As-Salamu `alaykum. The dearest and closest Christian friend I have is a 90-year-old former Catholic priest who has been a joy and a loving supporter of me for several years. He's a beautiful man with a loving heart for all peoples and an enormous respect for Islam. He never fails to call me every day to check on me because of my disabilities. My question is: When his time comes to die, if he does before me, is it permissible for me to give a eulogy for him at a church or funeral home? Because his wife, 86, may indeed ask me and many know how close he and I are. Jazakum Allah Khayran
As-Salamu `alaykum. Can monetary contributions by non-Muslims be used on the construction of a Mosque? May Allah reward you for your good work.
As-Salamu `alaykum. I have a hadith which reads: "I was ordered to kill the people until they all say ‘There is no god but Allah and pay the Zakah.....’ I am not sure of the exact words but the hadith has the same meaning as above. Does this hadith mean that any non-Muslim should be killed?
What if a non-Muslim friend (for example, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Ahmadi) stays at our house and eats with us using our plates and sleeps in our beds. Are we allowed to use those plates again? Can we use the same bed sheets that he/she used without washing them?
AlSalaam Alikum When I married my wife she was Christian, now she does not believe in it and has spoken the shahadah in front of me but did not do ghusl and two rakats, she doesn't know how to pray.She has family back home in Lebanon who are Christian. She sends them money they need very much every year.Because of her shahadah and she does believe in Islam now, can that money she sends her family be considered ZAKAT for her? JAZAKUM ALLAH KHAIRAN
