Eating the Food Cooked by a Disbeliever

Al-hamdu lillah (praise be to Allah). There is no objection for a Muslim to eat from food that a kaafir (unbeliever), whether polytheist or otherwise, has cooked, as the issue of cooking does not involve slaughtering according to Islamic guidelines so that we would require the person to be from ahl il-kitaab (People of the Book) among the kuffar. In fact, it is only a matter of cooking, so the only issues that concern us are cleanliness and the avoidance of najasa (impurity), and likewise that nothing haram (forbidden) is mixed with the food such as khamr (wine or alcoholic beverages) or lard.

May Allah protect us from harm, evil and the things he has forbidden (al-muharramaat).

Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullaah

These posts (including the gold teeth and other similar random ones)…. they are not from the class right?

JazakAllaahu Khayran

wa ‘alaykumu`s-salaam wa rahmatullaah

Any posts that are not titled “Lesson …” are added from IslamQA to provide answers to contemporary issues that aren’t covered in the relevant Lessons…

These may not necessarily be official Hanbali positions, although sometimes (in IslamQA) they are sourced from Imaam ibn Qudaamah’s other books of Fiqh.

BaarakAllaahu feek
