Christians beliefs

The Child of a Buddhist
Question :

If the father of the child is Buddhist, and his mother is a Muslim, will the mother’s religion allow the child to be considered Muslim and tahir?

Answer :

The marriage is void in the said case since it is prohibited for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man. If she knew that her marriage was invalid, then the child is not considered tahir. If she was unaware of the invalidity of her marriage, then the child is considered tahir.

Non-Muslims
Question :

How should I explain to a Hindu friend that their food is najis?
My Hindu friend has studied parts of Islam and he knows that the pig, dog, urine, blood, alcohol and a few other disgusting things are najis. He finds it offensive that I consider him and even his four-year-old child najis.
Please provide ideas on how I can explain this to him.

Answer :

Not all their food is najis. If their food is dry and they have not touched it with dampness, such as nuts or fruit, then they are not najis. You do not have to inform him of such a law. It is better to deal with him nicely and avoid dealing with such an issue.

Sunnis
Question :

Is a non-believer in the imamah of the twelve Imams najis or not?

Answer :

No, he is not. All the believers in Almighty Allah and the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) are Muslims and tahir.

Najis things
Question :

I live where Muslims live in negligible ratio. There is no Muslim milkman. So is it allowed for us to take milk from a non-Muslim?

Answer :

It is permissible to buy milk from non-Muslims, but if he is not from the People of the book – Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians - and you know that they touched it, it becomes najis and not permissible to consume based on an obligatory precaution.

Food Made by Hindu
Question :

Can we eat food made by a Hindu if he does not use any prohibited things in it, although he uses his hands to make it?

Answer :

If the food preparation involves transferring of wetness between the person's hand/body and the food, then the food becomes najis and prohibited to consume, based on an obligatory precaution.
