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'm a Christian, during my days at University of Maiduguri, most of us Christian students always enjoy Ramadan food from Borno state government, if any of you say contrary, I don chop am well, I will still chop more till next ten decades, kis my ass

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...
You got it

It is very wrong, because Moslem worship God through Mohammed which was a human being who dies some years ago and never resurrect. While Christian worship God through Jesus Christ Who came down from heaven to save mankind. He died and resurrected and he is alive.

That's a great commandment grin

As long as I can eat the food (chicken, cow, goat and fish meat only ) as far as my dietary requirements are concerned, I will eat... I'll say a pray over it, just in case 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.
Yea that was what Paul wrote about in the book of Corinthians..you should not be judged by what you eat or by the sabbath nor any other holy day..if an unbeliever offers you food, thank the person and eat the food with all joy and thanks to God..But if you don’t feel comfortable to eat such food, then don’t eat because your conscience doesn’t agree..to him that eats and him that did not, both have not committed any sin..

Read first Corinthians chapter 10 verse 27...

why should I even give food to my christian friend or neighbourhood while alot of my Muslim's brother are out there who are mostly the needy. Except if you ask for it then I give you, pls audience should try to understand me not that am discriminate or been criticize my opponent religion, majority of christian has this very habit of rejecting from muslim Or disposing the food, so the moment you just realize that why wasting the resource which has not even yet sufficient to the community.

This is from the Good News Translation-
If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you decide to go, eat what is set before you, without asking any questions because of your conscience. ...1st Corinthians 10:27..
Re: Is It Right For Non-muslims To Accept Food Used In Breaking The Ramadan Fasting? by sanerugwei: 9:10am On Jun 03, 2018
Food is food.
Fast is broken at the first meal of the day hence the name breakFAST. So any other meal will be lunch(skipped) or dinner/supper (loaded).

Me like fruits so I will not reject the dessert if offered, wetin kosign agbero with overload.

So to the question, whether is it a sin or not depends on the level of faith and knowledge of the person accepting the meal.

st Paul said, all things are lawful but not all things are expedient.

In other words if accepting will cause you trouble or sliding, then don't.

FYI: the meal eaten at 4/5am is the breakFAST, nobody go wan share that one o, na heavy meal to compensate for the skipped lunch.

What concerns your assertion with food now?
Don't eat, stay there and be saying it's wrong.

"Olorun maje ka je ounje ota wa. Ti ore wa o ba gbe ti e sile nko? O je gba ti ota e ki o je, ko ya si mimo ko je" someone once told me that. For me nothing is really good or bad in life, it is our thinking that made it to be. If you are given, don't collect it. Hunger never wire you wella. I think someone who is very hungry will be in a better position to answer this your question very well. I could remember this MT Zion movie, the missionary was banished from the village and he was very hungry after seeing nothing to eat for many days. Meanwhile he climbed on top of a tree to sleep in the night, luckily for him, a sacrifice was brought to the tree for the gods. As soon as they left, my guy climbed down, blessed and ate the sacrifice. Even when Jesus was given those bread and fishes by the little boy in the bible to feed the multitude, was it written in there maybe the little boy was a Muslim or a christian? (Both didn't even exist by then). If you have been cheerfully given, why not collect it, bless and eat. A very very, I mean an extremely very very hungry man will never ask this your question.

Do you agree that religion has made us natural enemies with ourselves? Sometimes we over do,

I only remember the Bible says we should not eat what has been sacrificed to other gods, not to refuse just food

Ignorance on rampage.

Are you saying Allah and Jehovah are the same being?

Never heard a mooslim call on God as Jehovah or Yahweh or any other names Christians/Jews used. Even Hausa Christians know this, hence they call refer to and identify Him as Ubangiji(spellcheck) not Allah.

Neight do our Yoruba mooslims call Allah as Eledumere, Oluwa or other appellation in local dialect.

Go and research why this is so.

How was ur day

We as muslims are very much encouraged to eat your meat and food except that which is inherently forbiddden to us.
As for the love part,if you mean accepting Jesus as our Lord and pesonal saviour then we don't accept that as part of our faith.
If we hated you(christians) then there would be no need for the Qur'aan to enjoin us to eat your food.
Tolerance demands that you accept my way of life as far as it is not affecting you.
