeen. End quote. 

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.
