Ruling on accepting gifts from the mushrikeen


There is a masjid to be built and there are Christians around it. Are Muslims allowed to accept their donations to the masjid?.

Praise be to Allaah.

If there is a condition that goes against sharee’ah, then no.
But if they are straightforward donations with no conditions attached, then there is nothing wrong with that; the Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) often accepted gifts from the mushrikeen. End quote.
