Question : If we attend a wedding reception held by Christian friend, and they serve separate halal food, is it permissible for us to dine there and consume what they claim to the halal food, while we also know that the food was cooked by Christians who may not know the Islamic dietary laws?
Answer : If the food does not contain meat then one can consume it if he does not know that it is najis. If the food contains meat then it must be confirmed that it is slaughtered in accordance to the Sharia, in addition to not knowing that the food is najis. Confirmation of it being slaughtered in accordance to the sharia can be by knowing so himself or by a Muslim who one expects to say the truth informing him of this, or if the provider of the food claims that he obtained it from a Muslim as being slaughtered in accordance to the Sharia. The provider of the food can be non-Muslim who one does not expect to lie.
