Assalamu Alykum Worahmatullahi Wobarakatuhu. During this lockdown, many people who have wealth are helping other who haven’t money and food to help thier lives. I thought it may be haram for muslim to recieve from christians or other religion followers the donation.
So, can we recieve other religion’s charity or not?
Wa alaykum assalamu wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving.
All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad.
It is permissible to accept gifts and donations from non-Muslims as long as this involves no subordination, humiliation or submission to them as a consequence. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) accepted gifts sent to him by al-Muqawqis (ruler of Egypt) and the Byzantine Caesar of his time and both were non-Muslims.
Allah knows best.
