Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Is it true that eating at a table (in a dining room) is imitating the kuffaar? Is using a spoon or fork when eating a kind of arrogance or imitating the kuffaar?.

Praise be to Allaah.
There is nothing wrong with eating at a table and the like, as mentioned, or with eating with a fork or spoon and the like, and that is not imitating the kuffaar, because it is not something that is unique to them.
And Allaah is the source of strength; may Allaah send blessing and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. 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.
