Food from Qadiani neighbor

Fatwaa ID: 2220

Respected mufti sahib
Is it allowed to eat food received from a qadiani neighbor?
Meat and non- meat dishes

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

At the outset, Qadianis are out of the fold of Islam. Islam has nothing to do with them nor do they have anything to do with Islam. They are not Muslims even though they may claim to be. One of the fundamental tenets of faith is to believe in the finality of Sayyiduna Muhammad ﷺ; no prophet or messenger shall come after him. To believe otherwise renders one a kaafir.

Nevertheless, the meat and the slaughtering of a Qadiani is haraam. If a meat dish is received from a Qadiani, then it must be disposed. As for other food items or dishes received from them, then it will depend on the ingredients. If the ingredients are all halaal, then it would be permissible to eat it.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
