Is It Right For Non-muslims To Accept Food Used In Breaking The Ramadan Fasting? by Pentools(m): 9:19am On May 27, 2018
Warmth greetings to us Nairaland family..
Happy Ramadan fasting to our Muslim brothers.
Quickly I want to ask, how right or rather proper for a non-muslim, particularly Christians to accept food/meat gift from our Muslim brothers, especially the ones used in breaking the fast..
My Muslim close associates have been gifting that persuasively and it now looks discriminatory to them, I'm a Christian by the way and they are well informed on that.

However this thread is never for religious warring or insults from anyone/religion against another, it's for better interreligious knowledge and information.

I think he means the latter... Muslims can and should accept 'halal' foods and drinks from christians and Jews, but not idol worshippers. I'm too sleepy to remember the right terms for them but it's the belief in the 1 God thing.

I don't know what the Christian view on the matter is...

Biblically, the Christian view is that it doesn't really matter as there is no longer any distinction between clean and unclean foods anymore, but then as Nigerians have the innate tendency to take religion to the extreme, accepting Ramadan food in some churches is seen as idol worship.


As for me though, food can't waste. That is the greatest sin grin

The last time my Muslim neighbor gave me food, for the fact that the meat look like big blokos, is till chop the food and the meat after the grace. As you see am the one cementing by my self, still enjoying the grace, mercy, kindness from God

The rule is this, If your conscience disturbs you about eating, then dont eat, otherwise, Blessed and eat, then give glory to God and pray for the provider.

The question is, Christians collecting food from Muslims during their Ramadan celebration or maybe the food they used in breaking their fast. How right is that...

Lolz
I don't think conscience comes in play here, cus is more like how you've been wired from the onset. For example if you're been told so so neighbor is evil and that you should be mindful of the person while growing up, even after you've grown each time you have any intimate contact with the person your conscience will definitely trouble you even without any proof to back such accusations.

Guy, e be like say hunger never give you first degree wounding, na him make you dey ask.


I never segregate against food, unless it's not delicious, all this Muslims who reject Christmas food and the Christians who reject sallah meat, remind yourself that there are people out there who are praying to see food even once in 3 days, people are dying of hunger

God made us all as man and woman, not Christian or Muslim so please let us reduce the bigotry and learn to accept and tolerate each other

Tomorrow is a gift, today is a unique opportunity to *Sow the Seed of the expected God's transformation for our lifes* .

God has given us another opportunity to witness the *First Sunday* of the Month and we therefore have the great chance to open our heart to him.

Remember to pray for Nigeria!
Remember to pray for Kwara!
Remember to pray for Kwara South!

Happy Sunday!!!

there is nothing wrong with a muslim giving christian fasting food and the christian accepting it.its called love from the giver and love from the accepter the world would be a better place if faiths and religions are practiced this way we are humans created by one creator whether it be allah,jesus,jehovah obantala e.t.c there is no life without love op.

As far as it's not prepared in the name of one idol or for any sacrifice and it's neatly prepared and it's my kind of food. I'll eat. Aside these, it's bigotry and extremism.

Food is food. You are trying to discriminate. If you are offered Ramadan meal and hungry, eat it. Islam is a religion of good people.

I’m a Christian.
